Zidane confident Ronaldo will remain at Real Madrid

Ronaldo presented his trophy for the best player in football to the Santiago Bernabeu crowd before kickoff.

"The other day I said that a player could come here and stay for 15 or 20 years and he'll never do what he's done".

Real need more of the same from him over the coming weeks as they seek to defend their La Liga, Champions League and Club World Cup crowns with a mix of experienced heads and promising youngsters.

"We have been playing well for four or five games now", he said.

Zidane said that the injured Raphael Varane and Gareth Bale would travel to the Middle East, not remain in Madrid to ensure they are fit for the La Liga Clasico at home to Barcelona on December 23.

Ronaldo is also the current holder of the FIFA Best Award and victor of the Goal 50. He was powerless, however, to stop Nacho from the resulting corner after Sevilla failed to clear the ball properly.

After a brief spell when Sevilla tried to respond, a silky smooth pass by Marco Asensio met Ronaldo on his run past left back Lionel Carole.

There would be no hat-trick for Ronaldo as the number seven was brought off in the 76th minute, but it was a job well done for the home side as they overcame a couple of key suspensions and injuries to put another three points on the board. Ronaldo had a first penalty shot denied but got his spot-kick after Jesus Navas handled the ball, and he calmly converted from the spot himself.

A year after lifting Euro 2016, Ronaldo helped lead Los Blancos to the La Liga and Champions League titles last season. That low tally contrasts with his performances in the Champions League, where he became the first player to score in all six group matches. Sevilla defender Gabriel Mercado apologized to the team's supporters for what he agreed was its worst outing of the season.

"He had a go at us: 'Hey, you have to wake up, you were s*** there.' I told him: 'It was only three months ago that we won the European Super Cup and the Spanish Supercopa'". "We ask our fans to forgive us, " Mercado said.
