Race for the title

Spanish La Liga

Barca, who are also in the Champions League semi-finals and Copa del Rey final, know if they can manage to win their last four La Liga matches then they will regain the title from last season's gatecrashers Atletico Madrid.

However, even one draw could be enough to hand the trophy to arch-rivals Real, who would win their first Liga since 2012 if the teams finish level on points.

Spanish teams who finish level on points are separated by their head-to-head record - not goal difference - and Madrid have the superior record this season. Carlo Ancelotti's side won 3-1 at the Bernabeu, before losing 2-1 at the Nou Camp.

Some Body: Hmm, without #CR7, Real would be mid-table!

FULL-TIME

Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid

Madrid were made to battle for the three points in a nervous finish, but they have seen out the job required. The win, which also ends Sevilla's 13-month unbeaten home record, puts Carlo Ancelotti's side back within two points of arch-rivals Barcelona.

Three minutes of stoppage time for Madrid to hang on. Hang on in this game - and hang on to Barca's coat-tails in the Spanish title race.

Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid

More nervy defending from Real Madrid. Pepe's back header is glanced on by Sevilla's Denis Suarez towards team-mate Ever Banega, forcing Iker Casillas to race off his line to bravely snuff out the danger.

SUBSTITUTION

Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti sacrifices attacking midfielder Isco for the more-defensive minded Asier Illarramendi. That tells you everything you need to know about this game...

Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid

Madrid go the attack, Toni Kroos's low shot towards the bottom corner easily saved. Sevilla battled back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against Real's title rivals Barcelona last month. Can they do it again?

TEN TO GO

Sevilla 2-3 Real Madrid

Spanish La Liga

Sevilla have the bit between their teeth now - can they find a leveller while Madrid are rattled? Substitute Kevin Gameiro dispossesses France team-mate Raphael Varane on the right flank, only to dally before crossing and allowing the Madrid defender to nick the ball back.

What an impact from Gareth Bale! The world's most expensive player whips in a delicious right-wing cross with his first contribution, landing the ball right on the forehead of Cristiano Ronaldo. And theworld's best player does the rest. Ronaldo expertly sends a looping header over the reach of Sevilla keeper Sergio Rico into the far corner.

The tracksuit is off - here's Gareth Bale. The Welshman comes on for Real Madrid, replacing Javier Hernandez.

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Sevilla midfielder Aleix Vidal races down the left, hurtles into the Madrid box, only to be superbly dispossessed by Pepe. Perfectly-timed challenge. That sets the platform for Madrid to attack again, a patient move ending in Toni Kroos shoot narrowly over the crossbar.

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Spanish La Liga

End to end stuff at the moment. Sevilla's former QPR midfielder Stephane Mbia tries to chip to a team-mate when he appeared better placed to shoot, before Madrid threaten on the counter through James Rodriguez. That moves breaks down, allowing Sevilla to break again...

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Half chance for Cristiano Ronaldo as Real Madrid enjoy a decent spell of possession. A high ball is flung from deep on the left towards the Portuguese skipper at the far post, but his header lacks power to beat home keeper Sergio Rico.

Sevilla stay on the front foot as they search for a leveller, but are unable to create another decent opening. In other news, Gareth Bale is warming up on the touchline...

The chances are flowing more freely than the champagne at a swanky Turin bar tonight. Cristiano Ronaldo thumps a lazy free-kick into the home wall, then James Rodriguez sloppily gives away possession, allowing Sevilla to break on the counter. Argentine midfielder Ever Banega tears down the right flank, but cannot pick out a fellow white shirt with a low cross.

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Spanish La Liga

The eyes of Jose Antonio Reyes light up as a poor Madrid defensive header bounces invitingly towards him about 15 yards out. But thankfully for the away team, it falls on his less-favoured right foot. The ex-Arsenal striker scoops over the away goal, but it has been a bright start to the second half from the hosts.

Now it is the turn of Los Merengues to attack. Toni Kroos ventures forward and decides to shoot from distance - and he isn't far off. Sevilla keeper Sergio Rico is scrambling but is grateful to see the ball whistle out for a goal kick.

Close! Sevilla continue to maintain a high tempo after half-time, harrying Madrid into conceding another corner. This time Stephan Mbia meets Jose Antonio Reyes' left-wing set-piece, flashing a bullet header just wide.

Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 Bayern Munich

German Bundesliga

Having made six changes, Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich suffer only their third defeat of the season at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen. Hakan Calhanoglu put Leverkusen ahead with a free-kick, and Julian Brandt's goal on the break late on made the points safe. The Bundesliga champions have bigger fish to fry, though, with the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Guardiola's old club Barcelona to come on Wednesday.

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Sevilla need at least one goal but with Real's attacking threat you would hedge your bets that they will need more than one to even nab a point.

The home side earn a flurry of early corners, piling the pressure on to the second-place visitors.

KICK-OFF

Sevilla 1-2 Real Madrid

Back under way in Sevilla. No changes for either side - although the camera does pan on to Madrid sub Gareth Bale as he retakes his seat.
