CRISTIANO RONALDO’S 48th goal of another remarkable season set Real Madrid on the way to a battling 2-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano.

La Liga leaders Barcelona eased to a 4-0 win over struggling Almeria earlier on Wednesday and Real endured a far more testing encounter against their tireless near-neighbours.

Rayo attacked with verve and intelligence as they enjoyed the better of the first half and, although Real improved after the interval, the prolific form showcased during Sunday’s 9-1 demolition of Granada eluded them.

Ronaldo netted a remarkable five times in that game, but his solitary 68th-minute header here was arguably of greater importance in terms of the title race. Incredibly, it was his 300th competitive goal for the club in 288 appearances.

The Ballon d’Or holder turned provider for the impressive James Rodriguez to make the points safe with 17 minutes left – ensuring Real remain four points behind Barca and five ahead of reigning champions Atletico Madrid in third.
