MADRID (AFP) - Real Madrid's La Liga title hopes were all but ended as they conceded five minutes from time to draw 1-1 away to Valladolid on Wednesday.

Sergio Ramos' free-kick had given Madrid the lead 10 minutes before half-time, but Humberto Osorio's late header rounded off a horrible evening for the visitors as Cristiano Ronaldo also hobbled off with an injury in the first 10 minutes.

The draw leaves Real four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid and a point adrift of Barcelona with two games to play.
