Real Madrid beat Sevilla in goalfest

Oct 31 2013, 3:25am CDT | by IANS

Madrid, Oct 31 (IANS) Gareth Bale was able to put some of the doubts over his early season form behind him as he scored twice and set up two more in Real Madrid's chaotic and wildly entertaining 7-3 win over Sevilla in the Spanish La Liga.

Madrid, Oct 31 — Gareth Bale was able to put some of the doubts over his early season form behind him as he scored twice and set up two more in Real Madrid's chaotic and wildly entertaining 7-3 win over Sevilla in the Spanish La Liga.

Bale had been questioned in the press following his side's 1-2 defeat to FC Barcelona Saturday night, but he was in the starting 11 as Real Madrid entertained a Sevilla side that had not won away in their last 21 league games, reports Xinhua.

The Welshman opened the score after 13 minutes after a flowing team move. His second of the night 27 minutes later had more than a touch off a defender to wrong-foot Sevilla goalkeeper, Beto.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty to put Madrid 3-0 ahead after a foul on Isco.

The game looked to be virtually over. However Sevilla pulled a goal back from the penalty spot themselves following a foul by Sergio Ramos. Carlos Bacca got the visitors right back into the match in the 39th minute after fine work from Jairo down the Sevilla left.

Sevilla had further chances but following a save from Diego Lopez the play swept to the other end to allow Karim Benzema to make it 4-2 after 52 minutes.

Ronaldo netted his second of the night on the hour mark following a pass from Bale from the right wing. It looked all over but Rakitic's second gave Sevilla a glimmer of hope.

Ronaldo got his hat-trick when his deflected shot looped into the back of the net 20 minutes from time.

Although Sevilla could have pulled one back from the third penalty of the night, Rakitic blazed over the bar, before Benzema headed his second of the night home from close range.

Even when Sepp Blatter is right, he's wrong. On Tuesday the FIFA president quite controversially opined that Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, and not Argentina captain Lionel Messi, should have won the Golden Ball at the 2014 World Cup. "I think the decision was an incorrect one," he remarked while attending the Moscow presentation of the tournament's 2018 logo, according to Inside Spanish Football. "I was sur ...

La Liga Table Week 10: Separating Contenders from Pretenders Atop Standings

Oct 28 2014 5:46pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The old critique of La Liga in the past was that it was a two-team league, as Barcelona and Real Madrid duked it out for league titles and the honor of having the world's largest payroll.  And then last season happened and, lo and behold, Atletico Madrid made La Liga a three-club rodeo. Suddenly, things had gotten a lot more interesting atop the table.  Early in the season, five teams have started to separate from the pack in the Spanish league, b ...
