Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was delighted with his brace in victory at Celta Vigo last night.

Three points is the gap going into the final weekend yet it's not just on the pitch where Barcelona are lagging behind Real Madrid it's off it too. It's hard because they are a good team.

"Malaga is a good team, but we are Real Madrid and we have to show that we are the better team and that we want to be the champions", Ronaldo said. "We know we have to keep going until the end".

"He is proving that he is firing on all cylinders as we enter the final throws of the season, just as the rest of the squad are".
