HT: REAL MADRID 2-2 SEVILLA
Real Madrid drew with Sevilla in a dramatic encounter at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.
Real thought they opened the scoring in the first few minutes of first half with Karim Benzema’s header but Alvaro Odriozola, who provided the cross, was caught offside by VAR.
Sevilla opened the scoring after 22 minutes when a cross from Jesus Navas from the right flank found Ivan Rakitic, who headed the ball down to Fernando and the midfielder beat Thibaut Courtois with a fine shot.
Real equalised in the second half with Marco Asensio just a few seconds after his introduction to the match on 67 minutes.
Los Blancos thought they got a penalty when Yassine Bounou brought Benzema down inside the box but VAR showed that Eder Militao handed the ball in his own box during the build-up.
Rakitic took the shot and beat Courtois with ease after 78 minutes.
It seemed like Sevilla had it all under control but Toni Kroos’ long-range shot got a deflection off Diego Carlos and beat Bounou to make it all even in the fourth minute of stoppage time
