Ronaldo could take Madrid to brink of title in Celta Vigo

A win on Wednesday will go a long way to securing the La Liga title

The playmaker is expected to leave Los Blancos at the end of this season after falling down the pecking order at the club.

After seeing a delicately chipped effort come off the bar, Jovetic halved the deficit three minutes before half-time with a neat finish from outside the box.

Ronaldo added to the lead in the 23rd and scored again in the 78th after Stevan Jovetic had pulled Sevilla closer with a goal early in the second half.

His 25 goals in 17 games against Sevilla are also more than he has scored against any other Spanish opponent.

The £3.85million five-bedroom house in Trafford has always been up for sale and the hunt is on for a new home in Pozuelo de Alarcon just 20 minutes west out of Madrid where he will be neighbours with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale while finally becoming Real Madrid's first choice goalkeeper.

Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Isco and James Rodriguez are all superb ball players, capable of maintaining possession and creating chances with their precise passing.

Only Osasuna have an excuse, as financial issues stopped them assembling a squad capably of competing among the best. When coach Zinedine Zidane chose to take him off the pitch, the Colombian midfielder received an standing ovation from the fans at the Bernabeu as he bid farewell to the crowd. The ball was lost, Sevilla countered and none of Real's midfielders had shown the presence of mind to drop back and cover for Ramos, leaving them outnumbered at the back.

The title race will go to the wire. Los Blancos defeated Sevilla 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in a ruthless display that owed more to their clinical finishing than a polished performance.

The two sides are equal on 87 points with Barcelona leading the standings on their head-to-head record although Real has a game in hand against Celta Vigo next week and need only four points from its final two matches to take the title. He is so important to the team's structure that Zidane can not afford to be without him. "We fully deserved the victory".

"It was a good pass from Kroos, he sees the gap and he puts it in", Zidane said of Ronaldo's second. What we have to do is rest and focus on what we can do, which is to prepare for Sunday's match.
