Friend me on facebook www.facebook.com Sevilla struck early and held on to subject visiting Real Madrid to a 1-0 defeat as the defending Spanish champions fell eight points behind rivals Barcelona on Saturday. The result was hardly the best preparation for Real, who host Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday. This was their second La Liga defeat in four matches played so far. Sevilla's Piotr Trochowski netted at a corner in the second minute and Real laboured in their bid to equalise in a bruising and bad-tempered battle at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. Barcelona are top with 12 points from four games, two ahead of second-placed Málaga, who were 3-1 winners at home to Levante. Sevilla rose to third on eight points and Real are 10th. The scene was set in the opening minutes when the Poland midfielder Trochowski arrived late and unmarked at a corner to hammer a volley into the roof of the net. Almost immediately there was a melee at the other end of the pitch as tackles flew in thick and fast and tempers flared. It was incredible that both sides finished with 11 men.
