Sevilla FC vs. Real Madrid

A much-changed Real Madrid side suffered a 3-2 defeat against Sevilla on Wednesday, on a night to forget for their captain.

Though Zinedine Zidane rested most of his players for the tie but only a few first team starters like Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema and Casemiro were present in the match.

Sevilla continued to attack Real Madrid for the second goal of the night as Clement Lenglet's header went off the target.

Goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Miguel Layun gave Sevilla a two-goal lead before the break.

"I think we go in with every confidence and belief that we can get the job done". "I've experienced it, you can beat them".

"We've talked to the players a lot as a group and individuals, we've told them they are very good and they're used to playing in finals and we told them today was like a final", said Sevilla coach Caparros.

Export growth was led by a 20.7 percent increase in shipments of high-tech products, led by mobile phone exports. For January-April, it rose to US$80.4 billion, compared with about US$71 billion in the same period a year ago .

Zidane made eight changes from the side that drew 2-2 to FC Barcelona in the Clasico this weekend, offering fringe players the opportunity to impress, while resting key stars ahead of the UEFA Champions League final.

"Being at Real Madrid is big, but it's hard to have minutes".

"We won't talk more about what we've done in the league, especially at the start when it was hard". "We have a Champions League final coming up, I'm the coach and I decide".

Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and Dani Carvajal all missed out through injury, Gareth Bale was suspended and Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Keylor Navas and Marcelo were rested. "He played well, like everyone else, especially in the second half".

Real Madrid have since turned their attention to Saturday's match against Celta, the last game this season at the Bernabéu.
