Sevilla 0-1 Real Madrid: A Bono own goal saves Zidane blushes

Vinicius Junior forced an own goal from Sevilla goalkeeper Bono as Real Madrid eased the pressure on Zinedine Zidane with a 1-0 win at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The Spanish champions came into this match on the back of successive defeats to Alaves and Shakhtar Donetsk, heaping the pressure on Zidane who is widely seen to be fighting for his job at the Santiago Bernabeu.

An uneventful first half faded after Vinicius Junior came close to opening the scoring in the first minute, with Rodrygo finding his countryman with a pass inside. Vinicius struck across the face of goal and inches wide of the far post.

Sevilla started the second half well following the introduction of Oliver Torres, but Real Madrid took the lead against the run of play, with Vinicius stretching to get on the end of a Ferland Mendy cross, forcing the mistake from Bono.

As things stand

With the three points, Real Madrid have now moved to third on the log with 20 points, four off Atleti at the top. Sevilla are now sixth with 16 points, with a game in hand.
