Ronaldo could take Madrid to brink of title in Celta Vigo

Real remain vulnerable defensively as their only clean sheet in their last eight came against bottom of the league Granada, but given they've netted 26 goals themselves in that time, they haven't really had to worry about defending.

The Catalans have scored more goals in La Liga than Madrid in 2016-17 and conceded fewer - but it is Real's ruthlessness that makes them favourites for the title.

"They tried to use the media to get the game played, with quite unusual proposals like moving to another stadium to play".

Ronaldo, Real's all-time leading scorer, passed a new club milestone after scoring his 400th and 401st competitive goals in the 4-1 victory over Sevilla.

Real's game in hand comes at Celta on Wednesday in a match postponed from February due to storm damage at Celta's Balaidos stadium.

Real Madrid took a 3-0 lead into their Champions League semi-final second leg against neighbours Atlético and could have sat back and for qualification purposes had no need to score.

Chelsea's Premier League title triumph in numbers
It's the best day for chelsea today", said Batshuayi, who arrived from Marseille previous year in a £33.2 million transfer. Just after the hour mark, Hazard cut inside and drove in a wild shot that went out for a throw-in.

Real Madrid and Barcelona both picked up 4-1 victories on Sunday with the battle for the La Liga title set to go down to the wire.

Atletico Madrid drew 1-1 away to Betis to assure third place and automatic qualification for next season's Champions League, while Sevilla are guaranteed fourth spot and a play-off berth in Europe's elite competition after fifth-placed Villarreal drew 0-0 at home to Deportivo La Coruna, who clinched survival.

Ricardo Carvalho has praised Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, saying the Frenchman has already secured his standing as a "great coach".

"He's just got something, he's different", Zidane said. We're going to try to play really well in the two remaining games.

"Anything can happen, but we always think positively and we'll give everything until the end".

"They have two very hard games against two teams, Celta and Malaga, who we have lost against this season", the Barca boss said to Movistar after the victory over Las Palmas, secured courtesy of Neymar's hat-trick and a Luis Suarez strike. We just have to win next Sunday against Eibar at Camp Nou. Celta went into the game having been agonisingly dumped out of the Europa League by Manchester United and also on a four-game losing streak in LaLiga.
