Jorge Sampaoli's Sevilla finally managed to get three points after five league games.

Neymar was shown two yellow cards and dismissed midway through the second half as Barcelona handed control of the title race back to Real Madrid, who are three points ahead with a game in hand.

"Hopefully we won't slip up again but the league is more hard". The 19-year-old versatile midfielder has since failed to make the breakthrough into Luis Enrique's side but could be ready for a new opportunity to prove his worth at Malaga.

Barcelona continued to control possession after the break, nevertheless they nearly went two goals down in the 57th minute after Sandro did well to set up Juanpi in a risky situation, the Venezuelan midfielder training a shot right at Ter Stegen.

Sandro exposed some terrible defending from Jeremy Mathieu to sprint clear on goal and slot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen at his near post.

And the hosts did go a goal up when Sandro found the net following a rapid counterattack in the 32nd minute, beating Ter Stegen with a low shot at the near post after some unconvincing defending from Mathieu.

Barcelona are now in the second position of the point table.

Jony rubbed salt in the wounds when he added a second in stoppage time as the reigning champions chased a way back into the game that never materialised.

It was Pepe that got Real on the board first with a tally in the 52nd, after shaking off his marker he headed Toni Kroos' free kick just inside the far upright.

Substitute Angel Correa saw the sliver of space between Nacho Fernando and Dani Carvajal and slid the ball forward between the pair of Real defenders. "We know we are a strong team, with a great mentality".

It was a vintage performance for manager Diego Simeone's squad, which bent but never broke against a star-studded Real roster. These match logs are what Spanish soccer's governing body uses to determine if players should be fined and/or given additional suspensions and, well, mocking the referee generally doesn't play well.

While highlighting the effort by his defence, Simeone lauded Griezmann for his "passion, work ethic and ability to move in the box".

Navas has faced a barrage of criticsm this season, but he made another smart stop to deny Griezmann levelling with an outrageous overhead kick attempt.

The tie quickly turned ugly as the referee was called to stop play on numerous ocassions as tempers flaired and cinical challenges became frequent, while the Catalans grew frustrated by their struggles to find an equaliser.

Real president Florentino Perez is expected to win a third straight term unopposed in club elections this summer.
