Ten-man Madrid triumph over Sevilla

Real Madrid CF cut FC Barcelona's lead to two points thanks to Ángel Di María's lone strike against Sevilla FC on a day when Club Atlético de Madrid responded well to their European exit.

Ángel Di María squeezed in the only goal as Real Madrid CF made light of Ricardo Carvalho being dismissed to defeat Sevilla FC 1-0.

Having been frustrated in a first half during which the visitors created the better chances, Madrid seemed to be up against it when Carvalho was shown a second yellow card (63) for barging into the back of Álvaro Negredo. However, Di María (76) slotted in the winner when he fashioned enough space to place a shot past Andrés Palop after the goalkeeper had wandered from his goal to try and claim Pedro León's deflected attempt. Sevilla's Mouhamadou Dabo was shown a straight red in added time. 

Los Merengues' city rivals, Club Atlético de Madrid, delivered a positive response to exiting the UEFA Europa League by winning 3-0 at third-bottom Málaga CF. Tiago scored twice, both headers from Simão free-kicks, and set up the other for Álvaro Domínguez as Los Colchaneros moved within two points of the top four.

Elsewhere, struggling Real Zaragoza drew 0-0 with CA Osasuna and Getafe CF – level on points with Atlético − recovered from two down in a 3-2 victory over UD Almería. Real Racing Club against Hércules CF concludes the 16th round of matches on Monday.
