Madrid a draw away from Spanish title after win over Celta

  • Isco Real Madrid Gareth Bale

Cristiano Ronaldo insists he is happy with his reduced role at Real Madrid, who "are the best and want to be champions".

Isco added: "We have come through another final and now we just have one final push at La Rosaleda, which will be just as tough as this game".

There was something horribly familiar about the game at Balaidos, the goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, the controversial red card for Iago Aspas, the debatable refereeing decisions as los Blancos moved three points clear. Their third and last remaining game is the Champions League final against Juventus. "The boss has managed things very well this year". I am doing well and helping the team with goals at the moment. Besides their La Liga fixture at the Bernabeu earlier in the season, the two sides met in the quarterfinal of the Copa del Rey, of which Real were knocked out over the course of two legs.

They had a penalty appeal waived away before the break when Raphael Varane handled inside his own area, but they found themselves 2-0 down three minutes after the restart via a deadly Real counter. "We're happy with that, but we're only thinking about tomorrow's match and he'll not travel to Vigo".

Being that this year's final is in Bale's hometown of Cardiff, the Welsh captain is obviously desperate to start against Juve, yet many of his teammates would prefer to see Isco start ahead of the Welshman. We know we have to keep going until the end. "Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lucas Vazquez will play if they have to".

Celta refused to lie down and got a goal back in slightly fortuitous circumstances when John Guidetti's shot got a significant deflection of Ramos to reduce the deficit in the 69th minute.

Hopes of a comeback lasted little more than a minute before Benzema turned home a Marcelo cross from close range to make the score 3-1 to Real.

Ronaldo was fantastic, even though he should have had a hat trick, missing a sitter in the second half. Here is how to watch a live stream online with TV, time information.
