Karim Benzema seals Real Madrid rally over Sevilla with late winner

Karim Benzema scored a dramatic late winner to seal a 3-2 win for Real Madrid over Sevilla after the LaLiga leaders had gone two goals down in the first half on the road on Sunday.

First-half goals from Ivan Rakitic and Erik Lamela set the hosts on their way, but Rodrygo,

Nacho and the rampant Benzema scored in the second half to hand Carlo Ancelotti's side an unlikely win.

The result puts presumptive LaLiga champions Real Madrid 15 points ahead of second-placed Barcelona,

who have a game Monday and another game in hand, while Los Blancos have six matches left to play.

"It doesn't mean a lot more than three points, that's the reality," Nacho said after the match. 

"There's still a lot of league at stake, but at this ground, this opponent, how the game was at half-time, it's fundamental for our morale. In the second half we were much, much better.

"They're three very important points, above all with the way we won them. The team showed a lot of character, with a difficult scoreline here

We're very happy, they're three points, but it doesn't mean anything yet."

It was a tale of two halves as Sevilla dominated the first, but disappeared after the break in a match that was marked by several controversial decisions by referee Guillermo Cuadra.

He declined to show Real's Eduardo Camavinga a second yellow card for a foul from behind on Anthony Martial after 37 minutes.
