What a win!!!
It’s time to celebrate this epic comeback against Sevilla. We’re now 15 points ahead of them. Los Blancos need now only 10 points more to secure the La Liga title.
Alaba is back celebrating with a chair:

It’s not easy to understand the referee decisions regarding handballs in this game. While Vinicius goal was disallowed when he controlled the ball with his shoulder, the referee didn’t call it a penalty when the ball clear touches Sevilla’s player with his arm wide open.
