THE SANTIAGO BERNABÉU WEIGHS IN

REAL MADRID’S ELEVEN READY
HOW DID IT GO FOR MADRID IN THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONS?
Real Madrid traveled in midweek to face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in what was the first leg semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. The Merengue team started the match a little distracted, as they conceded two early goals that seemed to indicate a tough defeat for the Merengues, however, the action was just beginning as with goals from Karim Benzema and Vinicus Jr, Madrid would get back into the tie to leave the match in a 4-3 in favor of City with the desire to define everything in the second leg.
SODS TO ESPANYOL!
Matchday 34 could mean the end of LaLiga in Spain, as the most popular, biggest and historic club in the country is only 90 minutes away from being able to win another league title at the Santiago Bernabéu if they manage to defeat or draw with Espanyol. However, although it seems a simple mission, the visitors were one of the few teams to defeat Real Madrid this season after defeating them 2-1 at the beginning of the Tournament, so they will be looking to do the same feat now on Madrid’s turf .
THE WAIT IS OVER
The wait is over, the LaLiga actions in Spain are back, Real Madrid is just about to be crowned as the new king in the Iberian country and only a defeat could lengthen the wait for them to win the crown so desired at the beginning of the season. A perfect scenario for the Merengue team, a full Bernabeu, needing only 1 point and facing one of the most irregular rivals in the competition, Real Madrid can be crowned today!

About the Stadium:
Seeking to close with regularity
For their part, Espanyol will be looking to finish the Spanish league with consistency, as throughout the season they remained in mid-table positions and failed to do more in other tournaments such as the Copa del Rey, so they should close the championship in a good way and aspire to finish the season among the top 10 positions in LaLiga. Currently, Espanyol has 39 points added that were the product of 33 games played where they got 10 wins, 9 draws and 14 defeats, also, in the statistics they average a total of 36 goals and 37 against, a situation that leaves them with a difference of -1.
The title is in their hands
Real Madrid basically dominated the entire LaLiga season as they are the team with the most victories over the course of the season, they never stopped occupying first place and gradually began to leave behind all the teams in the race for the league title, now, after the defeat of Barcelona and with Sevilla having the same points as the Culé team, Real Madrid basically has the Spanish league on a silver platter as they only need a draw or a win against Espanyol to be crowned champions of Spain once again. The team coached by Ancelotti could be carrying the cup on the mythical Santiago Bernabeu’s lawn after having a duel in the Champions League and give one more joy in the season to all the Real Madrid fans. Currently, Real Madrid is the overall leader of LaLiga with 78 points obtained as a result of 33 games played where they have achieved 24 wins, 6 draws and 3 defeats throughout the competition, they are also the top scorer with 69 goals and have one of the best defensive lines with 29 goals allowed, leaving them with a difference of +40.
