Zidane hails big game Ronaldo as he strikes again

Zidane hails big game Ronaldo as he strikes again

"This team has a lot of resources and what I like the most is the character we always show", Zidane told reporters.

Real Madrid defender Nacho has been given the all-clear to play against Celta Vigo on Wednesday night (17 May) after the Appeal Committee of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) rescinded his suspension.

However, crucially Zidane's side hold a match in hand, which leaves little margin for error at Balaidos if they are to beat their fierce rivals to the title on the final round of La Liga fixtures which will see Real travel to Malaga on Sunday.

I think that Real will not have problems with Celta, who, although she will try to resist, must ultimately lose. "Nobody is speaking about that in the dressing room. We're a better team when he plays", he said ahead of last weekend's game against Sevilla. We're not going to relax. Should the ill-feeling translate to the pitch it can surely only help Celta, and even Barcelona, with Ronaldo, Isco and Lucas Vazquez all one yellow card away from missing the final game against Malaga. Four points in their last two remaining La Liga games guarantee their 33rd La Liga title. "He's just got something, he's different".

Meanwhile, if they draw, they would need to win on the final day, or failing that, match whatever Barcelona do. This is the first of the three finals until the end of the season to win the double: Liga and Champions League.




But Barça still has a postponed game to play.

However, there were nervous moments around the Santiago Bernabeu when Stefan Jovetic brought Sevilla back into the game after Nacho's quickly taken free-kick and Ronaldo's 400th goal for Madrid had given the hosts' a 2-0 half-time lead.

Atletico Madrid secured third place and an automatic spot in next season's Champions League with a 1-1 draw at Real Betis, while Sevilla guaranteed fourth place and a chance to reach the European competition through the playoffs.

"We're in good physical shape and are focused", added Zidane.

Forward Gareth Bale is still out with a calf injury, while centre-back Pepe, right-back Dani Carvajal and attacking midfielder James Rodriguez are also injured. "We are giving our absolute all in every game, every move, giving everything".
