The victory marked their 33rd Spanish league title, the first in five years:“It’s the best I’m really happy, very very happy. It was a great match and the goalkeeper Navas played really well so I am very happy.”
Don't ever doubt a man who is giving his all even his life to Real Madrid. Grande, Keylor Navas! Mi vida. pic.twitter.com/AUSovgkcAp— ¡CAMPEONES! 🏆 (@SaveItLikeNavas) 21 May 2017
Arch-rivals Barcelona had to settle for second place despite victory in coach Luis Enrique’s final home match.

The Barca fans tried to be philosophical:
“I don’t think Madrid won, I think Barca lost; because Barca won against all the big teams, but we failed against the smaller teams. I think that Madrid deserves it they are the champions, but we gave the league as a present.”
