Ronaldo salutes Zidane´s management as Madrid close on LaLiga crown

Nearly as an afterthought, Ronaldo's double on the night took him to 368 goals in league competition for Manchester United and Madrid.

Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lucas Vazquez are all on the brink of suspension, but are still expected to start tonight's tie and Zidane stressed the need to be positive. "We know that they're a good opponent and it'll be hard, just like it was against Sevilla and will be against Malaga".

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

"We played with incredible attitude and personality", said Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane. The win moves Real Madrid up to 90 points - three ahead of Barcelona at the top of the table. Celta who are on 13th position have lost six of their last seven matches and are yet to record a win since they last won against Granada back in April 16.

Barca go into the final round of fixtures having to beat Eibar at the Camp Nou whilst Real Madrid to lose away to Malaga. Its latest game in the European competition was against Atletico Madrid in the semifinals last week, when it advanced to the final on June 3. Celta are rounding off their domestic season with nothing to play for following their deep run in the Europa League where only a missed last-second chance at the Old Trafford stood between them and a historic qualification to the final. "Perhaps in scoring four goals we were too much for Sevilla, but we had a great second half", he said. "We know it will be a hard game, but we are going to try and play at 100 percent to win it".

The two teams are in very different points in their respective seasons.

Three quick thoughts from Real Madrid's 4-1 La Liga win over Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Wednesday night.

"The boss has managed things very well this year", he told reporters. A loss would open the door for Barcelona to seize the title with a win, as Barcelona has the head-to-head tiebreaker by virtue of Lionel Messi's heroics in El Clasico.
