  • 90' + 3'
  • 90' + 1'
    Sevilla have paid the penalty for a lack of ambition in the game. They have waited too long to make their attacking subsitutions and Madrid simply picked them off when they were going for their equaliser.

  • 81'
  • 80'
    Sevilla really need to go for it now and are bringing on Perotti for Romaric, who will be more dynamic down the left hand side. Perhaps they should have made these attacking changes sooner.
  • 78'
    Bad decision from the assistant referee after flagging Ronaldo offside when the Portuguese was through on goal, despite the fact he was in line with the Sevilla defence.
  • 77'
    The open game is seeying the attacking players getting some more room in the final third. Ronaldo and Di Maria have also switched wings and will be looking to hit the by line.
  • 75'
    Sevilla are piling on the pressure at the moment and Los Blancos are having to deal with a number of set-pieces.
  • 73'
    The play is very open now and for the first time in the game Jesus Navas is finding some space down the right hand side.
  • 71'
    HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUY ! Benzema misses from a yard after attempting to glance in a shot from Ronaldo with his head !
  • 70'
    SubstitutionIvan Rakitic Luis Fabiano

    Great save from Javi Varas ! Denying Di Maria after the Argentinian blasts the ball with his left foot to the near post !

    Another opportunity for a Ronaldo freekick after Sanchez brings down the Portuguese just on the edge of the Sevilla box.
  • 64'
    Yellow Card Xabi Alonso
  • 63'
    Sevilla have had a number of opportunities at getting good crosses in to the box from set plays. However Romaric has been very disappointing with his delivery.
  • 61'
    Good, powerful run from Sami Khedira down the left hand side which earns Real Madrid the corner. The game is fairly end to end at the moment.
  • 59'
    The referee has been very picky when whistling for fouls when the ball is in the air at set-pieces.
  • 58'
    Good play from Sevilla with Kanoute robbing Xabi Alonso of the ball in midfield and sending Negrdo just to the right of the goal in which the Spaniard earns the corner.
  • 55'
    The Real Madrid defenders appear to be double marking Freddy Kanoute at set-pieces, very good decision after the amount of joy the Sevilla forward had in the air in the first half.
  • 53'
    Sevilla are having trouble retaining possession of the ball, Negredo and Kanoute have not figured in the second half so far.
  • 51'
    Real Madrid players Sergio Ramos and Sami Khedira involved in a nasty head clash in which the German needs treatment off the field.
  • 49'
    Yellow Card Didier Zokora
  • 49'
    Real Madrid are much more urgent in the second half and have heightened the tempo of their play.
  • 47'
    Benzema manages to get in a brilliant position in the left hand side of the Sevilla box but wants one touch too many and a heavy touch sends the ball out for a goal kick.
  • 46'
    Only a minute into the second half and Real Madrid have made a very quick start. They are pressing the Sevilla players relentlessly.
  • 45'
    The second half has now kicked off and all to play for in this second half. Extra time and penalties still remain a possibility.
  • The first half has came to an end. Real Madrid still lead the game on aggregate but Sevilla are most definetly still in with a shout. Join us in 15 minutes for the second half !
  • 44'
    Javi Varas has not been tested on too many occasions but looked sharp when palming away an Arbeloa shot, however the Real Madrid defender was eventually ruled as offside anyway.
  • 42'
    Both teams are getting slightly nervous at sending alot of men forward. They look as if they will both settle for 0-0 at half time.
  • 41'
    Yellow Card Martín Cáceres
  • 40'
    The game is getting slightly heated at the moment , the Sevilla players feel they are being slightly hard done by and their protesting has earned Caceres a booking.
  • 38'
    The away side have had a couple of moments of possession in the Madrid box, with Negredo and Rakitic getting in to good positions, but they have simply been outnumbered by the defenders.
  • 37'
    Yellow Card Fernando Navarro
  • 37'
    Sevilla have been fairly solid defensively so far in the game, but they will need to add to their attacking options if they are to level the aggregate score.
  • 34'
    Great pressing from Sevilla , forcing a rushed clearance from Raul Albiol. Perhaps one team can gain a vital first goal going in to half time.
  • 32'
    Sevilla are retaining possession better in the game now but are still having difficulties getting in behind the Madrid defence.
  • 30'
    Cristiano Ronaldo misses a great chance for Real Madrid ! Di Maria sending the Portuguese through who cannot manage to put the ball by replacement Sevilla goalkeeper Javi Varas !
  • 28'
    The game has lost its high tempo and intensity slightly now and both teams are being fairly wasteful in possession.
  • 26'
    Sevilla are pressing the ball very well and are putting pressure on the Real Madrid defenders which is making them produce long passes to Benzema which the Frenchman is having trouble getting control of.
  • 23'
    Freddy Kanoute has moved slightly higher up the pitch now and has the beating of the Real Madrid defenders in the air.
  • 21'
    Disappointing from Ronaldo as he easily clears the wall but is unable to get any dip on the shot to bother Varas.
  • 20'
    Foul on Benzema and Ronaldo has his first opportunity at a freekick at the Sevilla goal.
  • 18'
    The game is following the same patern as the first leg, only there is a role reversal of the teams. Real Madrid are enjoying most of the opening possession and are pressing for a goal, but up to now the Sevilla players have been very solid in their defending and are looking to create some counter attacks.
  • 16'
    Albiol is very lucky not to conceed an own goal after slicing a clearance which spins inches wide of the Real Madrid post !
  • 14'
    Sevilla are essentially playing with a five man midfield. Kanoute is characteristically coming very deep to get the ball , and as a result, Negredo is left as a lone striker.
  • 12'
    Real Madrid are playing a very high line at the moment, almost up to the half way line. They must be very wary as the pace of Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo is a definite threat.
  • 10'
    Alvaro Negredo manages to get through on goal for Sevilla and very smartly lobs Iker Casillas because but the Spaniard is very unlucky as he is wrongly flagged as offside.
  • 8'
    Sevilla with just a bit of a break now after an early rush at goal from Real Madrid. It has been relentless attacking from Los Blancos up until this point.
  • 6'
    Great play by the Real Madrid front line as Benzema smartly lays the ball off in midfield to the onrunning Ozil who drives forward and lays off Ronaldo who fires a shot just by the left hand post.
  • 4'
    HUUUUUUUUUUUUY ! Angel Di Maria cuts in from the right hand side and smashes a low shot at Varas which cannons of the post to the feet of Benzema which the Frenchman hits first time by the post !
  • 2'
    Cristiano Ronaldo has already had a couple of moments of possession for Real Madrid but was wasteful with an overhit cross and a very ambitious long range shot.
