Neymar's trick keeps Spanish title race alive

On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 22:00, the rescheduled match of the 21 round of the Spanish Championship will take place, in which at the stadium "Balaydos" in Vigo, the local Celta will play against Real Madrid.

That goal meant Real broke Bayern Munich's European record for scoring in consecutive games as their streak now stretches to 61.

Zidane added, "He's just got something, he's different".

4-1 wins for both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid keeps Spain's big-two neck and neck at the top of the Liga Santander with Barca leading Madrid on goal difference.

This game was originally scheduled for February but had to be postponed due to storm damage at Balaidos, with its rearrangement for the final week of the season creating some extra drama.

"This team has a lot of resources and what I like the most is the character we always show", Zidane told reporters. We [Celta] feel very strong and know what to expect from a great side who are fit and coming off a great week.

Three minutes later, Real doubled their lead as Ronaldo slotted home from close range after James Rodriguez's shot was parried into the Portuguese's path. Sevilla were on the back foot for most of the half but they almost pulled a goal back in the 32nd minute when Jovetic's lob crashed against the crossbar. Quick thinking from Nacho gave Madrid the lead as the defender quickly took a free-kick while everyone else was waiting and beat a surprised Sergio Rico to make it 1-0.

"(Madrid) were a bit desperate, they believed they had a series of advantages if the game was played that day.

Zidane kept regular starters such as Karim Benzema, Casemiro and Luka Modric out of the starting lineup against Sevilla on Sunday, when Madrid won 4-1. His 367th goal came in 460 games, while Greaves - who is now 77 years old and hasn't played professionally since the late 1970's - wrapped up a career with 366 goals in 528 appearances.

Guidetti, who came within inches of sending Celta to Stockholm for the Europa League final, cut through the disappointment with a deft finish from a Pione Sisto assist. Real will hardly need reminding that they could only draw 2-2 at Celta after losing 2-1 at the Bernabeu in January. And in that case, the title would go to Barcelona - having drawn 1-1 with Real at Camp Nou before winning 3-2 at the Bernabeu in that Clasico match.

Madrid wanted to avoid playing Celta so late in the season.
