Ronaldo Double Propels Real to the Brink of La Liga

Ronaldo Double Propels Real to the Brink of La Liga

Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid went three points clear of Barcelona in the La Liga table. Standing in the way of a first title since 2012 is a Malaga side with little at stake and who are coached by Michel, who spent 14 trophy laden seasons at the Bernabeu.

Zidane has also frequently rested and rotated Ronaldo this summer and it's paid dividends as he has ended the season in prolific goalscoring form - he has 13 goals in his last eight games. The Catalan club still has a chance of winning its third straight title because of a better head-to-head tiebreaker.

With Celta down to 10 men after former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas was shown a second yellow for diving in the penalty box, the home side's defence was stretched as Real Madrid hit them on the counter-attack.

Picking up the ball in what seemed like a safe area Ronaldo looked up and fired an unstoppable left-footed drive into the back of Sergio Alvarez's net.

A point in the South of Spain will be enough to secure a first title in five years.

Ronaldo was fantastic, even though he should have had a hat trick, missing a sitter in the second half.

Ronaldo opened the scoring just 11 minutes in with this violent nutmeg golazo. "It is not usual for me to have a miss like that, but it can happen to human beings who can make mistakes too".

When Los Blancos should be more comfortable with the ball, they started to play worse and Celta arrived with danger to Keylor Navas goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been setting records right and left throughout his pro soccer career. Toni Kroos completed the scoring in the 88th.

This is the fourth time this season that Real face Celta. It reached the semifinals of the Europa League, being eliminated by Manchester United.

On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 22:00, the rescheduled match of the 21 round of the Spanish Championship will take place, in which at the stadium "Balaydos" in Vigo, the local Celta will play against Real Madrid.
