Ronaldo rescues point for Real Madrid

Real Madrid missed the chance to make things slightly less comfortable for Barcelona at the top of the Primera Division standings as they were held 1-1 by relegation-fighting Real Zaragoza at La Romareda

Barcelona's 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo earlier in the evening meant second-placed Madrid could have trimmed their arch rivals' lead to 11 points if they could beat Zaragoza and claim a seventh successive league victory

However, like Barca, they had to settle for just a point with Rodri putting Zaragoza ahead early on before Cristiano Ronaldo levelled things up just before the break with his 28th La Liga goal of the campaign.

Neither side could go on to force a winner in the second half, with Marcelo hitting the post for Madrid and both goalkeepers making a number of vital interventions.
