Luka Modric's late goal wrapped up the points for Madrid and capped a strong performance from the Ballon d'Or winner.

Real Madrid moved into third place in La Liga thanks to a 2-0 victory over Sevilla at the Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon, with midfielders Casemiro and Luka Modric getting on the scoresheet in the second half.

Positives

Madrid were the better team in a battle against a direct rival for Champions League qualification -- even if that shows the lowered standards around the Bernabeu at the moment. A clean sheet and improved defensive performance also seemed to be an objective achieved for the coach....

Isco, Marcelo fail to seize opportunity as Real Madrid limp by Leganes in Copa del Rey

FC's Ale Moreno delves into what is going wrong for Isco at Real Madrid as rumours continue to swirl over his future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The FC guys are incredulous that Isco keeps being left out as Real Madrid struggle to put together results under Santi Solari.

Real Madrid made very heavy work of qualifying for the Copa del Rey quarterfinals, winning 3-1 on aggregate over Leganes. Despite Leganes dominating Wednesday's last-16 second leg at Butarque, Los Pepineros were only able to manage one goal.

Positives

Just 12 months after going out of the Copa to their suburban neighbours in the quarterfinals, Los Blancos did enough to progress to the last eight on a night when Atletico Madrid crashed out. No new fitness problems was also a plus -- considering...

Real Madrid's obsession with Neymar led them to prodigy Vinicius Jr.

The FC guys are incredulous that Isco keeps being left out as Real Madrid struggle to put together results under Santi Solari.

Florentino Perez's obsession with Neymar has brought him nothing but heartache, embarrassment and torment. Until now. Until Vinicius Jr.

Neymar was the kid Real Madrid saw first. Not just before Vinicius but before Barcelona spotted Neymar. He was the uncut diamond their South American scouting system brought over to train at Valdebebas and show his brilliance, even aged 14.

"I'd never seen a kid of that age who was so skilled," said Jesus Gutierrez, who was the Madrid academy coach in charge of...

Dani Ceballos 8/10, Luka Modric 7/10 in Real Madrid's scrappy win over Real Betis

The FC guys are incredulous that Isco keeps being left out as Real Madrid struggle to put together results under Santi Solari.
Luka Modric opened the scoring, and Dani Ceballos' free kick in the 88th minute rescued all three points for Real Madrid as they defeat Real Betis 2-1.

An injury hit Real Madrid battled to a 2-1 victory at Real Betis in Sunday evening's La Liga clash -- with substitute Dani Ceballos' late free kick winning the three points, after Luka Modric's fine first-half strike was cancelled out by Sergio Canales' smart equaliser near the hour mark.

Positives

Madrid surprised everybody with a tactically and physically excellent first half performance which had them deservedly ahead at the break. Younger players such as Fede Valverde and Vinicius Junior continue...

Youngsters Vinicius Junior, Federico Valverde shine as Real Madrid bounce back in Copa del Rey

Real Madrid head coach Santiago Solari agrees with Luka Modric's harsh assessment of the club's run of poor form.
Real Madrid's Brahim Diaz insists the only club he ever thought about leaving Manchester City for was Real Madrid and that no other clubs were options for him.

A 3-0 Copa del Rey last-16 first leg victory over Leganes at the Bernabeu sees Real Madrid move close to the quarterfinals, and should -- for now -- ease some of the speculation around coach Santi Solari's long-term future.

Positives

Madrid played pretty well once they went ahead thanks to Sergio Ramos' penalty just before the break.

With confidence flowing in the second half, Vinicius Junior's superb 12-yard volley was the cherry on top, and another sign that the young Brazilian is getting very...
