Real Madrid’s 40-match unbeaten run has now ended as ex-Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic scored an explosive-time winner for Sevilla.
Cristiano Ronaldo was able to get a penalty kick giving Real Madrid side the advantage.
Sergio Ramos’ late own goal leveled the scores.
Substitute Jovetic had a dramatic late goal to give Real Madrid .
This is Real’s first defeat since April 6th 2015, which means their lead at the top of La Liga has been cut to one point. Sevilla move above Barcelona to second in the table.
The flow of the match seemed to favor Real Madrid’s side early on, but their downfall started when Ramos, who had upset Sevilla fans three days earlier with his goal celebration in their Copa del Rey last 16 tie headed into his own net while attempting to clear Pablo Sarabia’s set-piece.
Real were rattled and Jovetic’s fine strike after Real had lost the ball from a throw-in was celebrated wildly by the home fans in the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Real Madrid are still on top of the La Liga table, set to be the champions of Spain for the first time in five years.
But this result will fill Barcelona with hope of overtaking their arch-rivals, with just two points separating them as the season approaches its midway point.
