For a moment there, it almost seemed as if Real Madrid was about to lose. Real started the game out by shooting itself in its own foot, as Danilo, 25, made the critical error by scoring on his own goal! The Real Madrid rightback gave Sevilla the first point, which went unanswered until after the half.
After intermission, these teams went nuts. Marco Asensio, 20 tied things up at minute-48, but Sevilla’s Stevan Jovetic, 27, put Los Leones up 2-1 at minute-53. When Vicente Iborra, 28, knocked in a third goal at the 77th minute, it seemed that Sevilla was going to win. Yet, Real came roaring back, with Sergio Ramos, 30, scoring on a penalty at ’83 and Karim Benzema, 29, nailing the final (and tying) goal in extra time. Real escaped with their undefeated streak in tact, while also advancing to the next stage of the Copa del Rey.
Things got personal during that game for Sergio. The former Sevilla player didn’t get a warm reception when during the game at his former home ground, according to the Daily Mail, and he took out his frustrations at the “disrespectful” fans by taunting them after converting the penalty kick.
“Sevilla will always be home for me whether they jeer me or not,” Ramos said. “But I’m the captain of Madrid and I’ll always try to do my best to help my team.” Will Sergio get even more revenge on his rude haters in this match? Or will Sevilla, who are 0-2 in their recent clashes against Los Blancos, finally hand Real Madrid a loss?
Who do you think is winning this match, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Real Madrid will remain undefeated?
