Real sight La Liga title after 3-0 rout of Sevilla

AFP – Karim Benzema struck a brace in a 3-0 win over Sevilla on Sunday as Real Madrid edged closer to their first Spanish league title in four years.

The win gave Real a 10-point lead on arch-rivals Barcelona and will be enough to secure the championship if Barca lose to Rayo Vallecano later Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring at the Bernabeu for Jose Mourinho’s side and Benzema added a brace after the interval to put them within touching distance of a first La Liga title since 2008.

Real, who were eliminated from the Champions League after a semi-final defeat to Bayern Munich in midweek, thus took their record breaking haul of league goals for the season to 112.
