Things aren't exactly going to plan for Real Madrid this season. Sure, they may only be three points adrift of Barcelona in La Liga, but are there cracks appearing in Rafa Benitez's team following their 3-2 defeat against Sevilla on Sunday?

Los Blancos went down 3-2 at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán thanks to goals from Ciro Immobile, Ever Banega and Fernando Llorente.

One man conspicuous by his absence, particularly on the scoresheet, was Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar has scored 'just' five goals in his last 12 games - a barren spell by the 30-year-old's standards - and his frustration was on display yesterday.

The Spanish media are reporting that Ronaldo was fuming after the full-time whistle and stormed from the pitch while snubbing team-mate Sergio Ramos in the process. You can make your own mind up by watching the video below.

It shows Ramos seemingly going for a handshake with his team-mate, who gesticulates in frustration. It's unclear whether Ronaldo's reaction was towards the Spaniard, or at his own performance in general.

The incident marked the end of a bad day at the office for Ronaldo, who was blasted in the aftermath for his anonymous display. 

Madrid-based paper Marca described it as 'another bad game' for Ronaldo, while AS hit out at Madrid's 'unexpected collapse'.

The day got even worse for Madrid and Benitez after it was confirmed that Ramos, who opened the scoring in the game, would face a spell on the sidelines after injuring his shoulder. The 29-year-old will miss Spain's international friendly against England as a result.

Do you think this is Ronaldo's last season at the very top?
