Real Madrid one point away from La Liga title

Real Madrid one point away from La Liga title

As such a draw in the La Rosaleda Stadium is enough for Madrid to start the celebrations for the first time since 2012 and to tee up a Liga and Champions League double, ahead of the Champions League final on June 3rd.

An insatiable Cristiano Ronaldo fired Real Madrid to a 4-1 win over Celta Vigo on Wednesday to take Zinedine Zidane's side three points clear at the top of La Liga and within touching distance of winning a first league title in five years.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his goal against Celta Vigo during a Spanish League match on Wednesday.

"We knew that the three points were the most important thing, but we went out there to play, the win was only a outcome".

Madrid will clearly want to put this fixture to bed as early as possible and will inevitably be looking to win this fixture instead of trying to cling on for a title-winning point.

Zinedine Zidane's side are now top of the table, three points ahead of Barcelona heading into the final batch of fixtures.

Ronaldo partnered Karim Benzema up front, with Isco supporting the two forwards.

Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Pakistan says it does not accept ICJ's jurisdiction
Asserting its jurisdiction in the Jhadav case, ICJ president Ronny Abraham said the circumstances of his arrest remain disputed. There is an urgency in the case as Kulbhushan Jadhav was at risk of being executed.

United, criticized for playing cautiously under Mourinho, has scored just two goals in its last five games.

Meanwhile, ex-Barca prospect Sandro Ramirez is a major threat in front of goal, having found the net 14 times in La Liga this season, per WhoScored.com.

The Portuguese global put the visitors ahead 1-0 in the 10th minute, blasting the ball past Celta goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez after a pass from Isco Alarcon.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Celta did manage to pull a goal back when Guidetti's effort deflected past the helpless Navas off Ramos. In a game as tight as the Champions League final against Juventus will be, his current form could be the deciding factor.

"We had to go until the end, the game has been very good and we played well, but we know that Malaga are strong at home".

"We still have the most hard job ahead of us", Real coach Zinedine Zidane said on Thursday. 'We have a very good squad with lots of good young players and others with experience. "We know what we need to do, we need to prepare well and recover from today as we gave so much".

Third-place Atletico and fourth-place Sevilla have already guaranteed a place in the Champions League next season, although Sevilla will have to go through a playoff in August to enter the group stage.
