The 2016–17 La Liga season was the 86th season of La Liga. It was also known as LaLiga Santander for sponsorship reasons.[2] The season began on 19 August 2016 and ended on 21 May 2017.

Real Madrid won the title after their victory against Málaga on the final matchday. This win gave Them their record 33rd title, and their first since the 2011–12 season.[3] They also became only the second side, after Barcelona in 2012–13, to score in all 38 games of a La Liga season.[4]
