Sergio Ramos takes centre in Real loss



Sergio Ramos missed a penalty and scored an own goal before converting a late spot-kick in Real Madrid’s loss to Sevilla

An eventful night for Sergio Ramos saw Real Madrid miss the chance to go second in La Liga as they were beaten 3-2 by Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Strikes from Wissam Ben Yedder (26) and Miguel Layun (45) gave Joaquin Caparros’ side a commanding lead at the break, and Ramos then deflected Gabriel Mercado’s cross into his own net to extend the hosts’ lead (84) after seeing his penalty come back off the underside of the crossbar earlier in the second half (54).
Substitute Borja Moyoral headed in Marco Asensio’s centre to reduce the deficit before Ramos made amends with what proved to be a consolation as he converted his second penalty deep into stoppage time (90+5).
The result means Sevilla are two points clear of Getafe in seventh place as they bid to secure a Europa League place for next season. Meanwhile, Real remain three points behind Atletico Madrid with two games remaining.
