Sergio Ramos had the most typical Sergio Ramos half of football we’ve ever seen

The Real Madrid captain's crazy second half against Sevilla had literally everything

Well this was eventful.

Real Madrid were playing for pride when they lined against Sevilla with a firm second string side.

With Real 2-0 down at half time it was left to captain fantastic Sergio Ramos to lead his men back into the game.

And he did it the only way he knows how; all guns blazing.

Lining up without Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Raphael Varane, it wasn’t surprising to see Real ship goals to Wissam Ben Yedder and Miguel Layun in the first half.

And with an inexperienced team around him we saw the best and worst of Ramos in a blistering second half.

If I miss the first penalty, can I have another?

Just before the hour mark Lucas Vasquez was fouled in the box and without CR7 on the pitch, Ramos stepped up to have a crack at the resulting penalty.

But as might be predictable when a centreback takes a spot kick, Ramos duly missed.

Slamming the ball against the crossbar.

Next in the Ramos show came his usual booking on the 83rd minute before he really started making the game all about him.

As the game was winding down Ramos added insult to injury by scoring an own goal, having already missed a penalty.

With Sevilla in behind Real, Ramos slid to block a cross  and somehow managed to divert the ball into his own net.

3-0 down away to Sevilla and staring at 18-point gap to league winners Barcelona, but Ramos wasn’t done there.

In the 95th minute, in added time, Real were awarded another penalty.

And Ramos being Ramos he took the reins and stepped up to the plate again.

But this time he looked like the cool finisher we know he is.

Easy as you like, Ramos stroked the ball into the bottom corner.

It was too little too late for Real to grab a point from this one, but perfectly wrapped up Ramos’ 100mph performance as he went from rock bottom (penalty miss and own goal) to some form of retribution.

Always handy for Spain knowing Ramos is ready to step up if it comes to penalties in Russia.
