Los Blancos will win La Liga if they are victorious against mid-table Malaga in their final game of the season on Sunday (May 21). It's hard because they are a good team.
"Malaga is a good team, but we are Real Madrid and we have to show that we are the better team and that we want to be the champions", Ronaldo said. We also have a very good and young squad.
Real Madrid coach will take his side to Malaga on the back of five consecutive league wins and knowing that Malaga are coached by former Real Madrid legend, Michel Gonzalez.

In a odd twist of fate, Real Madrid will be forced to pay Sunday's opponents Malaga €1m if they win La Liga this weekend.
"The first half was end to end and that doesn't suit us, we were much better with the ball in the second and we played a little better", added Zidane. "You have to be positive". "The boss has managed things very well this year".
"I'm feeling well, everything will be decided this weekend and I'm doing well, scoring goals and helping the team. So I am happy".

I opened the scoring and scored the second, this was important. A subsequent victory against Juventus in the Champions League final on June 3 would give Madrid its first European double since the 1957-58 season.
"The most hard part is still to come even though we're getting closer (to the title) every day", Zidane told reporters. It also won a Champions League and La Liga double in 2011.
Zidane was in no mood to celebrate just yet either at his postmatch news conference, admitting he was "happy" but "tired" as his team moved to within a point of the title.
