Real Madrid a point from title after Celta Vigo win

Real Madrid a point from title after Celta Vigo win

Real simply needs to get a point on Sunday at Malaga to win the league.

"We knew that the three points were the most important thing, but we went out there to play, the win was only a outcome".

"Zidane? He always wins in the end and he's managed us very well".

"We have one game left but today was very important". "I feel good. Everything is decided in the final weeks of the season and I am doing well".

Cristiano Ronaldo has been sensational lately for the capital club as he single handedly demolished Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals and bagged a brace in his last La Liga outing. "I am scoring goals and helping the team". Yet somehow, me missed.

A win or a draw in the match postponed from February because of bad weather will move Madrid past Barcelona into first place going into the weekend's final round of matches.

"We are prepared", Zidane said Tuesday.

Iraq attempts to seize last Daesh positions in Mosul
Sunday's losses came one day after Iraqi forces launched an operation to capture the last Islamic State pocket in western Mosul . The move is an abrupt shift from past instructions that have mostly told civilians to stay in place until the fighting is over.


They have been in rampant form since that defeat, hitting 20 goals in five games through 10 different scorers, demonstrating the devastating attacking power coach Zinedine Zidane has at his disposal. "But the last game maybe will be even more hard than today". Celtistas may well, as the club letter says, "make room for pride and hope" - but even for the most-hardened of supporters, and indeed Barca fans everywhere, turning over the mighty Real Madrid may just be one dream too many.

"They tried to use the media to get the game played, with quite odd proposals like moving to another stadium to play".

Glad to know you're just like us really, Ronny.

"We can not play for a draw, we must play our normal game", he said.

"Celta are a professional team and will go out to win, nothing less".

"The game is of a huge importance, not only for the rival that we are going to face, but also for our own moment", Berizzo said at a press conference.
