Zinedine Zidane calm with Real Madrid one point away from title

Zinedine Zidane calm with Real Madrid one point away from title

The French manager's Galacticos are now 3 points ahead of Luis Enrique's Catalan giants with just one game of the league calendar remaining, influencing Zidane into hailing the vital scalp against Célticos as an "important" conquest, whilst admitting that "difficulties" still remain against Malaga in the season's finale on Sunday at La Rosaleda.

But Barcelona have been in this position before, needing a win and a slip-up from league leaders.

While comparisons distract from the spectacle of watching two of the greatest ever footballers in action, we couldn't help but see how the two compare in front of goal in recent years.

Real Madrid defeated Celta Vigo 4-1 at the Balaidos on Thursday and are two games away from a feat it hasn't achieved in nearly six decades: Winning the Champions League and La Liga in the same year. "We'll have to play a mean game".

Sergi Roberto returns from suspension and will start at right-back instead of Lucas Digne, with Barca at full strength in midfield and attack for their last Liga game of the season.

Finally, Real Sociedad need to win in Vigo and hope that either Athletic or Villarreal slip up in order to move into the top-six.

Eibar lost 1-0 at Atletico in their last away game and were also beaten at home by Sporting Gijon (1-0 again) last weekend.

FDNY: Fire that broke out at Manhattan synagogue under control
An eyewitness corroborated the report, telling fire officials he saw three people fleeing the synagogue as the fire began. The building was built in 1850, originally as a Baptist church, but then sold to a Jewish congregation 35 years later.

Malaga are coached by Michel, a Madrid symbol in his playing days after coming through the youth system at Real and a man who said after beating Barca in La Liga last month: "Real Madrid will be the champions, but a Malaga man from Real Madrid has lent them a hand".

Who will win the battle for the Premier League golden boot?

Celta players loudly complained, and there were more complaints a few moments later when Ronaldo fell inside the other box in an apparent flop - but was not shown a yellow card that would have suspended him from the final round. "Our form in La Liga is not good, and now after the defeat against Manchester United [in the Europa League] we must change this and concentrate".

"Brazil are doing very good".

However Juve could be champions before they even play if Roma lose and Fiorentina do not win. "The team was not flawless but the players gave me good things".

"I really hope I can score a goal and give Barca the league", Ramirez told BEIN television.

Where Harry Kane does hold an advantage over the former Real Madrid forward is his fortune in being played up front very earlier in his career.
