Lopetegui: Sevilla were superior to Real Madrid

Lopetegui: Sevilla were superior to Real Madrid

Bale was kept out by a fine save from Tomas Vaclik when one-on-one just after the hour mark, and Modric was withdrawn as Lopetegui looked to avoid further damage ahead of El Derbi.

Lionel Messi couldn't add to his 595 goals in his 700th appearance with Barcelona, including 55 non-official games.

The home side were on fire from the start and Blancos keeper Thibaut Courtois was tested just 13 seconds after the kick-off when Andre Silva tried his luck.

Eden Hazard and Emerson scored the goals for Chelsea.

"In the league these things happen, but what we're going to do is get up and prepare for the game with maximum intensity".

Barca's comfortable hold on the game dramatically fell apart shortly after the interval when Nabil El Zhar headed home a looping cross in the 52nd minute and 20-year-old Oscar Rodriguez turned in a second goal barely 60 seconds later to the joy of the 12,000 fans crammed into the Butarque stadium.

The Sun (29 May, page 50) claimed that Wolves were even ready to pay a club-record £27 million for Silva, who had struggled to make an impact since swapping Porto for AC Milan in the summer of 2017.

Y es un régimen que podría ser combatido fácilmente si las fuerzas armadas decidieran hacerlo. Según Maduro , el gobierno norteamericano aprobó estas sanciones porque no puede con él.

"It'd be opportunistic to say we didn't prepare for the game adequately but it looks like that was the case", continued Lopetegui, whose Madrid must pick themselves up for Saturday's derby against Atletico Madrid.

2 - If Zinedine Zidane had a reputation as a "hand-clap" manager, the sight of Lopetegui impotently doing the same at 2-0 down did not suggest a coach in control: He was completely outclassed by his opposite number Machin, whose five-man midfield and high press annihilated Madrid. Messi has 58 fewer matches than Andres Iniesta with Barcelona.

Madrid were therefore handed the chance to move top of the table but they instead suffered a first league loss under Julen Lopetegui in stunning style in Seville.

"We have to pick ourselves up, we have another important game in three days so we congratulate Sevilla and recognise we have not played how we wanted".

MF Sergio Busquets, 5 - One of the poorest performances in recent memory from Barcelona's metronome. It was the first league loss for Athletic, which was coming off three straight draws. At 1-0 you're close to an accident.

"But obviously it is easy now to talk about the rotations - in the end, matches are analysed on results - but you can't win the league with only eleven players".

Valencia is yet to win in seven matches in all competitions this season.
