Casemiro proved the unlikely hero for Real Madrid as his second-half double proved enough to see off Julen Lopetegui’s Sevilla.

Real Madrid moved three points clear of Barcelona at the top of LaLiga as Casemiro’s double earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sevilla at Santiago Bernabeu.
Fresh from their penalty shootout victory over Atletico Madrid in the Supercopa de Espana, injury-hit Madrid were largely underwhelming until a moment of quality from Casemiro broke the deadlock shortly before the hour on Saturday.

Indeed, Sevilla thought they had taken the lead through Luuk de Jong’s header midway through the first half, but Julen Lopetegui’s luck was out against his former club as VAR came to Los Blancos’ rescue.
