Unstoppable Ronaldo aims to take Real to brink of title


Barcelona and Madrid both have 87 points, although Barça are top courtesy of their favourable head-to-head record. Real Madrid official Emilio Butragueño confirmed in the Flash Zone after the game: "Nacho did nothing at all to deserve going into the book", hinting at the appeal.

Celta were knocked out of the Europa League by United last week.

Colombia captain James Rodriguez appeared to wave goodbye to the Real Madrid faithful as he was substituted in Sunday's win over Sevilla amid claims that he is set to leave the Bernabeu. "We are giving our absolute all in every game, every move, giving everything".

"What happened happened, and we must play this game now", Zidane said. Nacho is suspended after his yellow card against Sevilla, so we may at least not have any "quick-thinking" free kicks to worry about.

Despite growing through the longest droughts in the competition, Ronaldo has time and again proven that he is an indispensable player for the Los Blancos. "He's just got something, he's different". To beat them we must play very well and perform like we did in the cup win over them. The right-back suffered a grade 2 hamstring injury against arch rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and is expected to miss the rest of the season. It was the flawless goal for the occasion, and epitomised the inhuman goal-scoring instinct of Ronaldo.

This is it! This is the game in hand Real Madrid have had for some time on Barcelona and they need to cash it all on for a point or two to secure the La Liga title!

The game was originally scheduled for February but was postponed due to storm damage at Celta's Balaidos stadium.

Zidane warned his team they have to be at their best, however, if they are to lift their first league trophy since 2012, denying Barcelona their third consecutive victory. "I expect Celta to play like normal".

James has spent three seasons with Real Madrid.

Leganes' draw and the point claimed by Deportivo La Coruna in Villarreal means that Sporting Gijon are relegated to the second division despite a 1-0 win away to Eibar thanks to a first half goal from Burgui.
