Real Madrid missed an opportunity to lead the Spanish Football League standings, and wasted two valuable points that could cause it to lose the title of the competition this season, after a 2-2 draw with its guest Sevilla on Sunday in the 35th stage of the tournament.
Real rejected the gift given to him by his rivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after they tied without goals in their meeting at the same stage on Saturday, as the three points for Real today were sufficient to lead the white team to lead the championship with a difference in direct confrontations in front of its arch-neighbor Atletico, who would have been equal with him in the balance of points.
Real (the defending champion) remained in second place in the competition ranking with a score of 75, with a difference in direct confrontations against Barcelona, who is third in the same score, while they are two points behind Atlético (the leaders), who became the only team that has the fate of crowning the title.

On the other hand, Seville – who failed to win for the second game in a row after losing to Athletic Bilbao in the last stage – remained in fourth place with 71 scores.
Sevilla scored through Fernando Regis in the 22nd minute, before Marco Asensio equalized for the royal team in the 67th minute.
While Real tried to score the second goal, Croatian Ivan Rakitic brought Sevilla back up again after scoring the second goal for the Andalusian team in the 78th minute from a penalty kick, while Seville’s Diego Carlos scored the equalizer for Real by mistake against his team in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
