    Time:90'
    • Sevilla FC
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+3' There's the final whistle, and it's a repeat of last season's scoreline. Terrific entertainment, Real Madrid are back on top of La Liga!
    • 90+2' GOOOOLLL!! Alvaro Negredo makes it 2-6, taking the ball superbly past Casillas and firing in from a tight angle!
    • 90+1' Two minutes of stoppage time to play - they can't go quickly enough for Sevilla.
    • 89' GOOOOLL!! It's getting a little embarrassing now - Xabi Alonso squares for Hamit Altintop who nets a simple finish.
    • 88' Real Madrid look like they should have another penalty when Ronaldo is brought down trying to round Varas - but referee Clos Gomez says no foul!
    • 87' The stadium is rapidly emptying. Sevilla have not played badly by any means, though their defending has left something to be desired at times...
    • 86' Real Madrid substitution: Altintop has replaced the injured Benzema.
    • 85' GOOOLLL!! Hat-trick Ronaldo! The goalkeeper guesses correctly, diving low to his left but he cannot keep the shot out!
    • 85' Benzema is clutching his knee and will be replaced after the penalty...
    • 84' PENALTY REAL! Madrid come away on the break, Ronaldo plays it inside for Benzema and the Frenchman is hacked by Fazio as he prepares to pull the trigger. Stonewaller, but Benzema stays down...
    • 83' Alonso squares the free-kick for Lassana Diarra, who cuts back on to his left foot and drags a shot well wide.
    • 82' Caceres barges Khedira over and this is a free-kick in a promising position on the left for Real Madrid.
    • 81' Sevilla substitution: Armenteros comes on for Navarro.
    • 80' Navas stands the ball up for Kanoute, who sends his header well wide.
    • 79' Real are passing the ball around, teasing Sevilla are running the clock down. Proper frustration for the home team.
    • 78' The corner comes in for Kanoute who cannot redirect it on target.
    • 77' Jesus Navas has had a brilliant game out on the right - he delivers his umpteenth telling cross of the night and it is headed behind for a corner.
    • 76' Kanoute slashes wildly at a left-foot shot but blazes it over...
    • 74' STRAIGHT RED CARD!! Manu Del Moral slides in with a late and clumsy challenge on Arbeloa and he's off! That seems a slightly harsh decision. It was a rubbish challenge but a yellow would surely have sufficed. We're 10-a-side.
    • 73' Ronaldo is almost running around in circles with the ball at his feet. He finally lays it off to Marcelo who swictches play - and Real lose it.
    • 71' Benzema tries to measure a pinpoint through pass to Ronaldo but it just does not get there. It would have been an incredible ball if he had found him, cutting out four defenders.
    • 70' Marcelo tugs back Navas by the collar, and that's pretty silly for a player who has already been booked. Referee Clos Gomez decides not to show a second yellow card.
    • 69' GOL!! Sevilla pull one back through Jesus Navas! He drills a low shot through Sergio Ramos's legs and past Casillas from the edge of the box!
    • 67' Off comes Di Maria after a quite magnificent performance. Sami Khedira replaces him.
    • 66' GOOOOL!! And that really is it!! A classic sucker punch on the counter-attack! Benzema half-volleys a through ball for the Argentine who races towards goal and finishes with the outside of his left foot.
    • 65' Marcelo tries to nonchalantly shoulder the ball back to Casillas and nearly lets Navas in... but the keeper gets there.
    • 64' A forward's tackle by Kanoute earns him a yellow card... poor challenge from behind.
    • 63' Ronaldo hits a low shot from the edge of the box... held by Varas.
    • 62' Sevilla have certainly not given this up as a lost cause - they are still going full bore...
    • 61' Big penalty shout as Negredo goes down in the box... no dice, says referee Clos Gomez!
    • 59' Medel cracks a dipping volley from 30 yards that is just off target. Nice effort, though.
    • 58' Marcelo pretends to be hurt after a foul by Navas - clearly the waif-like winger couldn't hurt a fly...
    • 57' Xabi Alonso drills a low free-kick from long range, and it bobbles into the arms of Varas.
    • 56' Casillas saves Real again! A Navas cross is cleared as far as Rakitic, who shoots straight at the goalkeeper.
    • 55' Navas delivers another great cross, Casillas punches clear and Rakitic shoors wide from the follow-up.
    • 54' Diarra is the latest player to get booked, and that means a suspension for the Frenchman.
    • 53' Ronaldo eventually hits it, the ball comes off the wall and Varas gets there just before Di Maria.
    • 52' As with every Ronaldo free-kick, there is an interminable build-up with both sides faffing around...
    • 51' Fantastic run from Ronaldo, who is taken down in full flight by Medel. He will fancy this free-kick.
    • 49' The ball nearly drops for Negredo at the edge of the box, but his control lets him down.
    • 48' Di Maria plays another intelligent through ball to Benzema, but this time the Frenchman is offside.
    • 47' Navas crosses from the right towards Negredo but Casillas makes a good catch.
    • 46' Game on again! And if we have another 45 minutes like the first half, we'll be richly entertanied.
    • 45+2' That's half-time, and we have seen three goals and a red card! Fantastic entertainment at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan!
    • 45+1' Into stoppage time at the end of a truly breathless first half!
    • 45' An immediate change from Jose Mourinho, who brings on Raul Albiol for Jose Maria Callejon who might have scored, might not (it has been given to Callejon but I don't think he got a touch).
