Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has expressed his relief for fans who can go back home happy after they beat Sevilla in convincing fashion at the Santiago Bernabeu and moved up to third place in the La Liga table.
Sevilla were ahead of Madrid despite being level on points and the clash between the two teams was going to determine who would stake their claim for third place in the league standings. Although Madrid were lucky not to be behind by the end of the second half, they were by far the better side in the second period and Ramos was happy with the team’s performance.
“We needed to rediscover our best form. You can see today it was an outstanding performance,” Ramos said, according to Goal.
“We dominated throughout the game and scored two goals, but the second goal came late. We could have added more, had we been a bit better in front of goal.
“But we needed to win – and to win in style. It was a good win for our fans. We always feel connected with the fans in the stands.
“I called for the fans because we are stronger when we are together. You have to keep that call alive so people keep believing in our play.
“I believe that the fans can go home happy today.”
The Los Blancos have struggled for consistency this season, which has seen them find themselves 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona, with a minimal chance of challenging for the title this season.
