Karim Benzema struck deep into stoppage-time as Real Madrid set a new Spanish record by extending their unbeaten run to 40 games in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Sevilla, progressing to the Copa del Rey quarter-finals in the process.

Holding a 3-0 first leg lead, a Cristiano Ronaldo-less Real looked set for defeat for the first time in eight months as an own goal from Danilo and second-half strikes from Stevan Jovetic and Vicente Iborra saw Sevilla lead 3-1 inside the final 10 minutes.

However, Sergio Ramos’ penalty and substitute Benzema salvaged Madrid’s run, which now surpasses the 39-game unbeaten run set by Barcelona last season.