    • 44' PEPE IS SENT OFF!! It's a second yellow card for the centre-back for flinging an arm in the face of Negredo. That is pretty brainless stuff from Pepe, and it might have been a straight red.
    • 43' Now Benzema has the ball in the net, but he has been penalised for a handball as he controlled the ball.
    • 42' That was poor from Sevilla. If you give Cristiano Ronaldo that much space he is definitely going to score, and that's what he did.
    • 41' GOOOOOLL! CRISTIANO RONALDO!! What a goal! Sevilla do not close him down, and he absolutely smashes the ball into the top corner from 25 yards! Brillint finish, game over surely.
    • 40' Caceres has a speculative shot from the edge of the box - straight at Casillas who is in imperious form.
    • 38' Well, that's a hammer blow for Sevilla who have been terrific in this first half. They won't believe they are two goals behind, and that's not a position from which many teams get anything against Real Madrid.
    • 37' GOAL!! A long spell of patient possession sees Di Maria play the ball into the box for Callejon. The ball seems to bounce straight through and into the net - possibly with a very slight touch from Callejon. Mistake from goalkeeper Javi Varas who should have dealt with it and Real Madrid scor e against the run of play.
    • 35' Navas has one cross deflected, then another put out for a corner.
    • 34' Sevilla exerting pressure as Rakitic delivers a free-kick from the left... the flag is up for offside.
    • 33' Yellow card Sergio Ramos for an infringement on Negredo - the defender jumped a little wildly but not much more than that...
    • 32' WHAT A MISS! Manu Del Moral fails to convert Negredo's low cross from a yard out - and he will be VERY relieved to see the offside flag up!
    • 31' Sevilla manager Marcelino Garcia is yelping instructions at Medel... he's got plenty to say.
    • 30' Benzema is dropping very deep in search of the ball. I know false nines are all the rage these days, but I never had Benzema down as one...
    • 29' Ronaldo is making treatrical pushing gestures. He seems to think Fazio is roughing him up...
    • 28' Ramos plays a long diagonal ball for Callejon but it sails over the Real Madrid man's head.
    • 26' Benzema takes the ball past Caceres but cannot keep it in play and it is a goal kick.
    • 25' Real are starting to control possession and are looking increasingly comfortable.
    • 23' Di Maria is pulling the strings, and he lofts a pass to Benzema, whose shot deflects over for a corner.
    • 22' Caceres plays it down the right for Navas to chase, but this time Marcelo does his defensive duties well.
    • 21' Yellow card Ivan Rakitic for a pretty brainless hack on Di Maria, right under the nose of referee Clos Gomez.
    • 20' FAZIO! Has a great chance to head the equaliser but cannot get it on target!
    • 19' Rakitic crosses for Spahic, but Pepe makes a muscular aerial challenge to concede a corner.
    • 18' Ronaldo puts the ball behind and Sevilla get their big guns up for a corner.
    • 17' Casillas again! Springs low to his right to tip behind a Trochowski shot - a handsome effort from the German, hit with the outside of his right boot!
    • 16' Caceres looks to cross from the right but his ball into the middle is cleared by Pepe.
    • 15' Just watching another replay of that Casillas save. Please, I beg you, you have to see this save.
    • 13' It has been a pulsating start in Seville, and the home side can consider themselves very unlucky to be behind.
    • 12' AMAZING SAVE BY CASILLAS! It is played low to Del Moral who has a virtual open goal, yet somehow Casillas comes flying across his goal to make a staggering stop, tipping the ball onto the post. That is staggering.
    • 11' Can Sevilla respond? Navas plays a low cross in from the right but it is deflected through to Casillas.
    • 10' GOOOOLLL! Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid! Di Maria plays a defenc-splitting pass, Ronaldo sprints past his marker and he doesmiss chances like that (unless they are in the Clasico). Real have the lead!
    • 9' Di Maria plays a brilliant through ball to Benzema whose low shot is saved by the feet of Varas! The rebound comes to Di Maria and his shot is saved! Real burst into life!
    • 8' Ramos has to be alert to make a good challenge, but Real are under the cosh a bit here.
    • 7' It's all Sevilla early on and Navas again down the right. This time he looks for Negredo early but the striker is dispossessed.
    • 6' Great work from Navas who skips past Marcelo and crosses for Negredo, whose header is blocked.
    • 4' Early pressure from the home side - a volley deflected wide from Trochowski followed by a couple of menacing corners.
    • 3' Diarra commits the game's first foul, a fairly cynical hack.
    • 2' Ronaldo slides a fine ball through for Callejon who squares in front of goal. Oddly, Arbeloa is the man attacking it and he stays down after getting muscled out of the picture.
    • 1' Game on! Sevilla kick off, playing from right to left as we see it. The home side are in white shirts and shorts with black socks. Real in their slightly strange all-red change strip.
    • 21:00 With Barcelona at the Club World Cup, Real have a clear run to reclaim top spot after last weekend's Clasico disappointment. A point will be enough for them.
    • 20:59 Sevilla are having a decent season in fifth place, but suffered a damaging defeat at Levante last weekend. They would love to go into La Liga's winter break on a high.
    • 20:58 The injured Coentrao is out for Real Madrid, while Ozil drops to the bench. Benzema is again preferred to Higuain, and there is still no place for Kaka.
    • 20:55 In the 7pm kick-off Athletic Bilbao have seen off Real Zaragoza 2-1 with a late goal. Match report here.
