Ronaldo sensational as Madrid soar past Osasuna

Two sensational Cristiano Ronaldo strikes sent Real Madrid CF on the way to an emphatic win against CA Osasuna, keeping the pressure on Liga leaders Club Atlético de Madrid.

Real Madrid CF swept aside CA Osasuna 4-0 and kept the pressure on Liga leaders Club Atlético de Madrid courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo showcase.

The Portugal winger scored with two spectacular, near-identical strikes either side of half-time, cutting in from the left and crashing the ball into the top-right corner from 25 metres. They were the irrepressible forward's 29th and 30th goals of the campaign. Headers from Sergio Ramos and Daniel Carvajal wrapped up a Madrid's fourth win on the spin; they have scored 17 without reply in that period.

The Merengues are just three points shy of Atlético, although Diego Simeone's men visit Valencia CF on Sunday in an attempt to double that advantage.

Carlos Vela's penalty proved decisive as Real Sociedad de Fútbol edged past already-relegated Real Betis Balompié. La Real are certain of UEFA Europa League football next term but, five points shy of fourth, still have their eye trained on a UEFA Champions League place.

Adrian Colunga scored the only goal as Getafe CF boosted their survival prospects with a slender win against Málaga CF, a match both sides ended with ten men. Rayo Vallecano de Madrid scored three times after Yasine Brahimi's 52nd-minute red card to see off Granada CF.
