A feisty game with high levels of intensity from start to finish ended 1-1 after an own goal from David Alaba, followed a few minutes later by Dani Carvajal’s first goal of the season to make it equal.
Sergio Ramos was at the centre of affairs as expected in his first appearance against his old club since he left in 2021, as he squared up to German Centre-Back Antonio Rüdiger and saved his side from going behind to a shot from Alaba which looked certain to be a goal.Embed from Getty Images
Things got very heated in the final few minutes of the match when almost every player on the pitch got involved in a brawl in the Sevilla penalty area.Embed from Getty Images
Los Blancos had a few chances in the opening stages of the game, but it was Sevilla who had the majority of chances, dominating play and causing a lot of problems for the league leaders.
Real Madrid seemed to open the scoring early with an awkward goal from Federico Valverde following a mistake from Norwegian goalkeeper Ørjan Håskjold Nyland, but it was ruled out by VAR.Embed from Getty Images
A bizarre moment occurred when the referee blew the whistle but Bellingham and Rodrygo continued to play on and score, but play was brought back for a foul.
Sevilla had a huge chance where Carvajal cleared at shot off the line. Youssef En-Nesyri had the chance to put Sevilla ahead but put his shot just wide – a chance that you would expect the Moroccan striker to put away comfortably.
After two VAR interventions denied Real Madrid from two goals, Sevilla gained a well-earned point.
