Jude Bellingham scores an incredible goal after a mind-blowing ball from Toni Kroos

In front of home supporters, Real Madrid celebrated their 36th La Liga title on Tuesday with a commanding 5-0 victory over Alaves thanks to two goals from Vinicius Junior. Los Blancos maintained their perfect home record in the league this season, hoping to go undefeated at home for the first time since 2019–20. With four games remaining and a position in the Champions League final, they claimed the league title with ease.

A superb rocket from a cross by Toni Kroos gave Jude Bellingham the lead for good in the tenth minute, and Vinicius scored a second goal from close range just before the half-hour mark. Just before the half, Federico Valverde sent a strong shot into the top of the net to make it 3-0.

Alaves attempted to put pressure on Thibaut Courtois, the custodian who has missed much of the season due to injury, but the Belgian made a compelling argument for his place in Carlo Ancelotti's starting lineup for the Champions League final by stopping a valiant effort from Ianis Hagi.

With a well-executed cross from Bellingham in the 70th minute, Vinicius increased the advantage to 4-0. Substitute Arda Guler then finished the scoring with a low effort after pouncing on a rebound.
