Real Madrid beat Sevilla 4-1 with Nacho Fernandez scoring the first with a quickly taken free-kick on 10 minutes.

Real Madrid and Barcelona both picked up 4-1 victories on Sunday with the battle for the La Liga title set to go down to the wire.

Luis Enrique is adamant his Barcelona players will continue to fight for the Liga title but is concerned its challenge may come unstuck at Las Palmas on Sunday.

Atletico Madrid sealed the third automatic Champions League spot, despite only drawing 1-1 at Real Betis.

Unzue was keen to take over from Luis Enrique when the current boss walks away in the summer and he had the support of numerous players because they believe he would be easier to influence than any new arrival.

In his pre-match press conference, he said: "We will use the system which will give us the biggest advantage, we do not lineup according to the setup of the opponent". With just one clean sheet and 43 conceded goals in the last 19 matches in LaLiga it's hard to expect that Las Palmas can handle what is arguably the best attack in the world.

And Kroos rounded off the scoring himself by prodding into the far corner six minutes from time.
