La Liga Santander League leaders Real Madrid beat Sevilla with superb Modric goal

Real Madrid picked up an important win in their quest for the league title.

The league leaders overcame Sevilla thanks to a goal in the 80th minute, which came from Modric with a well-struck shot from the edge of the area.

The Santiago Bernabeu remains a deciding factor for Madrid, with 11 wins and 2 draws at home. The game got off to a slow start, with Sevilla making their presence felt in the Madrid area following a counter-attack that En-Nesyri was unable to convert after just eight minutes.

Lucas Vazquez then scored, picking up a great pass from Vini Jr. with his left foot and finishing with a fine effort across the goal, but it was disallowed by Diaz de Mera, who was alerted to the monitor by the VAR referee and judged that Nacho had fouled En-Nesyri in the build up.

The league leaders’ dominance was overwhelming against an opponent, who were defending in their own area and hardly conceded any chances. As a result, Valverde tried his luck in stoppage time with a powerful long-range shot that Nyland had to keep out.
