Real Betis 1 Atletico Madrid 1 Scrappy Savic strike secures share of the spoils

This is very long, to win La Liga.

However, Real have a game in hand on their title rivals and if they collect four points from their final two games, they will be crowned champions.

TALKING POINT - Should Nacho Fernandez's opener have stood?

"We love him as a person and admire him as a player". The defender appeared to talk to the referee before striking the set piece, but should he have been allowed to do that? Was Nacho simply being inventive?

Then, on the final day of the season next Sunday, Real visit Malaga and Barcelona entertain Eibar. The transformation from number seven to number nine is complete.

Real led through Nacho's controversial free-kick before Ronaldo pounced on a rebound to double their lead. Subs - Modric 5, Casemiro 5, Vazquez 5.

Nico Pareja, Matias Kranevitter, Daniel Carrico, Joaquin Correa and Stevan Jovetic were new additions to the starting XI for Sevilla as they rotated their side. Subs - Ben Yedder 5, Montoya 6, Gonzalez 5.

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.

In a match that saw Sevilla threaten and Real hold on, the hosts jumped out to a 2-0 lead before suffering late Here's what to know.

It was a 400th Madrid goal for the Portuguese and an important one. They flew forward on the counter attack through Asensio, with James' shot inside the box falling to Ronaldo, who applied the finishing touch from close range. But still Sevilla threatened and again Jovetic hit the crossbar from a delicate chip with Navas beaten.

Neymar scored a hat trick for Barcelona in a comfortable 4-1 win at Las Palmas, while Cristiano Ronaldo scored a pair of goals for Madrid in a 4-1 home victory over Sevilla.

78' GOAL! Real Madrid 3-1 Sevilla: What an astonishing finish! The Barcelona goalscorer has found the back of the net 346 times since his 2004 debut. The power that was hit with. wow!

Ronaldo has scored 37 goals in all competitions this season and his team are next in action at Celta Vigo on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the brink of history after scoring twice on Sunday to tie with Jimmy Greaves as the all-time top scorer in Europe's five biggest leagues.
