Spanish La Liga : Sevilla 2 – 0 Real Madrid
To date, Atletico Madrid is in first place, Barcelona is in second place, Real Madrid is in third, Athletic Biibao is in fourth, Sevilla is in fifth, Real Sociedad is in sixth, and Villareal CF is in seventh.
Former Real Madrid manager John Toshack said after the match that Gareth Bale's decision to change his boots at 70 minutes was "criminal".
Midway in the clash with Sevilla, Bale went to the sidelines to change his boots while play continued, allowing a winning goal from Carlos Bacca through the area Bale should have defended.
Real Madrid Carlo Ancelotti evidently allowed the decision.
"Bale changing his boots 70 minutes in - leaving the pitch to change them - is criminal. The coach should give him the silent treatment for a month," said Toshack.
Real Madrid stayed in the running for La Liga silverware with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona earning a 5-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano today.
