Cristiano Ronaldo has angry reaction during Sevilla clash over penalty spot dispute

Cristiano Ronaldo has angry reaction during Sevilla clash over penalty spot dispute

"This is always one of the most hard stadiums to play in but when I go on to the pitch I try and forget about these things".

Two points now separate the top three. Until now, he's been the goalkeeper of the 40 games unbeaten.

Ramos, who made his debut for Sevilla in 2004 before joining the Madrid club a year later at the age of 19, was part of an unusual Real line-up with three at the back. We were able to beat an undefeated team.

But this wasn't any other day.

Madrid's incredible unbeaten streak very almost came to an end during their Copa del Rey second leg clash against Sevilla on Thursday. The Portuguese has now found the back of the net 21 times in just 13 appearances against Sevilla.

Deportes Cuatro have released video coverage of the interaction between players during Sevilla's 2-1 shock.

Real were leading when a mix-up between Ramos and Raphael Varane led to the former diverting Pablo Sarabia's free-kick past Keylor Navas, and Sevilla ultimately won the game thanks to a late victor from Stevan Jovetic. "I wouldn't change anything from the game against Sevilla", Zidane assessed.

Japan's mini-rocket crashes, but may hold hints of the future
On Sunday, the Japanese space agency (JAXA) attempted to launch its experimental SS-520-4 rocket for the first time. Japan's attempt to launch a tiny satellite into orbit using a mini-rocket has ended up in failure.

Democratic congressman contests Alabama's Electoral College vote alleging Russian Federation interfered
Despite rumblings of a revolt, only two Republican electors — both from Texas — cast protest votes for someone other than Trump. A joint session of Congress could still opt to challenge the result and stop Donald Trump from becoming President.

Iraqi forces fight IS at Mosul University, take areas along Tigris
John Dorrian, said: "Work still needs to be done, but ISIL's days in Mosul are quickly coming to an end". Parts of the east banks of the Tigris river have also fallen into the control of the Iraqi military.

And take advantage they did. Zidane must have been confident that defeat was not an option when the final minutes approached, with Real 1-0 to the good thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty.

The equalizer came from a source close to home: Ramos, Madrid's hero in midweek and so often its late-goal savior, headed into his own net with five minutes left. This was the eighth time this season Monaco has scored at least four goals, with four of those matches away.

While an unbeaten streak like the one Madrid were on is a wildly impressive accomplishment, they also have their downsides. That seemed to be setting in to some degree for Madrid, but Zidane recognized that and pushed his team to focus and reorganize on Sunday.

Zidane downplayed the end of Madrid's unbeaten streak.

And as everyone in La Liga and much of Europe knows, a focused Real Madrid is an incredibly unsafe Real Madrid.

In la Liga, Real Madrid are playing very well as they have 12 wins and 4 draws so far this season (as they remain undefeated).

Ronaldo, who has scored 13 goals in his last five home games against Celta Vigo, has featured in 24 of Real's 30 matches in all competitions this season, notching 25 goals along the way, but could be given a rare night off.

Last defeated in April of 2016, Real Madrid went on a 40-game win streak, putting them first in La Liga through the middle of January.
