Koeman was too 'nervous' to watch Real Madrid and Sevilla's clash

Ideal for Barcelona and Atletico, the crucial La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Sevilla ended as a 2-2 draw as the Los Blancos were held from getting their nose ahead in the title race.

Fernando scored the opener for Sevilla in the 22nd-minute, and after an equalizer from Eden Hazard, Sevilla retained the lead with an Ivan Rakitic penalty. However, the German veteran, Toni Kroos, gave the game a dramatic end by scoring a late equalizer.

The result boosts the Blaugrana's hopes for the La Liga title as they sit on the same points with Real Madrid, 2 points clear of league leaders Atletico.

However, Ronald Koeman revealed he decided to watch the Serie A clash between Milan and Juventus instead of the Los Blancos' title-deciding match.

He told 

El Mundo Deportivo

: “I watched the first 20 minutes of Madrid and then I watched Milan against Juventus instead because it makes me a little nervous to see the other teams. I’d rather watch another game and know the result when it ends.”
