VALLADOLID, Spain -- Real Madrids Spanish title ambitions are all but over after a late equalizer by relegation-struggler Real Valladolid secured a 1-1 draw on Wednesday. Travis Sanheim Jersey . Madrid lost Cristiano Ronaldo to injury early in the match and failed to create any clear scoring chances after the Portugal forwards exit. His team now trails city and Champions League final rival Atletico Madrid by four points with two games to play. Madrid led through Sergio Ramos 35th-minute free kick, but the visitors sat back too deep in the closing stages. With Ronaldo on the sidelines encouraging his teammates, Madrid ultimately buckled after an 85th-minute corner kick. Humberto Ososrio headed home a deserved equalizer -- and an important goal in Valladolids bid to avoid relegation. "Its clear, no?" Ramos told Canal Plus when asked if Madrids title hopes were over. "Its a shame, since we fought hard. Against a team fighting relegation its always difficult." Atletico leads with 88 points, Barcelona has 85 points and Madrid is third with 84. Atletico can secure the title on Sunday with a victory against Malaga if Barcelona fails to win at Elche. Atletico travels to Barcelona on the final match day. Ronaldo seemed to pull up clutching his right leg following a long run through Valladolids half moments before being substituted for Alvaro Morata. The Portugal forward had recently returned from a left leg injury. With Ronaldo unavailable for free kicks, Ramos stepped up to curl a swooping right-footed shot over the defensive wall and under the bar past goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez for the Madrid defenders fifth goal in four games. Madrid, the record 32-time domestic champion, failed to conjure up any more concrete scoring chances, with Angel Di Maria and Morata coming closest with Jimenez standing up to the few challenges. "We had the game controlled. We didnt have the mental energy to finish these games. There were mistakes in these games" said Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, whose team recorded back-to-back league draws after routing Bayern Munich to reach the Champions League final. "Its going to be very difficult" to win the title, Ancelotti added. As the Copa del Rey champion, Madrids hopes of an elusive treble look to have been dashed. Ancelotti will now have to decide whether to play Ronaldo in the final two games or save the 50-goal marksman for the Champions League final against Atletico on May 24. The draw moved Valladolid up to 16th in the 20-team league.

Taylor Leier Jersey . Bayern winger Franck Ribery marked his league return after recovering from a cracked rib by scoring two goals and setting up two more as the league leaders inflicted the heaviest home defeat on Bremen in the Bundesliga. . Now comes an off-season of questions about manager Matt Williams decisions and a handful of key roster choices, including what to do about Ryan Zimmerman, whether to sign Jordan Zimmermann and Ian Desmond to long-term deals, and how to upgrade an offence that fell flat in October.MONTREAL — Eric Comrie is giving head coach Benoit Groulx a lot to mull over as Canadas world junior championship progresses.Comrie made 17 saves to earn the shutout in Canadas 4-0 defeat of Germany on Saturday at the Bell Centre in Montreal.Groulx now has two potential starting goaltenders — Comrie and Zach Fucale — who have each earned a shutout in Canadas first two games of the tournament. Fucale stopped all 12 shots he faced versus Slovakia on Friday before Comries performance against the Germans.He was good tonight, said Groulx of Comrie. Hes a very well-structured goalie. He competes hard, he was sound, and he feels very at ease on the ice. I liked his game a lot tonight, and obviously its going to be a tough decision that we have to make.He made key saves tonight, and hes playing with a lot of confidence. He made our decision more difficult.As Canada advances in the tournament, its opposition will become increasingly skilled. After games against Slovakia and Germany where Fucale and Comrie faced few shots — and many of them not terribly difficult — the Canadians take on defending-champions Finland and then the United States to wrap up preliminary play.Comrie and Fucale are both 19-year-olds with similar builds — they are the same height, but Comrie weighs slightly less. Comrie, who currently plays for the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League, was drafted 59th overall in the 2013 NHL entry draft by the Winnipeg Jets. Fucale, recently traded to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was chosen by the Montreal Canadiens 36th overall the same year.Although both goaltenders are fighting for a chance to lead Canada to its first gold medal at the juniors in six years, Comrie doesnt feel too much pressure as he competes with Fucale for top spot in the crease.Im just going out there and having fun, and playing in the moment, said Comrie, who was given the game puck by teammate Josh Morrissey on Saturday. If you think of it as a job interview, its not going to go so well. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play in front of this crowd. Im just so excited to be on this team.Its a dream come true. Were both going for a gold medal, it doesnt matter whos playing.Comries WHL statistics this year — namely his save percentage and goal-againnst-average — are better than Fucales, overall. Scott Laughton Jersey. . More importantly at this stage in the tournament, however, Canadas goaltenders have both shown they can compete on the world stage by stopping all the shots theyve faced so far.When you go into a tournament, you want to see how they play, how they react, and if one goalie is going to separate himself from the other one, said Groulx. Obviously, both of them have been very good.Groulxs first decision will be to name the next starting goalie when Canada welcomes the Finns to the Bell Centre on Monday. The Canadians have an off-day on Sunday.We want to sleep on it, and tomorrow well watch the game (against Germany), have meetings with our staff, and see where we go with that.Against the Germans on Saturday, Comrie stopped four shots in the first period, 10 shots in the second — Canadas weakest 20 minutes — and another three in the third en route to the shutout.Perhaps his biggest save came with less than five minutes remaining in the second period. With Canada ahead 2-0 and Samuel Morin in the penalty box for tripping, German defenceman Tim Bender caught Canada on a line change, and sent forward Marc Michaelis on a breakaway with a gorgeous stretch pass the length of the hockey rink.Michaelis tried to beat Comrie with a wrist shot blocker-side, but the Canadian netminder never lost sight of the puck.It was a good pass, said Comrie. He came in, shot on the ice. I dropped, made the save, and covered it up. Thats about it.Comries teammates think the goaltender battle between Comrie and Fucale is nothing but good news for Canada going forward.When you have two goalies with confidence going into the next game, theres not much more you can ask for, said defenceman Shea Theodore. Theyre both good goalies and theyre playing real hot right now.Added captain Curtis Lazar: Were comfortable with whatever goalie is in our net. Eric and Zach do a great job for us back there and were going to need that to continue.Notes: Germany coach Pat Cortina was born in Montreal. … Last year, Canada opened its tournament with a 7-2 victory over the Germans. … The tournament-favourite Canadians are undefeated (13-0) all-time against the Germans at the world juniors, outscoring them 71-18. … Germany is ranked 13th in the world.
