Real Madrid's victory over Atletic Bilbao last night saw them bring an end to Barcelona's run of three straight Primera Liga titles.

It has been an incredible season for Jose Mourinho's side, who remain on course to reach 100 points for the season and who have scored over 100 goals. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 44 of those.

Mourinho has described his seventh domestic title as the "toughest" of his career, telling RealMadridTV: "I won the league title in Portugal, Italy and England, but this one has been the toughest.

"I've won seven league titles overall and I know what it feels like.

"Barcelona won all their games, as befits the great team that they are. They've been winning to the very last day.

"They are a club with great tradition that knows we deserved to win this title."

Here, we take a look at the twists and turns in Real's battle to usurp their great rivals.
