Watch: Can anyone stop Real Madrid? They've now gone a record 40 matches without losing

The Spanish giants bounced back from a 1-3 deficit to draw 3-3 against Sevilla in their Copa del Rey clash.

Real Madrid set a new Spanish record of being unbeaten in 40 matches as they drew 3-3 against Sevilla in their Copa del Rey clash. The draw also ensured that Real won the tie 6-3 on aggregate and progressed to the semi-finals of the tournament.

In an incredible result for manager and French legend Zinedine Zidane, Real also broke Barcelona’s record, who went 39 games unbeaten between October 2015 and March 2016, as they swept to the La Liga and Copa del Rey crowns. Zinedine Zidane’s men were last beaten by Wolfsburg in their Champions League quarter-final first leg in April. Since then, they have won 31 games and drew nine matches.

The match was an enthralling one with Sevilla taking the lead through a Danilo own goal. However, Marco Asensio equalised from a counter-attack after a Sevilla corner. However, Sevilla soon smashed two goals with Stevan Jovetic and Vicente Iborra slotting the ball behind the net. However, Sergio Ramos scored from the penalty spot to make it 3-2 before Karim Benzema smashed in an injury time equaliser for the win and keeping Real’s record intact.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
