Real Madrid and Sevilla came face to face for the 3rd time in the past 11 days. The visitors were the favorites to win the game as they won against Sevilla in the Copa Del Rey round of 16 with an aggregate score 6-3. Moreover, Zinedine Zidane was an unbeaten streak of 40 games in all competition. But Sevilla surprised the footballing world as they smashed a late winner in the 90th minute to grab 3 points home and end Real Madrid’s unbeaten streak.
Playing at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium is never easy for any visiting team. When the Los Blancos side visits to play a game, the stadium seems to show an atmosphere of intense rivalry due to a lot of history between the 2 Spanish football clubs. It was similar this time as well and there were few moments of violence during the game. Cristiano Ronaldo has always been a controversial figure when it comes to violence and arrogance on the pitch. He threw the ball at the back of a Sevilla player just before taking the penalty.
Another controversial figure in the match last night was the Spaniard Sergio Ramos who has been known to score equalizers at the crucial times. This time he did it for Sevilla as he scored an own goal. The final whistle caused Sevilla to climb up back at the 2nd spot of La Liga table. Barcelona stayed at the 3rd position, 1 point behind Sevilla. Whereas, Real Madrid remained at the top, 1 point ahead of Sevilla and 2 ahead of Barcelona.
