Cristiano Ronaldo has warned his Real Madrid team-mates that the La Liga title is not yet sewn up, despite Los Blancos opening up a 10-point lead over defending champions Barcelona at the weekend.

Ronaldo hit his sixth hat-trick of the season as José Mourinho’s men came from a goal down against Levante to win 4-2 at the Bernabéu on Sunday, a day after Barcelona stumbled to a shock 3-2 by Osasuna on Saturday.

But despite league leaders Real looking well on course to wrap up their first Primera Division title since 2008, Ronaldo has insisted that their campaign is far from over.

“I don’t think it’s done yet, we haven’t wont the league,” said Ronaldo after Sunday’s victory. “There’s still a lot of games to play. We have to continue like this.

“We know that, at the moment, anything can change. We’re playing well but we just have to keep going.

“We’re doing our job and we are focused on playing well every game. The secret is to treat each game like a final and play with confidence in every game until the end of the season.”
