Cristiano Ronaldo's 400th Real Madrid goal strengthens their title chase


"It's been the most complicated season since I arrived at the club, and we are reaching the end, once again, third", Simeone told reporters.

Real claimed the lead in freaky circumstances after 10 minutes as Nacho converted a quick direct free-kick to cause Sevilla embarrassment.

"When there are hard moments we know how to turn it around".

The Costa Rica global has received his fair share of criticism this season amid ongoing speculation Madrid are keen to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

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.

Barca stay top of La Liga thanks to their superior head-to-head record in the two Clasico clashes against Madrid this term, but Real have a game in hand (away to Celta Vigo on Wednesday night) and need only four points from their two remaining fixtures (the last one at Malaga next weekend) to claim a first title since 2011-12.

With Barcelona easing to a 4-1 win in a simultaneously played game at Las Palmas, the nerves were building around the Bernabeu before Ronaldo speared in a superb second of the evening, and there were smiles all around when Toni Kroos rounded off the scoring late on.

We still have the most hard yet to do - two games to play.

But Real's main man Cristiano Ronaldo has revved up his own form and goal-rate recently to ensure Bale has not been missed.

"It was a deserved win".

Nacho took the freekick early as the visitors were setting up their wall, with the referee allowing the goal to stand.

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

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

"Each day we are getting closer and with two games left we are going to continue in the same vein".

In his post-match interview with Movistar+, Suarez said: "We did our job which was to win our game".

"“I do not want to talk about anything else". The good thing is that we're very much plugged in and very well physically. "It's something that a forward of midfielder would do, so for Nacho to do is makes me happy for him".
