Sevilla end Real Madrid’s 40 game unbeaten run

(UDHAYAM, SPAIN) – Real Madrid’s 40-match unbeaten run was brought to an end as ex-Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner for title rivals Sevilla.

Cristiano Ronaldo had put the visitors ahead with a penalty after Dani Carvajal had been fouled by Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

Sergio Ramos’ late own goal against his former club levelled the scores.

Substitute Jovetic beat Kaylor Navas from distance to win it.

Navas, who appeared to be out of position, did get a hand on Jovetic’s effort but could not stop it from hitting the net.

Real’s first defeat since 6 April means their lead at the top of La Liga has been cut to one point, although Zinedine Zidane’s side have a game in hand over their title rivals.

Sevilla move above Barcelona to second in the table.
