Real Slumps to Third After Second-Straight Defeat

MOST COMMENTED

Real Madrid followed up its 4-3 defeat to Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Sunday with a 2-1 loss at Sevilla on Wednesday, a result that sees Los Blancos fall to third in the La Liga standings after having been top of the league less than a week ago. Real went ahead through a deflected Cristiano Ronaldo free kick in the first half, but two goals either side of halftime from Sevilla’s Carlos Bacca condemned Carlo Ancelotti’s men to a second-straight defeat. Real has now picked up just three points from away games against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, Barca, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal.

"Obviously it is more difficult now,” Ancelotti said of the title race following Wednesday’s loss. “We are behind but it is not impossible. It will affect us and it is a bit strange. I have said a lot of times that the difficult moment would arrive and here it is.” The Italian added: "We need character and personality from everyone so that we can respond quickly. It is tougher now as all the games are important."
