Real Madrid romped to their first-ever league title, as reflected by the fact that they remained unbeaten throughout the entire campaign. The Whites were embroiled in a fierce battle with Athletic Club, which was decided on the final day thanks to an away win at FC Barcelona.
Madrid won the league for the second year in a row and, once again, the title race went right to the wire against Athletic Club. Pedro Regueiro and Josep Samitier were the standout signings of the season and represented significant reinforcements to Robert Edwin Firth's squad.
Madrid's third LaLiga title came following a 21-season drought. The signing of Alfredo Di Stéfano was absolutely crucial as Madrid went on to secure the league crown. The Whites' fans began to revel in watching a team that would go on to dominate Spanish and European football in the years to come.
Madrid retained their title whilst setting a new points record in the process. It was during this campaign that the stadium was renamed the Santiago Bernabéu, and despite a change of coach after Matchday 14, Real Madrid won the title with a five-point cushion over Barcelona.
After winning their first European Cup in the previous season, Real Madrid got their hands on the league title following the marquee signing of Raymond Kopa. The Whites were crowned champions in the penultimate game of the season, in which they ran out 2-1 winners over Zaragoza at La Romareda.
A second consecutive league title and this time it was Atlético Madrid who were the Whites' closest pursuers. Two international stars were drafted into the squad in the form of the Argentine goalkeeper, Rogelio Domínguez and Uruguayan defender, José Santamaría, with the pair coming in as replacements for veterans such as José Luis Pérez Payá, Luis Molowny and José Antonio Navarro.
After two consecutive second-place finishes, this season marked the start of a run of five titles in a row. The capture of goalkeeper Vicente Train from Espanyol proved to be a successful acquisition as the shotstopper went on to clinch the Zamora Trophy. The team's formidable record at the Santiago Bernabéu was instrumental as the Whites remained unbeaten on home turf en route to lifting the club's seventh league title. Meanwhile, this campaign also saw the side string together an impressive 26-game unbeaten run.
The Whites repeated the feat the following season, during which Luis Araquistáin, Antonio Betancort, Isidro, Justo Tejada, Ruiz II and Vicente Miera all arrived at the club. The madridistas were thoroughly dominant at the summit as they held on to top spot from Matchday 4 onwards.
In this campaign, Real Madrid showed impressive consistency on their way to winning yet another league title. They were league leaders for all but three rounds of fixtures and new arrivals Amancio Amaro, Ignacio Zoco and Lucien Müller performed superbly throughout the season.
The Whites extended their run to make it five consecutive titles and got to keep their hands on the trophy for the third time. Thanks to the emergence of the Yé-yé generation, the madridistas enjoyed a successful first season following on from Di Stéfano's departure.
After lifting the European Cup in the previous season, Real Madrid reasserted their dominance on the domestic front, winning the league with a five-point advantage over Barcelona. Madrid continued to enjoy success in this period of transition as they laid the foundations for another successful spell.
This was the first season following the departure of Ferenc Puskas, with Rafael De Diego, José Luis Peinado, Miguel Pérez and Antonio Iznata all brought in to soften the blow and the Whites duly went on to claim a second successive title. Manuel Velázquez was a standout performer as he recorded his most prolific campaign, in which he notched 10 goals.
Real Madrid got their hands on their third consecutive title, which would prove to be their last during the 1960s. With Miguel Muñoz in charge, the team shot straight to the top of the standings after the third round of games and never looked back. They remained in first place for the rest of the season as they put together a 28-match unbeaten run.
Real Madrid dealt with their first campaign following the departure of Paco Gento in the best possible fashion. They added another LaLiga title to their trophy cabinet, dominating the championship from the second matchday onwards. The squad welcomed a few new faces, the most notable among them being Carlos Alonso Santillana, who was joined by Mariano García Remón, Juan Verdugo and Eduardo Anzarda.
After 14 years with coach Miguel Muñoz at the helm, Real Madrid opted to hand the reins to Yugoslavian boss, Miljan Miljanic. The season couldn't have gone any better and Real Madrid finished their league campaign 12 points clear of their nearest challengers, Zaragoza.
Miljanic repeated the trick in his second campaign, this time in a far more close-fought title race with Atlético Madrid and Barcelona. Amancio was one of the stars of a season in which he announced that he would be calling time on his playing career. El Brujo capped his glittering career with a ninth league title.
Real Madrid reclaimed the league crown in a campaign marked by the arrival of two players who would go on to etch their names in the club's history books: Uli Stielike and Juanito. Meanwhile, other players to check in during the summer of this season were Andrés Sabido, Isidro and Quique Wolff.
