Real Madrid crowned La Liga champions as Barcelona suffer shock defeat to Osasuna

Spanish giants Real Madrid are the 2019/20 La Liga champions following a 2-1 win over Villarreal.

Karim Benzema netted the two goals to ensure Madrid wrap their 34th title up, with rivals Barcelona losing 2-1 to Osasuna.

Real Madrid took the lead in the 29th minute through Karim Benzema, a goal that put them on course to seal the La Liga title. Casemiro won the ball high up the pitch before laying off to Modric. With Villarreal’s defence disjointed, the Croatia international surges forward and tees it up for Benzema who fires the ball through Asenjo’s legs and into the net!

Karim Benzema has scored 20+ goals in consecutive @LaLigaEN seasons for the first time (21 in 2018/19 and 20 in 2019/20)

Barcelona 1-1 Osasuna

Osasuna took the lead in the 16th minute through Jose Arnaiz. Pervis Estupinan made a run behind Roberto and cut it back for Arnaz who punished slack defending from Pique and Lenglet to smash it home.

In the second half, Lionel Messi scored from the spot to draw Barcelona level. Suarez went down, rather easily, outside the box as Messi stood over the set-piece. The Argentine maestro curled in a stunning free-kick that swerved into the near corner. The Blaugrana needed one more goal to keep its title hunt alive with Real Madrid leading 1-0 against Villarreal
