Real Madrid Reduces Pressure On Barcelona After Losing To Real Betis
March. 09, 2020
Cristian Tello's second-half goal clinched a surprise 2-1 win for Real Betis against Real Madrid to hand Barcelona top spot in La Liga.
Tello fired Betis to their first win in eight games and their second in La Liga this year after Karim Benzema's penalty had cancelled out Sidnei's superb opening goal.
Madrid, who struck the crossbar through Ferland Mendy in the second half, missed the chance to leapfrog Barcelona at the top of the table and have lost three of their last four games in all competitions.
Madrid threw caution to the wind in the closing stages. Ramos' header across the face of goal was well claimed by Robles.
The visitors poured forward in stoppage time and Benzema went close to snatching a point for his side but fired wide from 20 yards.
