Carlo AncelottiThe boys depend on themselves to lift the trophy and it only takes one point to be champion. If the Merengues don’t lose Espanyol on Saturday, they will automatically win the Spanish League Title.

Even if they lost, Real Madrid would secure the top spot in the table if Barcelona don’t win Majorca on Sunday. As a result, Carletto’s team are only steps away from not only winning a prestigious trophy, but also bringing home a big cash prize.

How much money do the 2021-22 La Liga winners receive?

According to Spanish journalist Roberto Bayon’s estimate, the prize money for the 2020-21 champions, Atlético Madridwas 59,500,000 million euros and it wouldn’t be much different this time.

Apart from the financial benefit of winning the tournament, the Spanish league champions can also play in the Spanish Super Cupwhich offers another opportunity to win a piece of silverware and of course, more money.
