Cristiano Ronaldo double puts Real Madrid second in La Liga
Sunday 10 March 2013
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to give Real Madrid a 2-1 win at Celta Vigo last night, lifting Jose Mourinho's side into second place in La Liga.
Madrid had the better of the scoring chances despite Mourinho making several changes to his team following a week featuring wins over Barcelona and Manchester United.
Ronaldo was well positioned to score from a loose ball in the 61st minute. Striker Iago Aspas levelled against the run of play two minutes later, but the Portugal forward converted a spot-kick earned by Kaka in the 72nd.
Atletico Madrid dropped to third after losing 1-0 at home to Real Sociedad.
