Soccer-Real claim record with last-gasp draw against Sevilla

MADRID, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Real Madrid set a Spanish record of 40 matches unbeaten in all competitions after they came back from two goals behind to snatch a 3-3 draw against Sevilla with a last-gasp equaliser from Karim Benzema in the King’s Cup on Thursday.

Real trailed 3-1 in the 77th minute of their last 16 second leg tie but captain Sergio Ramos reduced the arrears from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute after Matias Kranevitter had pulled down Casemiro in the area.

With seconds remaining, Marcelo fed Benzema in the area and the Frenchman struck a right-footed shot past Sevilla goalkeeper David Soria as Real progressed to the quarter-finals with a 6-3 aggregate win. (Reporting by Adriana Garcia; Editing by Toby Davis)
