Ex-Super Eagles midfielder celebrates Real Madrid’s La Liga victory

Ex-international, Mutiu Adepoju, is among those revelling in Real Madrid’s La Liga success of Real Madrid after Thursday’s 2-1 defeat of Villarreal.

Karim Benzema scored a goal in each half as Los Blancos clinched a 34th Spanish elite division title at the expense of Barcelona, who bowed 2-1 at home to Osasuna.

The Frenchman opened the scoring after 29 minutes as Casemiro picked off Sofian Chakla’s pass and Luka Modric laid the ball into the path of Benzema, who scored through the legs of Sergio Asenjo.

Zinedine Zidane’s men were given a chance to double the lead when Los Blancos were awarded a penalty by referee Alejandro Hernandez after Chakla clipped Sergio Ramos, who whizzed forward.

In the resulting kick, the captain cheekily passed the ball off the spot for Benzema to score, only for the latter to encroach, but Benzema clinically dispatched the re-take into the bottom-left corner.

With seven minutes left to play, Vicente Iborra pulled one back for the Yellow Submarine, albeit, that could not deny the hosts all points at stake.

Fuelled by the excitement of seeing his former team crowned as Spanish league champions, the Nigerian football great and La Liga ambassador took to social media to celebrate the feat in a series of tweets.

“Kudos to you all. Now, we have the Champions League to fight for! Until then, Who will join me to party tonight?”
