Sevilla FC Vs. Real Madrid: Final Score 1-0, Madrid Falls Again

Sevilla scored early in the first half and then stood toe-to-toe with Real Madrid for 88 minutes and knocked off the defending league champions 1-0.

Perfect start in the 2nd minute for Sevilla after earning an early corner. Piotr Trochowski came charging in to the box as if shot out of a cannon and unleashed a wicked volley shot of the delivery from the corner. Terrible marking from Madrid as Trochowski had enough space to comfortably park a large car if he'd been so inclined. Iker Casillas just stood in his net staring at his defenders in obvious displeasure.

The second half was what you'd expect with Madrid trailing. An all out assault on the Sevilla goal that saw Los Blancos getting closer and closer. Sergio Ramos missed a brilliant opportunity in the 60th minute after he managed to botch a point blank header and send the ball well off target.

Ronaldo was gifted a fantastic free kick chance in stoppage time but his shot, much like his team in general today, was off target.

The bottom line is that Madrid simply wasn't that good, but Sevilla, to their credit, never backed down, never stopped pressuring and they were able to contain the Madrid attack and create a ton of frustration for Jose Mourinho's men. The loss leaves Madrid adrift in 10th place in La Liga with only four points while their rivals Barcelona are sitting comfortably in first, eight points ahead.

This was not the way Madrid wanted to prepare for their Champions League opener in the mid-week against Manchester City.
