The result means Barcelona now need to beat Eibar on Sunday and hope Malaga can upset Madrid, or Los Blancos will secure their first Primera Division title in five seasons. Standing in the way of a first title since 2012 is a Malaga side with little at stake and who are coached by Michel, who spent 14 trophy laden seasons at the Bernabeu.

"We can not play for a draw, we must play our normal game", he said.

A win or a draw in the match postponed from February because of bad weather will move Madrid past Barcelona into first place going into the weekend's final round of matches.

Although Celta Vigo held out for ten minutes they were, eventually, humbled on their own ground, with Real Madrid winning 4-1.

Goal difference would only have come in to play had the two sides' aggregate head-to-head scores been level.

Real Madrid have won their appeal against Nacho's suspension and are subsequently able to play the defender in their crucial LaLiga away match against Celta Vigo on Wednesday.

Ronaldo added to the lead after halftime with a well-placed shot from inside the area after receiving a perfectly timed pass by Francisco "Isco" Alarcon in a breakaway.

"I am scoring goals and helping the team". "It is not usual for me to have a miss like that, but it can happen to human beings who can make mistakes too".

Real Madrid started the game very well, as usual, looking for Sergio's goal.

Just after half-time Celta had their best chance to get back into the game, but John Guidetti's control let him down 8 yards out. Indeed there is much to be done to close the gap, and it must be done right this time. Toni Kroos completed the scoring in the 88th.

Madrid have claimed two Champions League crowns since Isco joined, but they have failed to win La Liga in that time, so none of those extras have yet been paid out.