Following the passing of Santiago Bernabéu, Luis de Carlos assumed the club's presidency and the new chief backed Molowny to remain in the dugout. That decision proved to be justified as Real Madrid ended the first half of the campaign with just one defeat to their name, a run which set the side up to go on and secure the league title.
The biggest changes during the course of this season saw Vujadin Boskov appointed as head coach and Laurie Cunningham drafted into the forward line as a part of a new project which culminated in Madrid securing a third successive title. The Spanish Cup triumph over Castilla represented another highlight of the campaign for the Real Madrid faithful.
A five-season title drought was simply too long for a club of Real Madrid's standing. Three signings were made in an attempt to see a return of the glory days and these proved to be masterstrokes, with Antonio Maceda, Gordillo and Hugo Sánchez all making a real impact. Under the stewardship of Molowny came a first league title for La Quinta del Buitre.
Real Madrid successfully defended their crown in a season in which the new play-off system was trialled. After 34 matchdays, the Whites came up against Barcelona, Espanyol, Sporting Gijón, Zaragoza and Mallorca to determine who would be crowned champions. Leo Beenhakker got his rein off to a successful start by leading his troops to glory.
Real Madrid sealed a third straight league title, a feat which saw them keep the hold of the trophy. The Whites dominated right throughout the 38-matchday season, taking top spot on Matchday 1 after a 4-0 romp against Cádiz and they remained league leaders throughout the whole campaign.
Real Madrid secured a fourth successive title success as they brushed their challengers aside with consummate ease. The Whites moved top of the pile on Matchday 8 and from then on in never once did they relinquish their grip at the summit. Beenhakker once again enjoyed great success in this, his third season in the Bernabéu hotseat.
This Real Madrid side again showcased their fine football and goalscoring prowess to secure a fifth title in a row. Leo Beenhakker departed and was replaced by Welshman John Toshack, who not only led his charges to the title, but also saw his side enter the top-flight history books after netting 107 goals in 38 outings.
Jorge Valdano was appointed as Real Madrid head coach and the Whites went on to lift the league title four years on from their last domestic success. The signings of Michael Laudrup, Fernando Redondo, Quique and José Emilio Amavisca saw the Santiago Bernabéu faithful treated to another league crown. Iván Zamorano and Amavisca formed a lethal partnership which enjoyed great joy against the division's defences.
Fabio Capello's arrival brought with it a massive overhaul in personnel. Davor Suker, Clarence Seedorf, Carlos Secretario, Predrag Mijatovic, Roberto Carlos, Bodo Illgner, Christian Panucci and Zé Roberto all joined the club during this season. The new arrivals bedded in seamlessly and the league title was secured in a campaign in which the Whites went undefeated at the Bernabéu.
This season got underway with a new president at the helm. Florentino Pérez triumphed in the elections and set about overseeing a new project which Luis Figo was at the heart of. Vicente Del Bosque continued to lead a side that had lifted the club's eighth European Cup in the previous season after seeing off Valencia in the showpiece.
The arrival of Ronaldo Nazário to the club afforded the Whites' squad an all the more formidable look to it, after the club had secured the services of Zinedine Zidane the previous year. On this occasion, the team that Madrid were tasked with overcoming in their pursuit of the title was a Real Sociedad side who had led the way for most of the season but ultimately finished two points behind Del Bosque's champions.
Ten years after having left the club, Fabio Capello was back at Real Madrid and, as in his previous stint, he again led his side to the title. The Whites improved as the season progressed, only occupying top spot as late as Matchday 34. Ruud Van Nistelrooy's 25-goal haul in his debut campaign made all the difference in the final reckoning.
Real Madrid reclaimed the title they had won the previous year in what was an excellent campaign under new coach Bernd Schuster. Arjen Robben, Cristoph Metzelder, Wesley Sneijder, Javier Saviola, Pepe, Gabriel Heinze, Royston Drenthe and Jerzy Dudek were all new additions to the squad in this season.
Real Madrid bagged their 32nd league title to add to their honours haul in a competition in which they boast the distinction of being the most decorated club. Since the inception of the league back in 1928, the Whites have been able to keep hold of the trophy on five occasions. Under José Mourinho, Madrid's easy-on-the-eye football led them to another title as they racked up 100 points. Meanwhile, the 121 goals notched during the campaign saw the Whites surpass the all-time record for goals scored in a league season.
Real Madrid won the league title at La Rosaleda after a thrilling end to the season, recording six consecutive victories to maintain the advantage over Barcelona. Zidane's team ended the league season with several statistical milestones: record number of away goals in the history of the championship (58), eighth consecutive league season scoring more than 100 goals and the first season ever scoring in every matches of the campaign.
