Real Review - Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid

Real Review - Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid

Real Madrid's La Liga season continued with a win against Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Wednesday.

A point against Malaga on Sunday and Real Madrid will be crowned La Liga champions ahead of Barcelona following Wednesday 4-1 win at Celta Vigo, Los Blancos' game in hand.

In scoring his 367th goal in Europe's top-five leagues, Cristiano Ronaldo not only put Real ahead after 10 minutes the Portuguese forward beat the previous record set in 1971 by former England striker Jimmy Greaves - most importantly this settled any nerves.

Ronaldo added the second after the break before John Guidetti pulled one back for Celtic Vigo, who had minutes earlier been reduced to 10 men when Iago Aspas was sent off for collecting his second yellow card.

Celta hope wasn't restored for long though, Karim Benzema soon added Real's third and Toni Kroos - coming after Ronaldo missed a simple chance for his hat trick - made it back-to-back 4-1 victories.

Since the Clásico defeat to Barcelona last month Real haven't look back as our march towards the title has been relentless - if we can go one final time against Malaga on Sunday that'll be that.
