Swing Out Sister back to PH this April Yanson buses to keep operating despite legal battle “We played with incredible attitude and personality,” said Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.Ronaldo was starting his first La Liga game away from home for nearly two months as in contrast to recent weeks, Zidane didn’t rotate his starting XI.The Frenchman went with the same side that withstood an Atletico Madrid revival to book their place in the Champions League final a week ago.And he was rewarded early on as Marcelo fed Isco and after he was dispossessed on the edge of the area, Ronaldo smashed the loose ball high into the net.“He has managed things very well,” Ronaldo added on Zidane.ADVERTISEMENT “I feel good. Everything is decided in the final weeks of the season and I am doing well. I am scoring goals and helping the team.”Celta have now lost eight of their last nine La Liga games having concentrated on their run to the Europa League semi-finals that was ended by Manchester United last week.However, they eliminated Madrid from the Copa del Rey earlier this season and put the European champions to the test once more.Daniel Wass stung the palms of Keylor Navas with a fiercely struck free-kick before Aspas fired just wide twice in quick succession.And Celta also had a penalty appeal waived away before the break when Raphael Varane handled inside his own area.“We scored early and then had 20 difficult minutes,” added Zidane.“In the second-half we controlled the game more because the first-half it was end-to-end which isn’t our game.”Having soaked up that pressure, a deadly Real counter-attack doubled their advantage just three minutes into the second period.Isco was again the provider as he surged through the midfield before feeding Ronaldo to finish off the inside of the post.More controversy ensued moments later when referee Juan Martinez Munera showed Aspas a second yellow card for diving when he appeared to have been tripped by Sergio Ramos inside the area.

Spain, who lost to Slovakia on Thursday, are now second on goal difference in Group C on six points from three games, with Ukraine, also on six points, in third.Slovakia’s 3-1 away win at Belarus left them top with nine points from three.Silva got the opener when he latched on to an uncharacteristic long ball out of defence after 27 minutes. The 21-year-old Valencia striker Alcacer doubled the tally with his third goal in three games for Spain just before half-time. Costa, in his seventh match for Spain had missed a hatful on the night before he swivelled to fire home from close range to the visible relief of the whole team.“Diego wanted to pay us back with goals for the suppport we’ve given him. He feels good in the group, but I told him at half-time he was thinking too much about it (getting a first goal) so I just told him to keep calm,” coach Del Bosque said after the game.The Brazilian-born Costa has been on fire in England with nine Premier League goals for Chelsea this season, but that was his first goal in seven for Spain.Bernat, a Bayern Munich left-back, will also have given Spain reason to smile as a younger generation emerges to refresh their ageing squad.Eyebrows were raised before tha game when Spain handler Vicente Del Bosque dropped the under-performing ‘keeper Iker Casillas, the 33-year-old with whom Spain won Euro 2008 and 2012 plus the 2010 World Cup, in favour of Manchester United stopper David de Gea.For his part de Gea had little to do, but was assured on the few occasions he was called upon.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
