Much-changed Real Madrid made to suffer by Sevilla

Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane, has explained why his side lost 3-2 to Sevilla in the La Liga fixture on Wednesday night at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

"They did all they could, in the second half they scored two goals". "All the players I have are worthy and we came here to win". "Tomorrow we will be back to work, we have another game on Saturday [at home to Celta Vigo], and that's it". "We have a final [of the Champions League] on May 26 and I don't care what people think [about rotating]; I am the coach and I decide".

"We won't talk more about what we've done in the league, especially at the start when it was hard". "But he was good, like the others, above all in the second half".

Madrid were two down at half-time thanks to efforts from Wissam Ben Yedder and Miguel Layun, before Sergio Ramos missed a penalty and scored an own goal to make it 3-0. His first penalty wasn't the greatest but that happens.

With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos absent, Sergio Ramos was one Madrid star who did feature tonight - and how!

Zidane told reporters after the match, "We played better in the second half but couldn't get it done in front of the goal".

Madrid made seven changes to their starting lineup on the back of the 2-2 draw with Barcelona last weekend - a result that moved them to within three points of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

"When you look at the team we put out, it is a team which could easily have won", he said.

Sevilla have held local bragging rights over Betis for the last five seasons, winning three consecutive Europa League titles and reaching the latter stages of the Champions League in the last two years.

As the game moved into its final moments, Ramos was then unlucky to see a cross deflected off his outstretched leg and fly past Francisco Casilla in the Madrid goal.
