WATCH: MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
SEVILLA 3-2 REAL MADRID
Sevilla hold on for the win as the final whistle blows. The hosts deserve their victory, but they made hard work of it in the end as Borja Mayoral and Sergio Ramos reduced the arrears in the final few minutes.
But it's back-to-back wins now for Joaquín Caparrós' side in their quest to clinch a Europa League place.
Real miss the chance to move level on points with Atletico Madrid in second place as an under-strength team couldn't quite cancel out goals from Wissam Ben Yedder, Miguel Layun and Gabriel Mercado.
GOAL! SEVILLA 3-2 REAL MADRID (Ramos pen, 90+6)
Ramos does the same thing with his run-up, stopping and then starting again, but this time he strokes the ball into the bottom corner.
SEVILLA 3-1 REAL MADRID
90+4: PENALTY REAL MADRID!
Mateo Lahoz has given Madrid a penalty for a push off the ball inside the box on Theo Hernandez from Mercado. He can see everything that's going on. It was instigated by Theo! Yellow card for Escudero.
WATCH: MAYORAL'S CONSOLATION
SLIGHTLY HARSH ON RAMOS...
WATCH: MERCADO MAKES IT THREE
90: We're into five minutes of additional time.
GOAL! SEVILLA 3-1 REAL MADRID (Mayoral, 87)
Consolation for Real Madrid as Borja Mayoral rises above Pareja to meet Marco Asensio's cross from the right to plant his firm header low to Soria's right and into the net.
SEVILLA 3-0 REAL MADRID
86: SAVE! Madrid will keep coming forward as Mayoral forces Soria into a save low down. It's only the second time he's had to be called upon. You can understand why he's keeping out Sergio Rico at present.
GOAL! SEVILLA 3-0 REAL MADRID (Mercado, 84)
Game, set and match. Mercado gets to the byline beyond Theo Hernandez. He tries to find a team-mate inside the box but the cross loops off the out-strethced left boot of Sergio Ramos and flies into the roof of the net from a tight angle. He'll be claiming that, Mercado!
SEVILLA 2-0 REAL MADRID
83: BOOKED! Sergio Ramos has his card on his return to Andalusia. Layun tries to break clear, he turns his body and the ball hits his arm.
82: SUB! Ben Yedder is off with cramp it seems as Carrico takes his place for the final 10 minutes or so.
79: SUB! Roque Mesa is on for Franco Vazquez. His moustache still superb, since he made a bet he'd only shave it off when he broke into the Spanish national team during his days at Las Palmas. The moustache is still there.
78: CLOSE! Real are targeting the Sevilla left flank increasingly with Lucas finding Casemiro lurking on the edge of the box.
It's a firm and crisp strike from the Brazilian, he couldn't have wished to have struck this cleaner, but it whistles past the post!
76: CHANCE! This is the first thing Escudero has done wrong all night as he commits himself too easily to the challenge and is beaten by Lucas down the right, his cross is onto the boot of Benzema but he gets it all wrong, slamming his shot into the ground with the ball bouncing over the bar!
75: OVER! Benzema has been very quiet as he blazes a shot over from Lucas Vazquez's pass over the bar. Caparrós has injected energy back into this Sevilla side who are refusing to see their two-goal lead cut in half.
73: Escudero performs a perfectly timed challenge to dispossess Lucas Vazquez. He has been one of the steals of the century, a free transfer from Getafe, and he's having another fine display.
71: Dani Ceballos wasn't particularly happy about being subbed as he flung his jacket to the ground. He's not taken his chance tonight on a rare start for Real.
70: SUB! Borja Mayoral is now the partner for Benzema as Ceballos makes way to a chorus of boos, being an ex-Real Betis player.
69: BOOKED! That's the second yellow card of the evening as Pizarro is late on Casemiro, not for the first time.
68: WIDE! It's a poor first effort from Sandro Ramirez as he gets his header all wrong from Escudero's cross. Moments later, he tries to latch onto a through-ball by Ben Yedder, but Casilla is quick to rush off his line and smother at his feet.
Claims for a penalty, but the Real Madrid stopper wins the ball cleanly.
67: CHANCE! It's a good chance that goes begging for Ramos as Soria flaps at the corner under pressure from Lucas Vazquez and the centre-back can only scoop his left-foot volley over the bar!
WATCH: RAMOS MISSES PENALTY
64: Soria is injured and he bowls the ball out so he can receive treatment. Ceballos isn't happy with the time-wasting as he pleads with Lahoz. After a bizarre moment or so, we're back underway after it all got a bit fractious.
62: SUB! Luis Muriel is replaced by Sandro Ramirez. He can be happy with his night's work.
60: CHANCE! What a glorious opportunity for Sevilla to go further in front as Vazquez chips a delightful pass right down the centre that cuts the Madrid defence and Muriel is onto it in a flash.
