Real Madrid 4-1 Sevilla

Real Madrid 4-1 Sevilla

That match in hand will be played on Wednesday against a Celta Vigo side who suffered another body blow earlier yesterday when they were beaten 3-1 by Copa del Rey finalists Alaves.

"We began well in a hard, tricky, complicated match, Betis came with hardships of defeats both home and away, and obviously they needed to play a good match at home", he said.

Madrid went 2-0 up early through Nacho Fernandez's quick free kick and Cristiano Ronaldo's close range effort, but Sevilla pulled a deserved goal back just after half-time through Stefan Jovetic's 20-yard curler.

"The good thing is that we are into the final phase very good physically and with everyone very motivated", the Los Blancos coach told the postmatch news conference.

Barca are top of the table on goal difference (77-60) but Madrid have two games remaining to Barca's one.

While the scoreline may suggest it was an easy win, Sevilla did make life hard for the home side and had Keylor Navas not been in such inspired form, the result may well have been different.

Atletico Madrid sealed the third automatic Champions League spot despite only drawing 1-1 at Real Betis and Sevilla were guaranteed fourth spot and a play-off berth in Europe's elite competition after Villarreal were held at home to Deportivo La Coruna, who clinched survival. "We do not know what will happen, but we know we will give everything until the end".

Since the European Cup became the Champions League in 1992, Real Madrid have a 100% success rate in Champions League finals.

"We still have the most complicated part of the season to play and we're going to fight until the last moment". The referee allowed the goal to stand despite the protestations of the visitors, with Ronaldo doubling Real's advantage before the break.

"Mathematically we still have a chance", said defender Nico Pareja.

For many weeks now, reports have suggested that James Rodriguez is set to part company with Real Madrid this summer with the Colombian out of favour with current manager, Zinedine Zidane.

"We have two games left and we'll try to continue as we are".
