Goodbye

What a day of drama at the top of La Liga. Neymar's second goal in Barcelona's 3-0 win over Villarreal was a moment of beauty. Then Sergio Ramos scores a spectacular goal for Real Madrid, who then go on to lose for the first time in the league. Cancel all plans on 21 November. El Clasico is not to be missed. Until then...

Sevilla 3-2 Real Madrid

What does this result do for Sevilla? Unai Emery's side started the day closer to the relegation zone than the top but the Europa League champions climb three places to 10th on the back of this result.

So, Barcelona open up a three point lead at the top of the table ahead of their trip to the Bernabeu on 21 November. Rafael Benitez has his work cut out during the international break. The trouble is many of his players will be away with their countries.

Has anyone spotted Cristiano Ronaldo? I can't remember a game where he has made so little impact. Sevilla are cruising to the finishing line. 

Sevilla 3-1 Real Madrid

Five minutes for Real Madrid to find two goals to preserve their unbeaten league start. It's not looking good for Rafa...

They've already beaten Barcelona at home and now they're on the cusp of sending Real Madrid crashing to a first league defeat. This will be Sevilla's fourth successive home win in La Liga. Their domestic season is coming together nicely after a poor start.

Sevilla 3-1 Real Madrid

Anyone who questions the quality of Sergio Ramos should just consider how shambolic Real Madrid's defence has been without him.

Too many Real players have had an off day. Ronaldo and Bale have hardly got going this half while the back four, so strong this season, has been woeful.

Sevilla 3-1 Real Madrid

Absolutely no sign of a comeback from Real. Indeed, Sevilla look as though they might add to their lead.

Is Real Madrid's reign at the top of La Liga over? Suicidal defending allows Fernando Llorente to head home unmarked from six yards. Rafael Benitez's side are staring at their first league defeat.

Twenty minutes remaining. The home crowd have already started celebrating. Far too early for all that. Cristiano Ronaldo has been anonymous for most of this but is starting to pepper the Sevilla goal.

Let's take a look at the 'as it stands' table. If the score stays like this Barcelona will go into the international break with a three points lead at the top.

Real Madrid had only conceded four goals in 10 La Liga games before this. They've conceded two in the space of 25 minutes against Sevilla.

What a turnaround. Sevilla were on the ropes in the first half but now it's unbeaten Real Madrid who are on the floor.

Another cleverly worked goal sends the hosts into a deserved lead, Yevhen Konoplyanka the architect with Ever Banega providing the low close range finish.

Attack, attack, attack...Steven Nzonzi fires an excellent cross into the Real area and Ciro Immobile fancies another stab at glory. This time it goes horribly wrong for the Sevilla striker. He had options either side of him in better goalscoring positions.

Sevilla 1-1 Real Madrid

Remember when Real were bossing this? It already seems a long time ago. This game is on a knife-edge and is doing little for Rafael Benitez's nerves. The Real Madrid boss is pacing his technical area with a concerned look on his face.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has had few chances so far. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad for Sevilla. Surely an opportunity is going to fall his way before the final whistle.

Sevilla 1-1 Real Madrid

Lively start by Sevilla who are carrying on from where they left off in the first half. Pepe makes a vital block from Vitolo as the hosts, roared on by a partisan crowd, look to go ahead for the first time.

Missed BBC Sport's interview with Cristiano Ronaldo?

The Real Madrid striker says he is the best footballer in the world and comparable with the game's all-time greats.

"I don't need to say 'I'm in the history of football, I'm a legend'. The numbers say everything," he said. 

You can watch the interview on the BBC Sport website.

HALF-TIME

Sevilla 1-1 Real Madrid

Excellent entertainment. Real Madrid were in control for most of the half but tyhe hosts have come roaring back. As it stands, Barcelona will be going into El Clasico two points ahead of Real at the top of the table.

CLOSE!

This is a cracker. End to end, poor defending from both teams...there's more goals in this. Real survive another scare before powering forward through Casemiro who goes so close with a thumping drive.

CLOSE!

Sevilla 1-1 Real Madrid

How did he miss that?

Eight-yards out Ciro Immobile somehow manages to miss the target after the ball bobbles towards him. Real have suddenly forgotten how to defend but how costly will that miss prove? A huge let off for the team that started the weekend on top of the table.

Sevilla 1-1 Real Madrid

You can bet that goal was celebrated loudly in the bars of Barcelona. For the first time in this match, Real have a battle on their hands.

Where did that come from? Sevilla have been on the back foot for most of this but find themselves level after Real switch off at a corner allowing Ciro Immobile to hook home from close range. The Italian takes his shirt off in celebration and is booked. He doesn't care and neither do Sevilla's fans.

SUBSTITUTION

Sergio Ramos can go on no longer. Having injured his shoulder while scoring, Ramos tries to carry on but is finally forced to concede defeat. On comes Raphael Varane.

Gareth Bale is getting closer and closer to marking his return with a goal. He forces another save with a long distance attempt. The visitors are bossing the Europa League champions.

CLOSE!

Sevilla 0-1 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo would have been proud of Ramos's finish. A real beauty. But here come Sevilla. Benoit Tremoulinas whips in a terrific cross and it needs an interception from Pepe to prevent Ciro Immobile from equalising against the run of play.

Gareth Bale is presented with a great chance to double the lead but his shot is beaten away. Sevilla, to be frank, haven't turned up.

It's been coming. The only surprise is the source of Real Madrid's opener. Sergio Ramos produces a spectacular overhead kick to give his side the lead following a corner. He is hurt is the process and requires treatment to his shoulder. Another special goal after Neymar's brilliant effort for Barcelona earlier.

Sevilla 0-0 Real Madrid

A rare Sevilla counter but Sergio Ramos is at his best as he prevents Ciro Immobile from getting his shot away.

One way traffic. Wave after wave of Real pressure. Surely this isn't going to be goalless for much longer.

PENALTY APPEAL

Gareth Bale with another cross which appears to strike the arm of Sevilla's Grzegorz Krychowiak. Real's players scream for a penalty but the referee is not interested. Sevilla are playing a dangerous game and are allowing Real's midfield to dominate.

Sevilla 0-0 Real Madrid

Impressive start by Rafael Benitez's side. Bright, sharp, lively and close to scoring. Sevilla are struggling to get out of their own half.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Cristiano Ronaldo cannot stop scoring against Sevilla and he almost has another to add to his collection with a shot deflected behind for a corner. Moments later Nacho rattles the woodwork with a fierce 20-yard strike. Real are well up for this.
