Real Madrid is the new 2nd place of the Spanish La Liga! On Sunday, Zinedine Zidane’s side visited Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, played a safe match and defeated the hosts 0-1 in the Matchday 5 in La Liga. Frenchman Karim Benzema was the author of the sole goal of the match.

In an even first-half, Real Madrid built the top two chances for goal but was denied by the Czech keeper Vaclik. In the first, Hazard appeared unmarked from the left and fired to the great defense of the Czech. Following this, Carvajal received a great pass from James Rodriguez and finished for the goalkeeper’s new intervention.

In the second half, Real Madrid did not take long to open the scoring. With 63 on the clock, Carvajal went to the bottom line and crossed just enough for Benzema, free in the penalty area, to head in Vaclik’s corner and score a beautiful goal.

Seeking at least one draw, the home team went for the all or nothing. At 87, Nolito made a good play from the left and struck towards the middle of the area, where Chicharito Hernandez deflected into the net, but the goal was disallowed for offside, nearly guaranteeing the Madrid victory.

With the result, Real Madrid are recovering from their embarrassing defeat to PSG in the UEFA Champions League, maintaining their unbeaten run in Spain and moving to 11 points, taking second place. On the other hand, Sevilla has 10 points and went from 1st to fifth in the Spanish la Liga.

Real Madrid will be back on the pitch for the competition this Wednesday, when they host Osasuna, at the Santiago Bernabeu. A day later, Sevilla visits the Eibar at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium.
