The former Manchester United star displayed his Ballon d'Or trophy to home fans before the win, which took Real to top of the table.
"It was a very special day. Because of everything that has happened and because I could show the Ballon d'Or to the fans," said Ronaldo.
"Throughout the year they have really helped to win it. It was a great afternoon and we also won. We will have a good night as leaders and tomorrow we will see what the other teams do," he said. He also talked about the team's good run of form: "We are in a good patch. We are playing well, I am playing well and I want to carry on like this until the end of the season."
He added: "We are playing well, and we feel confident. We have to improve in some areas, but it was a great match. The team looks good; we are getting better all the time. Towards the end of the season I am convinced that things will keep getting better."
