Sevilla End Real's 40-Game Unbeaten Run

This is a big one as Sevilla are now third in la liga standings behind first placed Real Madrid and Barcelona (who have an extra game played).

Zinedine Zidane's men had gone 40 games without defeat and drew 3 - 3 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the Copa del Rey in midweek.

And there was to be one final twist as Navas failed to keep out Jovetic's effort, Sevilla fans and players ecstatic at the final whistle as a shell-shocked Madrid were forced to contemplate their long undefeated run coming to a close.

That proved to be the only chance of the opening 45 minutes, as the sides went into the halftime break goalless. Jovetic bagged a goal as his side took a 3-1 lead, but some heroics from Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema kept the run alive.

Ronaldo had the best opportunity of the first-half when he sliced wide from Benzema's risky cross.

Sevilla were now on top and grabbed a victor in stoppage time when substitute Jovetic's curled effort from the edge of the area brushed the hand of Navas and nestled into the corner.

Luka Modric had a penalty claim waved away at the start of the second-half, whilst at the other end Wissam Ben Yedder tested Keylor Navas with a low drive that the Real 'keeper comfortably gathered.

A tight game was forced open when Sevilla left back Sergio Escudero misplaced a backpass and Real's Dani Carvajal raced onto it and into the box, beating a defender and trying to round goalkeeper Sergio Rico before being tripped.

Despite Vitolo's best attempts to damage the penalty spot as Ronaldo prepared to take, the Portuguese comfortably dispatched the ball into the bottom corner for his 23rd goal against Sevilla.
