Sevilla took an early lead as Rafa Mir capitalized on a rebound, unleashing a first-time shot into the roof of the net within the opening three minutes.
However, Real Madrid, lacking a recognized striker and fielding five central midfielders, equalized through Rodrygo’s expertly taken free-kick.
His shot caught Sevilla goalkeeper Bono off guard, leaving him stranded as he anticipated the Brazilian aiming for the opposite corner.
The first half was action-packed, with Erik Lamela striking the post and missing a golden opportunity to score from close range.
Despite their chances, Sevilla failed to capitalize. In the second half, Rodrygo shone once again, netting an exceptional second goal to secure the win for Real Madrid.
During a swift counterattack from a Sevilla free-kick, he skillfully evaded Gonzalo Montiel before calmly slotting the ball into the net.
As the game progressed, tensions rose, and the match became marred by fouls. Marcos Acuna received a late red card for a studs-up tackle. Sevilla seemed more focused on fouling Dani Ceballos rather than searching for an equalizer.
With this triumph, Real Madrid maintains their second-place standing in the league with 77 points, while Sevilla, sitting in tenth place with 49 points, must rely on winning the Europa League final on Wednesday to secure a spot in European competition for the next season.
