15.01.2017 » Sevilla 2-1 Real Madrid. And the streak finally came to an end!

Cristiano Ronaldo frustrated after Real Madrid 2-1 loss against Sevilla

It was the 3rd time Real Madrid and Sevilla met in the past couple of weeks and this time around, Sampaoli got the better of Zinedine Zidane. The Merengues saw their unbeaten streak interrupted at the Sánchez Pizjuán, after losing 2-1 to the Andalusian side.

The Sevilla trilogy finished today, as Real Madrid's 40-game unbeaten run came to an end against Sevilla, due to a last minute finish from Stevan Jovetic, who just joined the side this week from Inter Milan. His goal, coming in the dying moments of the match, allowed the hosts to grab a 2-1 lead and ended Madrid's fantastic streak. In practical terms, Sampaoli's men have now cut the league lead for the Merengues to a mere one point. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal from his side, but a Sergio Ramos' own goal and Jovetic winner in added time brought the European champions down to earth.

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Sevilla:

After successfully navigating past Sevilla in some high-octane matches in the Copa Del Rey, it was expected that this match would be a bit calmer. And while it certainly started that way, it ended with a bang...

Zidane rolled out a 3-5-2 formation today, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema leading the line up in attack. Nacho, Varane and Ramos kept it tight in the center and with Casemiro protecting them, Real Madrid frustrated Sevilla time and time again early. Without his usual load of defensive responsibilities, Luka Modric was tour-de-force today, terrorizing the Sevilla backline time and time again.

Still, Real Madrid struggled to put any serious chances together in front of goal and that basically allowed Sevilla to keep believing they could come out with a positive result tonight.

The game opened up at times in the second half and in the 67th minute Real Madrid would go up 1-0 from the penalty spot. Capitalizing on a poor pass from the back, Dani Carvajal rounded Adil Rami before being upended by Sergio Rico. The keeper protested, but at the end of the day it was a clear foul anywhere in the world. Ronaldo, who hadn't had a good game thus far, buried his penalty into the bottom corner before peeling off into his patented celebration.

All seemed well as we entered the last 10 minutes, but then everything went horribly wrong. Pablo Sarabia, a former Castilla player would hurt his old team as none other than Sergio Ramos would head his cross into his own net. Ramos is usually known for his heroics on the other end, but this time around, he was the villain. And it would get worse as the final whistle approached. With hardly any numbers back, Sevilla were able to break on Madrid and Jovetic's well-placed shot just had enough on it to beat the out stretched hands of Keylor Navas. 2-1 and with hardly any time remaining, the streak was over...

Some may be relieved the streak is over, now the team will not be under as much pressure to keep it going and can focus ahead on performing well for the rest of the season. But the fashion in which the streak was lost will surely leave a sour taste in the mouths of Madrid fans.
