3 takeaways from Real Madrid's 2-3 win against Sevilla

Crucial victory for Los Blancos against a very tough Sevilla side.

  1. Real Madrid will force Barcelona to win all their remaining games. Ancelotti and his men will not throw away this Liga title, and Barça will likely need to win each one of their three matches left to conquer it. This was arguably the hardest game left on Real's schedule, and while Valencia will visit the Bernabéu next Saturday too, Los Blancos still don't give up and want to apply pressure on Barcelona.
  2. Gareth Bale is an extremely valuable player for this squad. The Welsh isn't having a brilliant season, that's undeniable. And yet, he came on and excelled against Sevilla's defensive line. His cross was magnificent on Real's third and game-clinching goal -- though Cristiano Ronaldo's finish should be noted --. Bale is facing a lot of criticism lately and some want to see him as a reserve, but his offensive production will be a very important asset as Real Madrid try to collect trophies this season.
  3. Real are ready for Juventus. Anything can happen in the Champions League Semifinals, but this team is ready to face Juventus. Pirlo and Co. just conquered the Serie A title, but Real Madrid should play with intensity trying to control the tempo of the game. Good things should happen if Los Blancos are the aggressors.
