Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has asked about China - Scolari

Despite's Ronaldo's impressive run, Madrid trails Barcelona by 15 points after 29 matches.

After putting Chelsea to the sword in the Champions League midweek, Messi scored for the sixth game in a row against Athletic at the Camp Nou to propel Barca closer to the domestic title.

Asensio also backed coach Zinedine Zidane to continue at the Bernabeu past the summer, praising the way he had guided the team through rocky spells earlier this season.

Bale is not a sad player at Real Madrid. We have to keep going, follow step by step, first wait for the opponent and, above all, we have to be humble as we have been with PSG.

He had scored just one of his first 48 shots at goal in La Liga, a late victor in a 2-1 win at Getafe on Oct 14.

Messi training for Argentina this week.

The team sealed their place in the top flight last June in front of their own fans with a goalless draw against Real Zaragoza. I played for fun, for a joke, but in my mind I think that potential started in Manchester, that's when I started to believe.

That takes Ronaldo's season goal tally to 37, thus making him the top goalscorer across all five of Europe's top leagues.

The Portuguese restored his side's lead at the start of the second half by racing on to a through ball from Karim Benzema and hammering it in off the crossbar.

Ronaldo hits his hat-trick on 64th minute when he lashed on to a rebound after the keeper stopped Benzema's shot. "I also dedicate it to my four children, that's another record, three children in three months", Ronaldo was after he was handed his award by President of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin.

The 45-year-old further stressed that Los Blancos need to get all three points to surpass Atletico Madrid in the table.

Enes Unal's first goal came in the 82nd minute as the Turk headed home following a corner and he then netted the victor in injury time.
