Real Madrid is going through a poor run of form after the unbeaten streak ended as Sevilla thrashes the Madrid side 2-1. The first leg at Santiago Bernabeu was equally miserable for the UEFA Champions league winners. 2 goals from Celta Vigo players and 1 from Marcelo made the full-time score 2-1. Celta Vigo flew from Madrid to Pontevedra with 2 away goals in the fixture, and with a 1 goal lead. Real Madrid was expected to make a comeback in the second leg to win the fixture. But Celta Vigo’s excellent performance managed to draw the game and progress to the semi-final of the competition.
The atmosphere at Balaidos stadium was a hostile one for the Madrid-based side. The home fans managed a pressure upon the Real Madrid players and that might have been a crucial factor in the draw. A number of regular starters of Real Madrid such as Dani Carvajal, Luka Modric, Pepe, Varane, and Gareth Bale were out due to injury. The eyes were on Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo for the win. Although the Portuguese scored a brilliant free-kick goal. It was enough. They needed more goals to win the fixture.
