Real Madrid lose 3-2 to Sevilla in tough La Liga match

Zidane's much-changed team dictated the tempo for most of the first half, with Sevilla's set-up focusing on the pace available to them on the break.

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.

Real Madrid hit back through Mayoral after a daring cross from Asensio with 3 minutes of normal time left to play, then, deep in to injury time, Mercado gave away a penalty after a coming together with Theo.

"I wouldn't say on current form we're going into the game as underdogs".

"I think we've got a really good chance", the new Rangers manager told Sport360.

The Premier League giants are the highest scorers in this season's competition, netting 46 times thanks to their devastating attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Real maintain their position in third as they are five points above Valencia in fourth place and still have Celta Vigo and Villareal to play before the season ends.

Among other players rested by Zidane on Wednesday night were Luka Modric, Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane. "All the players I have are worthy and we came here to win".

Defeat at Sevilla last night leaves Real third in the LaLiga table and 18 points behind champions Barcelona.

But there is still the incentive of potentially pipping Atletico Madrid to second, while Sevilla will surely be looking to secure a marquee result to close out a disappointing domestic season.
