Statistical breakdown of UCL semis

Five Aside

Cristiano Ronaldo keeps Real Madrid's title hopes alive with hat trick at Sevilla

Cristiano Ronaldo's goals led Real Madrid to victory at Sevilla and kept the pressure on Barcelona atop La Liga.

SEVILLA, Spain -- Three things from Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan as Real Madrid hang on for a 3-2 win at Sevilla in La Liga's crunch Saturday evening game.

1. Madrid stick to Barca in title race

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick was just about enough as Madrid won a thriller at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, ending Sevilla's 34-game unbeaten run at home and keeping the gap to La Liga leaders Barcelona at just two points.

Barcelona's 8-0 win in nearby Cordoba earlier on Saturday afternoon had added an...

Ronaldo's scoring and Casillas' saving lead Real over Sevilla

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer reviews Real Madrid's 3-2 win over Sevilla, as Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick ended Sevilla's remarkable unbeaten run at home.

It was never going to be an easy three points for Real Madrid in the Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday night and the statistics bear out all pre-match predictions that Sevilla were going to fight tooth and nail to preserve the longest-standing unbeaten record across Europe's top leagues -- 34 matches at home without defeat.

Real had 56 percent of the ball to Sevilla's 44, there were 18 tackles from the home side to the visitors' 20, and 11 fouls to 12. Sevilla had 18 shots to Real's 14, with both...

Champions League semifinals rest on four one-on-one battles

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The business end of the Champions League is upon us, and with seven the minimum number of final appearances made by each team in this year's last four, the current semifinals promise to be particularly spectacular.

Real Madrid may be gunning to become the first team to defend the trophy in the Champions League era, but with a win in this competition being the one achievement eluding Juventus in their post-Calciopoli scandal resurgence, the will of the Italians shouldn't be underestimated -- and neither...

Real Madrid's big win; Terry's message; credit to Allegri; Bayern concerns

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes the pressure is back on Barcelona following Cristiano Ronaldo's thrilling hat trick against a Sevilla side who had not lost at home in 34 matches.

You step on the pitch with the table saying you're five points back. Sure, you have a game in hand, but it happens to be at Sevilla's Sanchez Pizjuan, where you haven't won since 2011 and, in fact, where no visiting team has won in 35 games.

You need to conjure up a result but, at the same time, you're playing your biggest game of the season thus far on Tuesday night in the Champions League, where you're 180 minutes away from the final and the chance to make it two in a row, something nobody has...

1. Title watch

Barcelona won 8-0 at Cordoba on Saturday to remain two points clear atop the La Liga table with just three games to play, but Real Madrid's 3-2 win at Sevilla could yet prove the more significant result in the title race.

It was a minor surprise that Barca's game against the already doomed Cordoba was still scoreless past the 40-minute mark, but Ivan Rakitic and Luis...
