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.
De Jong did have his goal when he curled in a superb strike from the edge of the area after 64 minutes, only for Casemiro to double his tally five minutes later as Madrid claimed the points.
