Real Madrid Come From Two Down To Beat Sevilla 3-2, Karim Benzema Scores Late Winner In Dramatic Scenes

​Real Madrid came from two goals down to beat Sevilla 3-2, with Karim Benzema scoring a dramatic winner deep into injury time.

​The Spanish giants stretch their lead over Sevilla to a massive 15 points following their big win on Sunday. 

That's despite Sevilla racing into a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Ivan Rakitic and Erik Lamela. 

Rakitic ​converted a free-kick in the 21st minute to open the scoring, with the ex-Tottenham man doubling his side's advantage four minutes later. 


However, after the break, Carlo Ancelotti's team hit back in stunning fashion.

Rodrygo​ pulled one back, with Nacho making it 2-2 in the 82nd minute. 

Benzema (who else?!) then popped up in the 92nd minute and brilliantly found the back of the net to secure a crucial victory.

Benzema continues to stake his claim for this year's Ballon d'Or having now scored an incredible 39 goals in all competitions this season.

Real, meanwhile, sit at the top of La Liga with 75 points on the board, 15 points clear of second-placed Barcelona and Sevilla who both have 60 points.
