A late comeback from Real Madrid helped them defeat Sevilla
Comeback Kings Real Madrid writes another fairytale in La Liga
Be it Sergio Ramos’ goal against Atletico Madrid in 2014 or Ronaldo's hat-trick against Wolfsburg in 2016 or be it their comeback against Sevilla on Sunday, Real Madrid has proved time and time again that they are the kings of comeback! In 2018, when it was more or less confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave, there were a lot of doubts and commotion whether the club will be the same or not! It’s a different question whether it’s still the same or not but even after the departure of Ronaldo and Ramos, the club is making epic comebacks and creating history.
There was a time when Fergie time was replaced by Ramos time! Week in and week out, the Spanish defender scored some brilliant late goals and used to change the complexation of the match. Now, change Ramos to Benzema and you would see there’s no difference at all. After a epic comeback against Chelsea, Real Madrid did the unthinkable and came from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Sevilla in their home turf.
Sevilla didn’t lose a single game at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this year. The kind of start they got, it was pretty clear that they would keep the streak alive but things changed completely in the second half. Ivan Rakitic’s free-kick in the 21st minute gave Sevilla the much needed lead and Eric Lamela made it 2-0 just 4 minutes after the first goal. The chaos in the defence gave Lamela an easy chance to convert and the Argentine made no mistake whatsoever.
In the second half, it was a different Real Madrid altogether. The players pushed hard right from the start and scored the much needed goal in the 50th minute when Carvajal provided a brilliant ball to Rodrygo and the young Brazilian finished it clean to bring back Los Blancos in the match. A controversy broke in the 76th minute when Vinicius Junior’s goal was ruled out after VAR called it a handball. The team and the player didn’t agree with the decision as they were left frustrated. Not for long though, as the stand-in captain Nacho scored Real’s second to bring Real Madrid into the match. 10 minutes later, in stoppage time, Karim Mustafa Benzema scored a brilliant goal and won it for his club!
PSG, Chelsea, Sevilla – three epic comebacks for Real Madrid and the management will be delighted how good the team has been so far. There’s a perfect mix of youth and experience and that has been the USP of the team. With 75 points from 32 games, Real Madrid is most likely to lift the La Liga trophy as the second placed Barcelona are 15 points behind the league leaders with 2 games in hand.
