Real Madrid maintained their momentum in the Spanish La Liga on Sunday night with a 4-1 victory over a Sevilla side that made the match anything but simple, despite what the scoreline at the end suggested.

Nacho opened the scoring with a controversial goal before Cristiano Ronaldo added a second, only for Stevan Jovetic to pull one back for the visitors, visibly unnerving a Real Madrid side that are already feeling the pressure in the league.

However, Ronaldo added another after a break to give Real Madrid some breathing space and Toni Kroos wrapped things up in the 84th minute with a goal to make it 4-1 and give Los Blancos a precious three points.

Twitter paid tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese superstar made it 400 goals for Los Blancos after netting Real Madrid’s second, before adding another goal to his tally and making it 401 for Real Madrid in 391 games.

There was also praise for Zinedine Zidane, who made some shrewd substitutions to stifle Sevilla when needed.

Many were also impressed by Stevan Jovetic’s performance, with the Sevilla man unfortunate not to score more goals on the night.
