Read Madrid and Sevilla's Sunday game had Real as the winner with 4-1 score. Apart from leading the race for the La Liga title, the team has also etched its name as the first team to have scored first in 62 consecutive games. But Sevilla also put up a great fight for the match that was held at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid's winning score of 4-1 and a Cristiano Ronaldo's brace on Sunday had the team leading the race for the La Liga title, Soccer Laduma reported. Toni Kroos and Nacho's goals and Cristiano Ronaldo brace led Real to win the game. But, it was surely not a comfortable one even though Sevilla was injury depleted.
Notably, Real did not waste time once the game started and tightened its grip over the Liga title. And, even before Sevilla could have their wall in place, Nacho had already netted the first goal. And, the opportunist free kick of Nacho, marked Real's name in history as the first side to score in 62 consecutive games in Europe's big five leagues. Within another few minutes and from a close range, Cristiano Ronaldo also slid home, just after James Rodriguez's shot.
According to reports from ESPN, Sevilla saw Mudo Vazquez leaving the ground, soon after warm up and Michael Krohn-Dehli had to be called in. Notably, Sunday's match was Michael Krohn-Dehli's first match post recovery from a fractured kneecap.
Well, Sevilla also got a lot of opportunities, but Real out weighted their attempts. However it was in the 19th minute that Sevilla got its first goal. The team was mostly on its back foot but it could have seen another goal on the 32nd minute, but Jovetic's throw crashed the crossbar and not the goal post.
