Fiesta at the Bernabeu in final home game

Despite a few minutes of uncertainty with the scoreboard reading 2-1 at one stage, Zinedine Zidane’s rotation worked again as Real Madrid put on a festival of football at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

The supporters breathed easier and exploded with jubilation when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his second, Real’s third, to put the game beyond Sevilla and ensure that the LaLiga title race goes down to the final game of the season.

With the pressure off, Los Blancos began to showboat and the ‘oles’ were heard in the stands towards the end of the match.

The first of four finals has been negotiated successfully, and now Real travel to Celta on Wednesday for their next, crucial assignment.
