Cristiano Ronaldo scored two long-range goals to help Real Madrid rout Osasuna 4-0 on Saturday and stay in the Spanish league title chase while resting several first-choice players for its European clash at Bayern Munich.
With Gareth Bale recovering from the flu and Karim Benzema on the bench, all of Madrid's attack went through Ronaldo on the left flank.
And the Ballon d'Or winner didn't disappoint by unleashing two similar blasts after cutting inside to put the ball on his right boot to take his league-leading tally to 30 goals through 35 rounds.
Madrid provisionally closed to within three points of leader Atletico Madrid.
Madrid visits Bayern on Tuesday in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal. Madrid won the first leg 1-0.
