Real Madrid have one hand on the LaLiga title after last night's victory at Celta Vigo.

Zinedine Zidane's side reclaimed top spot in the table from bitter rivals Barcelona heading into Sunday's final round of fixtures.

Real, who are also looking forward to a Champions League final date with Juventus in Cardiff on June 3rd have a three-point lead on Barca and require only a draw away to Malaga on Sunday to seal their first title in five years.

Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Los Blancos after only 10 minutes and doubled Real's advantage in the 48th minute.

Celta were reduced to ten men when former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas was sent-off in the 62nd minute.

However, John Guidetti managed to pull a goal back for the home side on 69 minutes before Karim Benzema hit Real's third only a minute later.
