Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane hailed Cristiano Ronaldo's capacity to deliver when his side needs him most in big games after the Portuguese netted twice in Sunday's 4-1 rout of Sevilla.
Victory moved Madrid one step closer to a first La Liga title as they now need just four points from their final two games at Celta Vigo and Malaga to see off Barcelona's challenge.

However, Real faced nervous moments when Stefan Jovetic brought Sevilla back into the game after Nacho's quickly taken free-kick and Ronaldo's 400th goal for Madrid had given the hosts' a 2-0 half-time lead.
Ronaldo restored Madrid's two-goal lead before Toni Kroos rounded off the scoring.
Zidane admitted the 32-year-old simply cannot be kept out of the limelight.
"What can I tell you? He has something. He's different," Zidane said.
"More than the goals is what he's done up to now. He's always there in the decisive moments," he added.
