Real Madrid sets its sights on first Liga title in 5 years

Real Madrid sets its sights on first Liga title in 5 years

He created the history after netting for Real Madrid within 10 minutes against Celta Vigo on Wednesday.

The win moves Real Madrid up to 90 points - three ahead of Barcelona at the top of the table.

Madrid play their final league game off the campaign against Malaga on Sunday, and that gives Isco an opportunity to win his first league title in his home town, something he said would be special.

"We are going to continue playing as we have been doing, we can't play like that, we have to play as we always play and we know it will be hard, but we are going to go to win the match", he concluded.

Goal difference would only have come in to play had the two sides' aggregate head-to-head scores been level.

Ronaldo, who in reaching 368 league goals for a top European club overtook Jimmy Greaves in the all-time scorers list, struck early in each half as Real held Celta at arm's length to claim a 4-1 victory.

Ronaldo opened the scoring at the Balaidos Stadium after picking up the ball just outside the area and firing a firm left-foot shot into the corner.

A point in the South of Spain will be enough to secure a first title in five years. "I expect Celta to play like normal". Iago Aspas was a constant threat and he could draw the game from outside the box.

There is no more time off for Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates.

However, the visitors went straight up the other end and Marcelo's low cross was tapped home by Karim Benzema to restore Real's two-goal cushion. Toni Kroos calmly completed the scoring late on. In his last media appearance, though, he said Malaga had beaten Barca and could spring a surprise on Madrid too.

This game was originally scheduled for February but had to be postponed due to storm damage at Balaidos, with its rearrangement for the final week of the season creating some extra drama.

Zinedine Zidane insisted his Real Madrid stars don't feel like champions yet, as his side close in on a potential double. Ronaldo is firing on all cylinders right now, and it will take a huge calamity to prevent him from leading Real Madrid to a league and Champions League double this season.
