The Portuguese killer sent home a header through a pass from Isco in the 35th minute and again in the 37th minute. Ramos committed a penalty in extra time before the break which was transformed by Bacca making it 1-2. Thanks to a perfect cross from Bale who came on in the second half, Cristiano put Real back up by 2 with a sublime falling away header that beat the goalkeeper and dropped into the corner of the net. Iborra scored a second for Sevilla in the 79th minute leaving us Madridistas on edge until the very end.
