Real Madrid On The Cusp Of First League Title In Five Years

And soon the title race goes to the very last day of the season, as we all expected, but with Real Madrid virtually over the line after a 4-1 win over Celta Vigo, as we all expected. Assuming Barca win Sunday, Madrid needs at least a draw against Malaga to win the league title.

Real have also gambled on the Spanish football association's appeals committee ruling in their favour by naming suspended defender Nacho in the 20-man squad for the trip on Wednesday, hoping his ban will be overturned.

"I'm feeling well, everything will be decided this weekend and I'm doing well, scoring goals and helping the team". "After that we will have 13 days to prepare well to try to win the Champions League final".

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo either side of half-time put Real in control and Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos both scored late goals finished off Celta, who have now lost their last six league matches. "I expect Celta to play like normal". This is a hard place to come and it was a tough game. Greaves scored his first in the 1957-58 campaign, before netting his last goal for West Ham during the 1970-71 season.

"We still have to play the last game and it is going to be at least as hard as it was in Vigo", continued the Real Madrid coach, who ruled out playing for the draw that will assure the title.

However, it was game on 20 minutes from time as John Guidetti halved the deficit with a deflected shot from the edge of the area. The Welshman has lifted the trophy twice since completing his then world record breaking £86m move from Tottenham in 2013.

Zinedine Zidane: "The Celta team that will play in Vigo are going to come out as professionals, as they have to". "We have been at this for nine months, with some difficulties at times, against very good rivals".

Have you got a burning desire to find out who our panel think deserves to be crowned player of the season, or do want to see if their goal of the season choice tallies with yours?

Malaga could be tricky because it has been in strong form recently.

REAL MADRID are just a point away from their first La Liga title since 2012.

"We are highly motivated and, although we only need a point, we will go there to win, as always".
