On March 2, 1941, we won the second league title in our history. The Red & White team, under the name of Atlético-Aviación, carried out a brilliant campaign that made them win the trophy for the second time in a row for the first time.

That afternoon, Atlético-Aviación received Real Oviedo at the Vallecas Stadium in the last league matchday, to which they arrived as leaders, with 31 points in their locker, the same as their immediate pursuers, Atlético de Bilbao, a situation that forced them to get the victory to certify the title.
