(Video) James Rodriguez Goal Gives Real Madrid Lead Against Sevilla With Perfectly Timed Run

Posted by

Real Madrid took the lead against Sevilla with a superb header from James Rodriguez, who timed his run to perfection to head in Marcelo’s pinpoint cross.

Sevilla’s marking left much to be desired, but the Colombian’s stealthy run to the back post and brave diving header earned Real Madrid a deserved early lead.

It was a great example of intelligent off-the-ball movement coupled with excellent understanding with his new team-mates.

Should the Spanish capital side claim victory here, they will go four points clear of FC Barcelona at the top of La Liga, and seven points ahead of city rivals Atletico Madrid.
