La Liga title race is very close - Ancelotti

Mon 18 April 2022 | 8:00

Real Madrid took an important step in winning the La Liga title with last night's victory.

Real Madrid

coach Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that the race for the La Liga title is very close after a dramatic victory over

Sevilla

.

Last night, Sevilla hosted Real Madrid and at the end of the first half, with the goals of Ivan Rakitic and Eric Lamela, they managed to win 2-0 against this team. However, the referee's decision not to show a second yellow card to

Eduardo Camavinga

at the end of the first half was met with many reactions. Camavinga left the pitch in the second half and was replaced by Rodrygo, who quickly scored Real's first goal. Nacho equalized eight minutes from time and

Karim Benzema

scored the winning goal for Madrid in stoppage time.

While Barcelona have played two games less, the difference between the two teams has reached 15 points and Ancelotti believes that there is a close competition for the championship.

The Italian said:

"No, it's not over, but it's really close.

"Everyone is waiting for the defeat of Real Madrid, but we are still on fire."

In the second half of the game, Vinicius managed to score a goal for Real Madrid, which the referee, after reviewing with the VAR, declared it a hand foul, a decision that was strongly protested by Real Madrid. Although the referee's decision had no effect on the outcome of the game, Ancelotti objected.

Asked if it was a harsh decision, he said:

"We thought the same.

"As a supporter, I didn't understand why the goal of Vinicius was disallowed, it was not handball.

"I know it's really difficult to judge this kind of situation, but I think it was quite clearly a goal."
