Brahim Diaz starred as Real Madrid moved closer to the La Liga title with victory over Cadiz.

The former Manchester City winger netted a sublime strike, firing into the top corner from just inside the box in the 51st minute.

Diaz was influential again when Jude Bellingham got on the end of his cutback to double Real’s lead by ghosting into the box and poking home from close range.

The England midfielder started on the bench but scored just three minutes after entering the game.

Joselu scored a tap-in to wrap up the victory in added time after Nacho raced through into the box and squared for his team-mate to finish with ease.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois returned to the side for his first match of the season following a nine-month injury lay-off because of a knee ligament injury.

With four league matches remaining, Real Madrid need just one more point to seal the title.

In England, Arsenal cleared another hurdle in their Premier League title quest with a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth in their penultimate home game yesterday to pile the pressure on Manchester City who defeated Wolves 5-1.

The Gunners dominated the opening 45 minutes and took the lead just before half-time from the penalty spot.

Kai Havertz was brought down by Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers and Bukayo Saka coolly rolled the ball into the net from the resulting spot-kick.

Arsenal doubled their lead in the 70th minute when Declan Rice won the ball on the edge of the box and teed up Leandro Trossard, who curled the ball home from inside the area, before Rice scored in added time to boost the Gunners’ goal difference.

In the end, Arsenal won with a flourish and will now focus on beating Manchester United and Everton in their final two games and hope that City falter.

Bournemouth can still finish in the top half of the table but they did not come too close to picking up any more points in this match.
