  • Match Reports: Sevilla FC 2-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid's 40-match unbeaten run was brought to an end as Sevilla's Stevan Jovetic scored a stoppage-time victor to down the Spanish giants. However, he netted on his debut against Real on Thursday in a 3-3 Copa del Rey draw and repeated the trick with a great hit from 25 metres out, two minutes into time added on.

Sevilla now sit third, trailing Barcelona by two points. If I'm going to repeat the line-up, this doesn't change anything, but I'm going to count on the 24 players until the end of the season.

Real Madrid hadn't lost since an April Champions League match against Wolfsburg, winning or drawing 40 games in a row to set the record for longest unbeaten streak in Spanish soccer history. Madrid were without Cristiano Ronaldo, and had to rely on a late Karim Benzema equalizer to keep their unbeaten streak alive.

However, a Sergio Ramos own-goal and Steven Jovetic's late strike sealed the victory for Jorge Sampaoli's side.

Serbian midfielder Nemanja Radoja scored an 89th-minute victor as Celta Vigo salvaged a 1-0 home win over 10-man Alaves.

At the third time of asking in the space of 11 days, Sevilla finally got the better of Real Madrid to not only inflict their first defeat in 41 matches, but also blow the La Liga title race wide open.

Nemanja Radoja scored an 89th minute victor as Celta Vigo broke Alaves' hearts after the visitors had defended firmly with just 10 men following Zou Feddal' s red card in the first minute of the second half in the Balaidos stadium.

Dairy Queen Location Shut Down After Racist Rant
Crichton also told the officer he was "fed up with black people" and continued to freely use the slur in the conversation. The owner of a Dairy Queen in IL has lost his franchise agreement after comments he reportedly made to a customer.

As the clocked ticked down, Real Madrid continued to pour forward in search of a goal.

It was not the exhausted display of a team about to fall apart under the weight of the fixture list. The three goalkeepers we have are important, they're doing well and I'm very happy with them.

Sevilla president Jose Castro has hinted sporting director Monchi may leave the club by stating "you cannot force someone to be where they don't want to".

"We had a good game, but we relaxed after scoring", Marcelo is quoted as saying by Marca.

"We knew this would happen some day".

However, the bad blood from that match boiled over as former Sevilla favourite Ramos's clash with the most fervent section of the home support continued with the Real captain roundly jeered every time he touched the ball.
