Casemiro's all-round performance in the 2-1 win over Sevilla at the Santiago Bernabeu was excellent at both ends of the pitch.

With the game in the balance, the Brazilian's burst into the area and smart dink over the goalkeeper opened the scoring, then after Luuk De Jong had equalised for the visitors, he stepped up to head home what proved to be the winning goal.

Casemiro has unquestionably added goals to his game recently, but his defensive performance was also exemplary, winning all five of his tackles and achieving 11 ball recoveries, more than anyone else on the pitch.

It was a key result for Madrid, effectively ending Sevilla's faint title hopes, while maintaining pressure on Barcelona, who face Granada at home on Sunday night.
