Sevilla boss: If only we had beaten Real Madrid on the weekend

Sevilla boss Pablo Machin hailed his side’s incredible 3-0 win over Real Madrid and says the only regret is that it didn’t happen on a weekend so the party could last into the early hours

A brace from loan striker Andre Silva and another from Wissam Ben Yedder handed Sevilla a shock 3-0 first-half lead at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

After FIFA Player of the Year Luka Modric had a goal disallowed after the break for Real, the hosts would hold on to record a memorable win.

“It’s a night to enjoy and to remember. Those who do not beat Real Madrid many times will remember it, without a doubt. The crowd has enjoyed it since the first minute and until the end,” Machin told the club website.

“It was a night for the people of Seville to enjoy. (It is) a pity that it is not on a weekend so that the night can be extended.”

Defender Ferland Mendy moved from Lyon to Real Madrid in the summer, but he has not settled in yet as he has had a difficult time there.

Sevilla will now hope to extend their three-game winning run away to Eibar on Saturday.
