The final result was 0 - 2 to Real Madrid with goals from BENZEMA in the 13th min & CRISTIANO RONALDO in the 70th min via a penalty. Madrid had more chances than Rayo - which also had their share - & deserved the three points when looked at globally. Said this, Real Madrid still has a way to go to get to the level of last season & needs to work on all their field lines. I suppose now the priority is to get points & not to be "beautifully artistical" on the field.
|Deportivo - Sevilla FC|
DEPORTIVO A CORUÑA lost to SEVILLA FC 0 - 2. The match was very even & very contested until two thirds of the way into the match. Sevilla was slowly building up in intensity & that reached its optimum point with the opener via NEGREDO in the 75th min. Then the "man of the match" RAKITIC scored the second in the 84th min to seal the game & night for his Club. The key to the Sevilla victory was their persistence all night & the win was deserved.
