Real Madrid receive La Liga boost as Sevilla slip up

Sevilla had a head start in La Liga this weekend by playing the Friday night game against Deportivo Alaves. However, they failed to put pressure on league leaders Real Madrid by dropping points instead of closing the gap.

The Andalusian side could have gotten to within three points of Los Blancos with a victory, but were held to a goalless draw by the home side. As such, Real Madrid now sit five points ahead of Sevilla and still with a game in hand.

The leaders have 60 points at the top of the table, and could bring that up to 63, eight points ahead of Sevilla at 55. Of course, Carlo Ancelotti’s side first need to get past Real Sociedad, whom they will be facing on Saturday evening. If they secure a victory, it will be a big boost for their La Liga campaign, and a much needed boost of confidence ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash with PSG on Wednesday.
