Nobody could ever accuse Real Madrid or Cristiano Ronaldo of going down without a fight.
Having once been 12 points behind Barcelona in the title race, Los Blancos had managed to narrow the gap to just a single point going into the last game of the season.
Barcelona need only to match Madrid's result to win the title, meaning Zinedine Zidane is hoping that the Cataan club slip up.
And of course, with the stakes impossibly high, it was that man Ronaldo who stepped up when his team needed him the most.
Gareth Bale was the driving force behind the strike, charging down the left flank to beat his man and pull the ball back to Karim Benzema.
The Frenchman miscued his shot, but as ever Ronaldo was in the right place at the right time to slot home from close range. The goal was Ronaldo's 50th of the season - and incredibly this is the sixth straight campaign in which he's passed the half century mark. You can check out the landmark goal in the video below.
It looks like Ronaldo's chances of winning the Pichichi, and Madrid's chances of winning the league, are hanging by a thread. Barcelona are currently 1-0 up against Granada thanks to Luis Suarez's strike. That moves the Uruguayan on to 38 for the season, while Ronaldo now has 34.
Ronaldo has now added a second and his 35th of the season with just 25 minutes gone amidst plenty of controversy. The Deportivo home crowd were left jeering and Ronaldo was left cheering after he nodded home from a corner via a deflection off a defender. Deportivo players surrounded the referee and claimed one of their players had been fouled by Gareth Bale in the build up.
Now Luis Suarez has added his second of the match against Granada to all but seal the title for Barcelona, as well as the top scorer prize. The strike was Suarez's 50th of the season.
