Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane does not "care what people think" about the fact he made wholesale changes to his team for Wednesday's 3-2 defeat at Sevilla.

There are still two games left and it was an opportunity to show up. Its final games are at Levante and against Real Sociedad.

The league leaders moved 15 points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top while Villarreal stay sixth.

Mayoral scored his seventh goal this season. Villarreal managed a consolation when Pablo Fornals" shot deflected in off Nicola Sansone but any fears Ernesto Valverde's side would feel the effects of Sunday's "Clasico' proved unfounded.

"Now, the objective is to finish second, you have to keep fighting until the end".

Goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Miguel Layun gave Sevilla a two-goal lead before the break.

Ramos, a former Sevilla player who is often jeered by the crowd when he plays in Seville, missed his first penalty attempt by sending the ball onto the crossbar early in the second half.

Substitute Borja Mayoral got one back with a neat header late on, before Ramos stepped up again and this time converted his penalty awarded in added time.

Sevilla starting to look like the more unsafe attacking threat and their play was only briefly interrupted after a free-kick from Casemrio called David Soria into action for the first time in the match as he dove down to his right to smother the effort on goal.

Among other players rested by Zidane on Wednesday night were Luka Modric, Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane.
