Ronaldo leads Real to brink of La Liga title

1:46 pm on 30 April 2012

Cristiano Ronaldo struck his 43rd league goal of the campaign to set Real Madrid on their way to a 3-nil home win over Sevilla this morning that put them within a whisker of a first La Liga title in four years.

It was a much-needed return to winning ways for Jose Mourinho's side after the shock of Wednesday's Champions League semi-final elimination by Bayern Munich and they could clinch the Spanish title later on Sunday if second-placed Barcelona lose at Rayo Vallecano.
