Real Madrid produced another stunning second-half comeback as they overturned a two-goal deficit to beat Sevilla 3-2 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Two quickfire goals from Ivan Rakitic and Erik Lamela in the first half left Carlo Ancelotti’s men staring at a defeat against Los Nervionenses.

However, the team rallied after the break as substitute Rodrygo Goes pulled a goal back in the 50th minute before fellow substitute Nacho equalised with less than ten minutes left to play.

And, when it mattered the most, Karim Benzema stepped up again to dispatch a stoppage-time winner. The result sees Real Madrid strengthen their grip at the top of the La Liga standings, stretching their lead to 15 points over second-placed Barcelona.

Speaking after the game, Nacho, who came on to score a goal, commented on the performance, saying (h/t DAZN):

“A win doesn’t mean more than three points. There are still a lot of matches left, but given how the match was, it’s very important. We performed better in the second half.”

The defender insisted that the result made the team happy, but insisted that it does not mean that their job is done.

“The way we won the three points is very complicated and we are very happy. This does not resolve anything yet,” he said.

Speaking of the goals that Real Madrid conceded in the first half, the Spaniard said: “The first goal we conceded was because of us, I don’t know how to tell you. Sevilla put a lot of pressure and played better in the first half.”

There was a contentious moment during the game when Vinicius Junior had a goal surprisingly chalked off for a handball.

Expressing his bewilderment over why the decision went against Real Madrid, Nacho said: “Vinicius’ goal should have counted. I saw it on the screen.”

Finally, Nacho also touched upon the club’s La Liga title chances, stating: “It got a little closer. With each passing round, the advantage becomes greater for us.”

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
