That defending though?
Here come the Madrid player ratings.
Real Madrid 7-3 Sevilla
93 -- It's Ramos...
And he produces a great save from Beto. How did he win the battle to take that one?
93 -- Free kick for Madrid
Modric fouled in a really dangerous area. Who gets to take this free kick? It will be the last kick of the game.
90 -- Three minutes of added time
89 -- Di Maria shot blocked
"Shoooot" rings out around the Bernabeu, desperate for an eight, but Di Maria's shot is straight into a Sevilla defender and cleared. The end is in sight.
83 -- Madrid tighten up...
....not. They might be four goals up, but they're not slowing down. Ancelotti replaces Khedira with Di Maria, while Jose Reyes comes on for Vitolo for Sevilla.
80 -- Benzema doubles up
This is mental. Madrid now have seven. The latest came from a lovely Marcelo cross and a clinical Benzema header.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR MADRID
76 -- This game needed a red
And now we've got one. Stephane M'bia raises his arm against Modric and boom, off he goes.
75 -- Rakitic blazes it over!
Ronaldo gave away the penalty - it was another soft one and possibly outside the area - but it doesn't matter, as Rakitic, on a hat-trick, fires over the bar.
74 -- Penalty to Sevilla!
72 -- No. 7 wins the race to three
Madrid make it six and Ronaldo completes his hat-trick with an effort which deflected beyond Beto, beating Bale to the treble.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR RONALDO
71 -- Madrid change
Luka Modric comes on for Isco.
68 -- Another great Lopez save
But for the Madrid 'keeper it could be 5-5. He's just made a fantastic low save to his right from Kevin Gameiro.
65 -- Here's Xabi
Xabi Alonso is back! He's replaced Asier Illarramendi.
64 -- Wonderful finish from Rakitic
Bale wants a penalty at one end, Perotti tees up a Rakitic golazo at the other. Are you keeping up with this?
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR SEVILLA!
63 -- Sevilla double change.
Diego Perotti and Kevin Gameiro replace Jairo and Carlos Bacca.
60 -- Three goal lead restored
Madrid counter again with devastating effect. Bale gets the ball on the left, crosses low and Ronaldo fires home. 5-2.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL FOR MADRID
59 -- Great stuff from Isco
He runs and he runs and he runs - all the while M'bia is pulling hims back. Great persistence and honesty from Isco, who eventually wins the free kick. (which comes to nothing)
