Wednesday's La Liga: Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid - Ronaldo Makes History As Los Blancos Move Closer To Title

Record-breaking Cristiano Ronaldo broke a European record as Real Madrid comfortably defeated 10-man Celta Vigo 4-1 to keep their La Liga title ambitions on course.
Cristiano Ronaldo broke Jimmy Greaves' 46-year European scoring record for most goals in Europe's top five leagues as Real Madrid moved within a point of their first Spanish title since 2012.

Ronaldo, 31, fired Madrid ahead with his 367th goal in one of Europe's top-five leagues, eclipsing the previous mark of 366 goals set by former Tottenham, AC Milan, Chelsea and England striker striker Greaves in 1971.
Ronaldo slotted in a second, his 368th and, even though Celta’s star man Iago Aspas was sent off, John Guidetti managed to make some amends for his late miss at Old Trafford last week with a response after the hour mark, but Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos made sure to protect Real’s three-point haul.

Real will clinch La Liga with a draw at mid-table Malaga on Sunday.
Real took less than 10 minutes to find a breakthrough and it was little surprise that Ronaldo was the man to do it


Rivals Barcelona must win their final game at home to Eibar and hope Zinedine Zidane's side lose.

If the teams finish level on points then defending champions Barca will claim a third-straight title because of their superior head-to-head record.
