Real Madrid set the bar for La Liga title race with crucial win over Sevilla


Sitting top of La Liga with a two-point cushion is a great feeling – it looked as though it would be a feeling that Real Madrid would be experiencing following their headline match-up with Sevilla on Sunday night.

But, after Vinicius Jr’s stunning match-winner to earn a massive 2-1 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu, Carlo Ancelotti’s men now boast a four-point cushion above the teams looking up at them. Imagine how that feels.

On what was a mammoth occasion in the Spanish top flight, the winners of that heavyweight contest would be guaranteed top spot heading into matchday 16. The losers, on the other hand, would go home bitterly disappointed.

It turned out to be a night for celebration in the Real Madrid camp. It was a tough battle, an even contest and, at times, quite an ugly performance. But, approaching the midway point of the campaign, they now look title favourites with a chasing pack behind them.
