FT: Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid

It's advantage Real Madrid in the La Liga race, as they go three points clear at the top of La Liga. They need a draw away to Malaga to win the title and Barcelona's result against Eibar will not matter. Cristiano Ronaldo produced yet another brace, although there were some controversial refereeing moments, as Iago Aspas was harshly sent off.
...
90+2' Celta earn a corner after Pape Chiekh's shot is deflected out. Cabral meets the delivery at the near post, but the chance goes a-begging. Celta recycle the ball and send a low cross to Beauvue, but Danilo stretches out a leg to intercept.
...
90' 3 minutes of injury time
...
88' Celta shoot themselves in the foot, giving the ball on the edge of the box, with Toni Kroos showing great composure to dummy Mallo before calmly slotting the ball past Alvarez. Celta Vigo 1-4 Real Madrid
...
88' GOOOAL TONI KROOS!
...
87' WHAT A SAVE! Lucas Vazquez is put through on the right wing, and Alvarez makes another point blank save!
...
87' Guidetti is replaced by Beauvue
...
86' HANDBAGS! Ramos and Hernandez get into a bit of a shoving contest, with Marcelo intervening to calm things down.
...
85' WHAT A SAVE! Modric produces an incredible backheel in the box and Benzema has the goal at his mercy, but Alvarez comes out to deny him.
...
84' Ronaldo comes off to applause from the away fans and jeers from the rest of the Balaidos as Marco Asensio comes on in his stead. Lucas Vazquez also replaces Isco.
...
82' Real Madrid have killed the game in the last few minutes, passing the ball around in midfield as Celta Vigo struggle to win the ball back.
...
80' Pione Sisto is replaced by Pape Cheikh
...
77' Danilo is writhing about in agony as Pablo Hernandez absolutely clatters into him as Madrid attack. The referee waves play on, with Madrid's foray forward coming to nothing. Play is stopped as both players receive treatment.
...
75' WHAT A TERRIBLE MISS! Ronaldo and Benzema exchange a 1-2 on the edge of the box, with the return falling to the Portuguese star in acres of space. He tries to take the mickey and dallies, before shooting wide of goal with it at his mercy.
...
74' Jonny is lucky to escape a yellow card as he tugged Danilo's shirt to prevent a corner, but the referee keeps his cards in his pocket - I'm sure he wants to leave Balaidos unharmed...

Moments later, Wass shoots from a narrow angle on the right well wide of goal.
...
73' Mallo goes into the book for grabbing Benzema from behind as they contested for a pass.
...
72' Jozabed is replaced by Marcelo Diaz for Celta Vigo
...
71' Mateo Kovacic comes on to replace Casemiro
...
70' Ronaldo leads a foray forward, before Benzema and Marcelo exchange a great 1-2 in the box, with the Frenchman tapping home into an empty net from Marcelo's low cross into the box and silence the Balaidos. Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid
...
70' GOOOAAAL KARIM BENZEMA!
...
69' Isco gives the ball away with a poor touch, and Sisto pounces, before spreading it to Guidetti on the edge of the box. He hammers a low drive at goal that deflects off Ramos and loops over Navas and into the net! Game on! Celta Vigo 1-2 Real Madrid 
...
69' GOOOAL JOHN GUIDETTI!
...
68' WHAT A SAVE!! Jonny runs into the edge of the box with a jinking run, laying the ball off to Wass, who wrong footed Marcelo in the box and had the goal at his mercy only for Navas to make a crucial save!
...
66' Hugo Mallo dives on the wings, and Guidetti goes into the book for dissent - the referee has lost control of this game.
...
65' Bizarre stuff at the Balaidos as Berizzo's assistant walks across the pitch and is sent off.
...
64' Ronaldo goes down in the box (some would call that a dive) and does not get a yellow card, with the referee then booking Jonny for dissent as the Balaidos goes mad!
...
62' Ramos clatters Aspas from behind in the box, and the referee incorrectly books Aspas for diving - controversial stuff at the Balaidos, and Catalonia is sure to be livid!
...
62' SECOND YELLOW CARD - RED CARD - IAGO ASPAS!
...
61' Oh dear! Casemiro sends a great through ball to Danilo on the right wing, but the Portuguese fullback strangely pulls up despit having run clear of his defence. He could have collected the ball in the box if he had continued.
...
18 - Isco Alarcon has been involved in more goals than any other midfielder in La Liga this season (10 goals and eight assists)
...
55' ALMOST! Ronaldo sets off on yet another counter-attack and spreads it wide to Isco who is free on the right channel, but the Spaniard's return pass to the Portuguese star charging through is intercepted. Karim Benzema making up the yards at the far post offers an exceptionally Gallic sigh of despair
...
54' Jonny is lucky to escape a yellow card as he hammers a ball away in frustration after failing to control Sisto's chip into the box. Celta Vigo have dominated the play for much of the game, but Ronaldo is Ronaldo - and he is the difference tonight.
...
51' Guidetti is quite offside when Mallo sends a clever ball into the box - it won't be long before Beauvue replaces him, although that's hardly what I would call an upgrade.
...
48' As soon as Guidetti loses the ball, Real Madrid counter, and Isco does brilliantly to ride two challenges and send a gorgeous through ball to Ronaldo on the left channel. He takes the ball in his stride and shoots first time past Alvarez into the near post with his left foot. Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid.
...
48' GOAAL CRISTIANO RONALDOOO!!!
...
47' WHAT A CHANCE! Guidetti makes a mess of a brilliant chest down in the box and Celta lose a great chance.
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! Celta Vigo get us underway in the second half, kicking off in their home blue kit, from right to left.
...
The players are back out of the tunnel and kickoff in the second half is moments away!
...
Just a reminder then, that Cristiano Ronaldo is now the all-time leading goal-scorer in Europe's Top 5 Leagues, with 367 goals, going past Jimmy Greaves on 366 goals.
