Real captain Sergio Ramos told after the game he was happy with the performance of his team and thanked the fans for sticking with the team even though the season has not been perfect for the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid fans had to wait long for the home side to break the deadlock. Casemiro eventually rewarded Madrid’s dominance in the 78th minute with a wonderful curled shot from outside the box. Luka Modric added a second goal in stoppage time, finishing the score at 2-0. Because of the win Madrid jump into third place, leapfrogging Sevilla on the table.
Ramos played his 450th game in LaLiga and was happy to collect the win. “We needed to rediscover our best form. You can see today it was an outstanding performance. We dominated throughout the game and scored two goals, but the second goal came late. We could have added more, had we been a bit better in front of goal.”
“But we needed to win – and to win in style. It was a good win for our fans. We always feel connected with the fans in the stands. I called for the fans because we are stronger when we are together. You have to keep that call alive so people keep believing in our play. I believe that the fans can go home happy today.”
