Once again, Real Madrid showed off its experience to win against Sevilla FC. On the lawn of the Santiago-Bernabéu and on behalf of the eleventh day of La Liga, the people of Madrid defeated the Sevillians for the thirteenth consecutive time in fourteen home confrontations in the league (3-1). Ballon d’Or in 2018, Luka Modric opened the scoring and honored his teammate Karim Benzema in the best way, unavailable for the meeting but signaled by all the public by brandishing his freshly won Ballon d’Or. In the general classification, Real Madrid temporarily takes a six-point lead over FC Barcelona.
Stoppage for Benzema, package against Sevilla
11 HOURS AGO
It was a rainy evening in Madrid, but the skies of the Spanish capital no doubt wanted to cry to pay tribute to their iconic number 9. Dressed in civilian clothes and winner of the 2022 Ballon d’Or, Benzema happily reinforced his trophy in front of the merengue socios all won over to the cause of their champion. All smiles, KB9 shared his moment of glory with Thibaut Courtois, voted best goalkeeper of the year and a starter for Los Blancos after recovering.

Real’s bench made the difference
In this magical evening, Real Madrid made Real Madrid, namely to score in the important moments of the match. From the first minutes, Vinicius Junior escaped on the left flank to offer Modric a caviar against the empty goal. Clever, the Croatian did not miss the target (1-0, 5th).
Dominating throughout the first period but unable to double the bet by David Alaba (19th) or the untenable Vinicius (44th), Real Madrid let their opponent come back to score on a 100% Argentinian action with Gonzalo Montiel at the passes Décideur and Erik Lamela at the finish (1-1, 54th). While Real have still not managed to keep a clean sheet at home in a La Liga game this season, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have found the key to winning thanks to starters Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.
The last city, served by a decidedly brilliant Vinicius, put his team back in front of the scoreboard (2-1, 81st) then Federico Valverde sent a missile in the goal of Yassine Bounou to kill the suspense (3-1 , 83rd). Too strong, Real continues to impress in this calendar year. And it’s not Benzema’s Ballon d’Or that will suggest otherwise…
