Real Madrid would be deserving La Liga champions - Casemiro

Real Madrid would be deserving La Liga champions - Casemiro

Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid league goals, overtaking Jimmy Greaves (366) as the all-time top scorer in the top five leagues.

Ronaldo scored early in each half as Madrid defeated 10-man Celta Vigo 4-1 on Wednesday to retake the league lead from Barcelona and move within a point of winning the title.

However if Madrid can avoid defeat against the Boquerones on Sunday - a draw or victory would hand them the title - they will have to pay Malaga €1 million.

"One game to go", Ronaldo said.

"We're going to keep doing what we've been doing up until now".

"We played with incredible attitude and personality", said Real manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Colombian consequently missed the midweek rescheduled clash at Celta that saw Real Madrid securing three crucial points to move within a point of the La Liga trophy - being now three points ahead of Barcelona with only one game remaining.

Controversy erupted in the 62nd minute, as Referee Juan Martinez Munera showed Celta's Iago Aspas a second yellow card for diving when he appeared to have been tripped by Sergio Ramos inside the area.

Once through the stormy atmosphere, they find a beautifully mountainous landscape complete with foggy lakes and fields of wheat. Covenant is a more traditional Alien movie as it features Xenomorph (s) and horror fans will love the gore, blood and violence.

Jose Mourinho says the Premier League's unwillingness to help Manchester United prepare for their Europa League final will force him to pick youth players against Crystal Palace on Sunday. The ball went through the legs of defender Gustavo Cabral and gave goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez no chance.

Elsewhere Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad are battling to finish in the top six and reach the Europa League next season.

"He has managed things very well", Ronaldo said.

Celta, with nothing left to play for, improved after conceding the first goal and started to threaten, with Aspas creating a series of chances.

Karim Benzema, however, restored Madrid's two goal cushion a minute later and Toni Kroos completed the rout with a fine strike.

If Barcelona beat Alaves in the Copa del Rey final then the team which finishes seventh will gain qualification for the tournament in any case, because one spot is allocated to the Spanish Cup winners and the Catalans will be in the Champions League. The Colombian global missed the trip to Galicia amid speculation linking him with Manchester United but could be ready to return to action for the final league game against Malaga on Sunday (21 May).

The game had been due to take place in February but was rescheduled after the roof of the Balaidos stadium was damaged in a storm, provoking a dispute between the two sides. In 100 games at Madrid I have never once been sent off.
