Ronaldo ends goal drought with Real equaliser

Written by: Staff

MADRID, Mar 23 (Reuters) Ronaldo ended his goalscoring drought by grabbing a last-gasp equaliser that earned Real Madrid a dramatic 1-1 draw at Real Zaragoza yesterday.

The Brazilian drilled home from 10 metres after pouncing on a loose ball in the area a minute into stoppage time to score his first Primera Liga goal in seven games and cancel out a second-half strike from Argentine forward Diego Milito.

It was Real's first goal in four league games but did not stop them dropping to third in the table, a point behind Osasuna who had earlier notched up their third win in a row with a 2-0 victory at home to struggling Real Sociedad.

Valencia slipped to fourth spot after being held to a 1-1 draw by regional rivals Villarreal.

With nine games left Barcelona, who came from a goal down to beat Getafe 3-1 at home on Tuesday, lead the standings on 67 points, 12 ahead of Osasuna and 13 clear of arch-rivals Real.

Valencia occupy the final Champions League berth a further point back and enjoy a seven-point cushion over Deportivo Coruna who moved up to fifth after a 2-1 win over basement side Malaga -- their first home victory in over three months.
