Real Madrid on verge of title after Ronaldo inspires win at Celta

The ill feeling increased when Celta were denied a penalty for a handball by Raphael Varane towards the end of the first half which saw Aspas booked for dissent.

The Welshman has lifted the trophy twice since completing his then world record breaking £86m move from Tottenham in 2013.

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

"We have a very good squad with lots of good young players and others with experience".

A point in the South of Spain will be enough to secure a first title in five years.

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.

Marcelo beat his man on the left wing before squaring for Karim Benzema to tap-in from close range barely a minute after they had conceded.

A victory against Celta Vigo on Wednesday at Balaidos would put Madrid three points clear of Barcelona at the top of the table before the season finale on Sunday. And boy, has that plan worked out perfectly.

Thanks to Zidane's constant rotation and a new role as a centre-forward, Ronaldo seems fully fit as the season reaches its decisive stages. The ball went through the legs of defender Gustavo Cabral and gave goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez no chance. It was deadly finishing of the highest quality. This took him past 1960s England striker Jimmy Greaves to become the top scorer of all time across Europe's top leagues. This was all about ensuring Ronaldo and his side remain on course for the title.

Celta put up a courageous fight in this rearranged fixture, even when reduced to 10 men for the final 30 minutes, but in the end Real proved too strong and now require just one point from their trip to Malaga on Sunday.

This was Zidane's best available Gala XI, with nobody rested or rotated.

Zinedine Zidane: "The Celta team that will play in Vigo are going to come out as professionals, as they have to".
