La Liga: Nacho’s goal keeps Real Madrid alive in title race- Real Madrid ensured the La Liga title race will go to the final day as Nacho’s second-half goal earned a narrow victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Defending champions Real remain two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid with one game remaining.

However, Luis Suarez scored a late winner to leave the title in the hands of their city rivals.

Zinedine Zidane’s side must now hope Atletico slip up against Real Valladolid in their final match next Sunday.

Meanwhile, Barcelona’s title hopes were ended as Ronald Koeman’s side lost 2-1 at home to Celta Vigo, despite Lionel Messi’s first half opener.
