Real Madrid suffered a setback in the title race in LaLiga, but averted worse damage thanks to international Toni Kroos. Los Blancos fought their way to a 2: 2 (0: 1) against FC Sevilla four days after the semi-final in the Champions League and pushed themselves back to second place in the table despite a bitter experience with the video referee (the highlights in the video) .
The Brazilian Fernando (22nd) and ex-Barca professional Ivan Rakitic (78th) scored the goals of the guests, Marco Asensio (67th) and an own goal by Diego Carlos (90th + 4), who unlucky a shot from Kroos falsified, Reals equalized twice.
In the table, Atletico Madrid (77 points) are still at the top, followed by Real in front of FC Barcelona (both 75), Seville is fourth (71st). There are still three game days to go.
The trickiest scene of the game took place in front of Rakitic’s penalty goal. Real received a penalty in the 74th minute after a foul on striker Karim Benzema, but the referee Juan Martinez Munuera withdrew shortly afterwards. The reason: Before the foul on Benzema, there had been a handball by Real professional Eder Militao in the penalty area of the royal team. The referee looked at the video images – and after a long hesitation decided on a penalty for Sevilla.
