Julen Lopetegui accepts that his Real Madrid side were beaten by a better team on Wednesday night after Sevilla picked them apart 3-0 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Gerard Pique committed the decisive error, his fluffed clearance allowing Oscar Rodriguez to score Leganes' second goal in two incredible minutes at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

"They're three points that have escaped us and could be decisive in the end".

Real Madrid, who were just kicking off as Leganes closed out, could have pulled three points clear at the top but instead were three down at half-time for the first time in a league game since 2003, also against Sevilla.

The Croatian midfield maestro could only watch on as Andre Silva gave Sevilla the flawless start against the European champions and joint league leaders by scoring from close range in the 17th minute after a mix-up between Real's out-of-form defender Marcelo and midfielder Casemiro.

AC Milan loanee Silva pounced four minutes later after poor goalkeeping from Thibaut Courtois, netting for the sixth time this season and moving above Lionel Messi as the top scorer in Spain.

Sevilla, who beat Real 3-2 in their last meeting in May, looked very sharp and could have had more goals on the counter-attack as Real pressed forward.

The hosts did all the damaged in the first half, with Andre Silva scoring twice before Wissam Ben Yedder added another in the 39th minute to seal Sevilla's victory.

Los Blancos had a goal disallowed eight minutes into the second stanza after Luka Modric broke into the penalty area and chipped Sevilla goalkeeper Tomáš Vaclik but the goal ruled was ruled for offside after consultation with the Video Assisant Referee (VAR).

Andre Silva gave Sevilla a shock lead in the 17th minute by tucking home a shot from close range after he was played through following a mistake from Casemiro in midfield.

"It seems as though Marcelo has a tear but we will wait until tomorrow to see", Lopetegui said.
