Sevilla Thrashes Helpless Real Madrid 3-0 To Move Up The Table
Real Madrid suffered their first LaLiga defeat of Julen Lopetegui’s reign on Wednesday, as they were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by an Andre Silva-inspired Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Lopetegui’s side were hoping to make the most of Barcelona’s loss at Leganes earlier in the day, but they were taken apart by Pablo Machin’s Sevilla and rarely looked like clawing their way back.
Madrid had no answer to the hosts in the first half, with a Silva brace and Wissam Ben Yedder volley leaving Los Blancos stunned at the interval.
Any chance of a comeback appeared to vanish early in the second half when a goal from Luka Modric – named the Best FIFA Men’s Player on Monday – was correctly disallowed by VAR, and Sevilla were ultimately good value for the win.
