Real Madrid with a mega statement in the fight for the title

SEVILLE. The jubilation was immense during the week that Real Madrid managed to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League against Chelsea at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. But the truth is that the royal team lost 2:3. And now, five days later, there’s almost been another setback.

With Sevilla FC, the next difficult challenge awaited Real, this time away from home. But: The Primera División leader responded in sensational fashion on Sunday night’s Matchday 32, turning a 0-2 deficit into a 3-2 half-time triumph. A powerful and probably decisive statement in master combat.

FC Barcelona pursuers are now 15 points behind, at least temporarily, but can now close the gap to nine points in a week. The Catalans will face FC Cádiz at Camp Nou on Monday and make up for their Matchday 21 match against Rayo Vallecano next weekend. Will it be tight again in the title fight?

Starting XI: Vázquez and Carvajal in defense

Coach Carlo Ancelotti surprised with his starting XI in defence: Lucas Vázquez (right) and Daniel Carvajal (left) both defended past Thibaut Courtois, while Nacho Fernández, contrary to expectations, was not than on the bench. As usual, Éder Militão and David Alaba formed the center of defence. Eduardo Camavinga replaced suspended Casemiro in midfield along with Luka Modrić and Toni Kroos, while Federico Valverde was cleared to play alongside Karim Benzema and Vinícius Júnior in attack.

0-1, 0-2: Real Madrid shocked by a double

The appearance of the championship contender at one of his pursuers in the first half: unimaginative, harmless, flawed. The Merengues had already conceded one and two goals after 25 minutes. Ivan Rakitić first scores from a free kick, the ball goes through a hole in Real’s wall then hits the back of the net (21′). Shortly after, the Andalusians rose when Militão’s ball and the opponents got away, Courtois, who rushed into the penalty area, was too late and Erik Lamela only had to insert himself. after a pass. The defense of Real was no longer in good shape.

The underwhelming Madridians have now been challenged but haven’t achieved anything worth mentioning in the upcoming game. Benzema had a volley placed too central for the only serious conclusion (34th). After all, the home side didn’t do much after their sense of accomplishment.

Real Madrid go from strength to strength – Rodrygo shortened

Ancelott reacted personally to the change of sides, bringing in Rodrygo Goes for Camavinga, who had already been given a yellow card and was lucky not to even be sent off the pitch afterwards. Valverde has retired in midfield.

Real showed up much more committed after the restart – and quickly rewarded themselves for it. Vinícius and Carvajal combined well on the left, after which the Spaniard brought the ball in the middle and substitute Rodrygo reduced it to 1:2 (50th). Back in the game. Shortly before, Benzema had missed a great opportunity from a central position (48th), after the connection, Militão tested Sevillian goalkeeper Yassine Bounou with a long-range hammer blow (50th).

Incomprehensible! Nacho and Benzema slip behind

The Madrid guests had a lot of ball possession, pressed early, pressed Sevilla and were therefore vastly superior. Benzema fires a ball from the right just after the far post (63rd) – then Vinícius almost scores the equalizer.

About 15 minutes before the end of regulation time, the Brazilian throws the ball into the back of the net after a cross (74th), but the referee interprets this acceptance as a hand. A delicate scene, the round leather touched the upper arm and shoulder area, the decision after a review on the video screen was to the detriment of the people of Madrid.

Your 2:2 should still get. Nacho, who had just come into play, transformed a cross from Carvajal to equalize from a corner (82nd). And Real continued, desperate for the third goal. And I understood! Benzema made it 3-2 in the second minute of seven-minute stoppage time! final result!
