BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Javier Hernandez scored twice as Real Madrid fought back for a thrilling 4-2 win at Celta Vigo on Sunday to keep the pressure on Spanish league leader Barcelona.

Four days after Hernandez's late goal put Madrid into the Champions League semifinals, the Mexico striker struck a brace to help an injury-depleted Madrid hold off Celta's vigorous challenge and stay two points behind Barcelona with five rounds left.

Celta forward Manuel "Nolito" Agudo scored in the ninth minute to start a five-goal flurry in the first half.
