Zinedine Zidane Madrid manager warns, 'We have won nothing yet'

Cristiano Ronaldo

Madrid nearly forced a second shortly before the half-hour mark as Toni Kroos played a smart ball over the top to find Isco, whose deflected shot looped up in the air before dipping just wide of the goal.

Shrugging off questions on the futures of James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas, players linked with departures from Madrid by reports in Spain, Zidane said the team were focused on the clash in Vigo.

"We still have one game to go".

However, Portuguese striker Ronaldo, who had matched former Tottenham forward Greaves' achievement with his goal in the 4-1 thrashing of Sevilla, did not care and 10 minutes into Wednesday night's match he nudged the 77-year-old Englishman into second place.

For Real Madrid, the remaining two fixtures are extremely crucial as a minor slip-up can cost them the title.

At Balaidos, the Galician team have only won one of their last nine league clashes with Real Madrid, 2-0 in May 2014 (L8).

Celta arguably had the better of the first-half chances, though, coming close through strikes from John Guidetti and Daniel Wass, the latter of whom sent a fizzing free kick right down the middle.

The result means that Zinedine Zidane's side now need just a point away to Malaga next Sunday in the last game of the season in order to assure this season's league title. His last summer was consumed by helping Portugal reach the Euro 2016 final, only to suffer a debilitating injury in the title game.

Nacho's goal was hotly disputed, though, with furious Sevilla players - who had no time to build a defensive wall or get organised - surrounding the referee in protest. "He has shown that again today, not just with his goals, he worked hard too in defence". A win and a draw will be enough for Los Blancos. But Barça still has a postponed game to play.

Real took the lead against Sevilla through defender Nacho Fernandez's quickly-taken free-kick early on - a goal that saw Zidane's men break Bayern Munich's record after scoring in their 62nd consecutive game. "I'm just being positive".

Barcelona did all they could to keep their hopes of winning La Liga alive in the Canary Islands.

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