He looks to slide the shot beneath Casilla but the keeper is quick off his line to smother with his feet!
58: MISSED PENALTY! It's Ramos, against his old club, and he stutters as he approaches the ball before slamming his penalty against the underside of the bar!
57: PENALTY REAL MADRID! Lucas Vavquez is fouled by his namesake Franco Vazquez. It was a lazy challenge!
56: CHANCE! This should wrap it up for Sevilla and Ben Yedder must be wondering how he hasn't scored his second of the night. Kiko Casilla atones for his error to save!
His clearance was poor and Muriel did ever so well to back-heel the ball into Ben Yedder's path, but he tried to finish low when a shot into the roof was needed!
55: WIDE! It's Sergio Ramos of all people who steps up to curl this, right-footed, but Soria sees it drift wide of his right-hand post.
54: FOUL! Great interception from Theo Hernandez to deny Nzonzi from finding Franco Vazquez. Pizarro now concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position off Ceballos. Real have to make this count.
51: Real continue to probe as Kovacic finds Vazquez down the right and he wins a corner off Lenglet. It's Pareja at the near post who clears the ensuing set piece before Muriel does well to win his side a throw-in off Kovacic.
48: SHOT! There's one or two loose clearances that are giving possession back to Real Madrid rather too cheaply as Lucas Vazquez takes a dipping shot from Kovacic's pass some 25 yards out but Soria watches it fly over!
47: There's an early collision between Theo and Layun as they resume battle down that flank. Sevilla have had little possession but they've been much more progressive so far.
WE'RE BACK UNDERWAY!
46: KICK OFF! Zidane is sticking with experience for now as he makes no changes at half time. It is Real who get us back up and running.
WATCH: LAYUN DOUBLES LEAD
Sevilla are going a long way to making this a two-horse race for the last of the three Europa League places to be decided.
They lead Real Madrid 2-0 at the interval courtesy of goals from Yissam Ben Yedder and Miguel Layun, right on the stroke of half-time.
GOAL! SEVILLA 2-0 REAL MADRID (Layun, 45)
Sevilla have their second as Escudero finds Ben Yedder down the left with the striker finding the lung-bursting run of Nzonzi.
Theo does well to block his shot, but the ball falls kindly for the Sevilla midfielder, and he lays it off for Miguel Layun who fires into the roof of the net with Casilla grounded!
SEVILLA 1-0 REAL MADRID
42: OFF THE LINE! Chance for Sevilla as Nacho scrambles the ball off the line! What drama, with Sevilla players now claiming a handball.
Lahoz says, "No penalty" and shows Mercado a yellow card!
Ben Yedder laid the ball off for Muriel and his shot beyond Casilla is cleared off the line by Nacho... the ball is reworked by Ben Yedder and there are claims Casemiro handled the cross but much to the anger of the Sevilla supporters, the official waves away the protests!
39: Referee Lahoz deals with it, and the game resumes. It's highly competitve as Nacho and Kovacic fail to find space down the right, snuffed out by Nzonzi, who has been excellent this half.
37: Sevilla are playing very well. It would appear the same side that knocked Manchester United out of the Champions League has decided to show up this evening.
Beware Real, however, they have shown admirable ability to get results when they're not playing well this season.
The referee has something to react to here as Escudero goes down holding his face after an off-the-ball incident with Lucas Vazquez.
34: OVER! Lenglet rises to win the header off Layun's corner but he can't direct it on target!
32: The free-kick is slipped down the line to Nacho, and it's not the worst cross in the world but it is dealt with by Lenglet.
Looking back at the goal, Ramos was caught in a poor position as Ben Yedder's first touch was perfect and Vallejo was beaten too easily in the air by Muriel.
Layun now wins his side a corner off Theo.
WATCH: BEN YEDDER'S OPENER
29: There's nothing wrong with a 4-4-2 and a lot of clubs are back playing that now in La Liga. The Sevilla front pairing have linked up very well so far. Merado fouls Theo as Real look to respond.
GOAL! SEVILLA 1-0 REAL MADRID (Ben Yedder, 26)
This is excellent front play from the two Sevilla strikers as a long ball from Pareja is headed by Luis Muriel into the path of Wissam Ben Yedder and he keeps his cool to slide his shot between the legs of Kiko Casilla. Route one stuff!
SEVILLA 0-0 REAL MADRID
23: CHANCE! Excellent weaving run from Ben Yedder after being fed by Escudero...he cuts inside Nacho and for one moment it looks like the Real Madrid man is going to commit a foul inside the box, but he stands his ground, and the ball is worked wide to Layun but he slices his shot horribly wide!
22: SHOT! Kovacic takes a cleared ball on the volley and fires a shot comfortably wide of Soria's right-hand post.
