Real Madrid locked horns with Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to collect maximum points on the road. Los Blancos made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the 21st minute when Ivan Rakitic found the back of the net for the home side. Erik Lamela doubled Sevilla’s advantage just four minutes later with a calm finish. Real Madrid went into the half-time break 2-0 down on the scoreline.

Rodrygo got a goal back for the Madrid giants just five minutes into the second half. Nacho finally netted the equaliser for the visitors in the 82nd minute before Karim Benzema won the game by scoring a dramatic goal in injury time. The match ended with Real Madrid securing an entertaining 3-2 win at Andalusia.

Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player performed during the clash against Sevilla.

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 5.5/10

The Belgian keeper didn’t make a save in the game and will be disappointed after conceding two goals in the second half.

RB: Lucas Vazquez – 7/10

Vazquez got stuck in with some crunching tackles and earned possession back a couple of times. However, he offered very little going forward.

CB: Eder Militao – 6.5/10

Militao had a few shaky moments at the back but was a threat going forward.

CB: David Alaba – 6/10

He was accurate with his passing and had a tough game defensively inside his half, especially in the first half.
