Ronaldo helps Real to 20th win a row

Real Madrid sealed their 20th victory in a row in all competitions as Cristiano Ronaldo scored two more goals in a victory at Almeria.
Real have won every match since 13 September and are four off the world record of Brazilians Coritiba in 2011.
The visitors led 2-1 at half-time with Isco and Gareth Bale scoring either side of Verza's strike for Almeria.
Iker Casillas saved a Verza penalty before Ronaldo's late brace took his season tally to 32 goals in 23 games.
The last time Real Madrid failed to win a match was their 2-1 defeat by Atletico Madrid almost three months ago.
They broke Barcelona's Spanish record of 18 wins in a row on Tuesday against Ludogorets in the Champions League - and few predicted anything other than a comfortable 20th consecutive victory in Friday's trip to Andalusia.
Almeria, who dropped into the bottom three on goal difference with the defeat, had Miguel Rivera in caretaker charge for one game after the sacking of Francisco Javier Rodriguez, with Juan Ignacio Martinez taking over after this match.
It took Carlo Ancelotti's side 34 minutes to take the lead through Isco's fantastic curling effort, the midfielder starting in place of the injured James Rodriguez.

But five minutes later Verza had levelled with a stunning half-volley.
However they trailed at half-time through Gareth Bale's header from Toni Kroos's cross.
