Sevilla defender Sergio Ramos has tonight etched his name ever further into the history books of European football.
Ramos, and Sevilla, marked their return to action a short time ago.
Turning attentions back towards matters in the Champions League, Diego Alonso’s troops welcomed Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven to Andalusia, desperate for a return to winning ways.
When all was said and done, however, a remarkable collapse ultimately culminated in Sevilla surrendering a two-goal advantage, en route to a last-gasp defeat.
And yet, as alluded to above, an otherwise bitterly disappointing night nevertheless proved one to remember for a headline member of Alonso’s squad.
This comes after it was revealed that Sergio Ramos has secured for himself a place in the Champions League record books.
Owing to the game’s opener against PSV, the Spanish veteran – fresh off being shown his latest red card at the weekend – has joined iconic pair Gerard Piqué and Roberto Carlos as the top-scoring defender in the history of European football’s premier competition.
