Watch: Stoppage-time Cristiano Ronaldo golazo could prove crucial in La Liga title chase

The Spanish league title will come down to the final two games of the season. After 36 rounds, Atlético Madrid, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona — in that order — still have a chance to win La Liga.

His Real team down by one against Valencia in stoppage time, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brilliantly improvised goal to ensure his team is still in the hunt. On a waist-high cross from Ángel di María on the left flank, Ronaldo stabbed at the ball with the bottom of his foot and sent it past goalkeeper Diego Alves.

Watch Ronaldo's golazo here:

Both Atlético and Real are still in the hunt for league and European titles, and Real could still win the treble after winning the Copa del Rey earlier this spring. Real has three league matches remaining, while Atléti and Barça both have two — including a final-day showdown between them at Camp Nou.

Here are all three teams' remaining schedules:

• Atlético Madrid (currently 88 points, plus-51 goal difference) — May 10 vs. Málaga, May 17 at Barcelona.

• FC Barcelona (85 points, plus-67) — May 10 at Elche, May 17 vs. Atlético Madrid.

• Real Madrid (83 points, plus-66) — May 7 at Real Valladolid, May 10 at Celta de Vigo, May 17 vs. Espanyol.

So Atlético could finish with 94 points in the standings if it wins out, while Real has a maximum of 92 points and Barça could finish with 91.

The first tiebreaker in La Liga is head-to-head record, followed by goal difference. Atlético and Barça played to a scoreless draw in their first meeting this season, while Real is at a disadvantage to both Barça and Atlético head-to-head.
