Ronaldo Furious At Bale

Cristiano Ronaldo was left frustrated with his teammate Gareth Bale, after Real’s record signing took a free-kick, instead of leaving it for the Portuguese.

While Ronaldo had scored Real's only goal via free-kick, Bale’s effort lashed over the bar and the FIFA Ballon d'Or winner was caught by TV cameras lamenting verbally over the Welshman.

The scene summed up Real’s last four days, in which they slipped from the top of La Liga to third place, following the El Clasico defeat to Barcelona and Wednesday’s loss at Sevila.

But Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, tried to downplay any contention between his two superstars.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was annoyed because we were losing the match, nothing more,” the Italian said.

However, the incident also capped a dismal night for Bale, who was off the pitch changing his boots and left his side temporarily to 10 men when Carlos Bacca scored the winner for Sevilla.

Real’s consecutive losses came after Carlo Ancelotti’s side had gone 31-games unbeaten, looking destined for the club’s first treble in its history. But questions about Real’s quality and their inability to win big games left fans frustrated.

Full-back, Marcelo, asked Real fans for forgiveness and promised the team will fight until the end ‘to get Real Madrid where it should be’.

“We would like to apologise to our fans, who always support us,” the Brazilian said.

“We knew the end of the season is very difficult, with very important matches and we will keep on fighting.

"Now there are several matches that are like finals.

“Of course we players suffer psychologically but we cannot stop working hard and we are going to keep doing so to get Real Madrid to where it should be.

“It is difficult to win several matches in a row like we have. We have lost two matches and now everything is more difficult."
