Ronaldo hits 50th goal of season in Real Madrid win

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 50th goal of the season in Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Malaga.

Gareth Bale limped off after just four minutes with a calf problem while his former Tottenham colleague Luka Modric had to be replaced in the second half after suffering a knee injury, giving coach Carlo Ancelotti serious cause for concern ahead of Wednesday's Champions League return clash with Atletico Madrid.

Real will at least go into that game on the back of a victory as goals from Sergio Ramos, James Rodriguez and Ronaldo cancelled out a reply from Juanmi.

"It was a positive game, it wasn't negative even if we had two problems with Bale and Modric. The game was positive because the side won despite lots of difficulties, injuries, a missed penalty...We fought, everyone really gave everything they could and worked well," said Ancelotti.
