Real Madrid topped the La Liga table after Casemiro scored twice to earn Los Blancos a 2-1 victory against Sevilla on Saturday at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

In a very tough match with few chances, Real finally found an opening when Casemiro scored at the 57th minute.

But seven minutes later, Luuk de Jong’s curling shot gave Sevilla an equalizer.

Then a 69th-minute header from Casemiro sealed victory for Real Madrid to the top of La Liga.

Next, Sevilla host Granada on January 25 while Madrid travel to Real Valladolid on the following day.
