Real Madrid beat Sevilla 4-1 to remain favourites in the race to win the LaLiga title, but the score is somewhat deceiving, since it took a series of fine saves by Keylor Navas in the first half to keep Real Madrid 2-0 up, before finishing the game off in the second half.
Navas has been, and still is, fundamental. It was a deserved win. We started the game very well and then Keylor was very good
Zinedine Zidane told reporters after the game, having seen his team earn three more points, against a side that many expected to ‘hurt’ Real Madrid.
It is not easy to win LaLiga. Each day we are getting closer and with two games left we are going to continue in the same vein. We are going to play in Vigo and we will face it up in the same way
the French coach said, referring to Wednesday’s game, which, the way things are the moment, could give Real Madrid the title.
The Blancos have 87 points, as many as Barcelona, but they have two games remaining, the one at Balaidos and the last one at Malaga, on Sunday. Four points in these two games, that’s what they need, to secure the title.
