On a night to forget for Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, footage has now emerged of the Real Madrid star appearing to punch Sevilla’s Grzegorz Krychowiak. 

In an off-the-ball incident, with Ronaldo and Krychowiak running towards the penalty area, the former seemingly hit out at his La Liga counterpart in a rather bizarre act. 

Of course, the footage that can be seen below isn't exactly high definition quality, but you may well want to judge the controversial incident for yourself.

Jose Gonzalez, who was officiating the clash, missed the coming together of the two players, but it remains to be seen as to whether Ronaldo will find himself involved in any retrospective action. 

With El Clasico very much on the horizon, the world's best player will be hoping that he gets away with this one, but it was a foolish move, nonetheless. 

Tricky night 

It really was a disastrous night for Rafa Benitez's side, who suffered a 3-2 defeat in Sevilla. Despite dominating the first-half and taking the lead through Sergio Ramos, Real suffered their first La Liga loss of the season, leaving themselves three points behind rivals Barcelona at the top of the table. 

With the international break now on the horizon, Benitez and Co. have a great deal of time to prepare for the crunch clash against Barcelona. One thing is for sure, the Real Madrid faithful will certainly be hoping to see Ronaldo take centre stage at the Bernabeu on November 21.
