Real Madrid didn't need too much time to bounce back from their weekend disappointment as they bagged an convincing home win over Sevilla on Wednesday.
Eager to redeem themselves after that disappointing defeat in El Classico. Los Blancos immediately put the pressure on their opponent and it took them only 14 minutes before getting in front, through their summer signing, Gareth Bale. Bale got his name on the score sheet again when his deflected free kick ended up at the back of Sevilla's net on 27 minutes. Cristiano Ronaldo netted from the spot kick on 32 minutes, but the match just got interesting as moments later, Sevilla pulled one goal back from Ivan Rakitic's spot kick on 38 minutes, before Carlos Bacca made it 3-2 with his effort two minutes later.
Los Blancos were not going to throw away their lead as after the break, they netted for more goals, with Karim Benzema netting a brace on 53 and 80 minutes, while Ronaldo completing his hat-trick by netting two goals on that second period, scoring on 60 and 71 minutes. Sevilla themselves only managed to add one more goal with another effort from Rakitic on 63 minutes.
