Real Madrid were crowned La Liga champions after Barcelona failed to beat Girona.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side moved thirteen points clear at the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Cadiz on Saturday thanks to goals from Brahmin Diaz, Jobe Bellingham and Joselu.

The result meant Barcelona had to defeat their Catalan rivals to have any chance of knocking them out of first place.

Under pressure, Xavi’s side got off to the perfect start at the Estadi Montilivi, with Andreas Christensen firing them in front after just three minutes.

Girona have consistently punched above their weight this season, and the City Football Group side immediately hit back after falling behind and equalizing through Artem Dovbyk.

As half-time approached, Robert Lewandowski restored Barça’s lead from the penalty spot to take their tally to 24 for the season in all competitions.

The hosts, however, seized the momentum after the restart and three goals in ten minutes dealt the final blow to their opponents’ title hopes.

Substitute Portu equalized before former Real youngster Miguel Gutierrez fired his side in front with a deflected strike from close range.

Portu then doubled his tally for the match to put the result beyond doubt, scoring an excellent volley from the edge of the box.
