Real Madrid did not go beyond a pale away draw against Betis and moves away from the top of the table in La Liga.
Although the visit dominated the first half, Betis defended themselves with order and finished the first 45′ with an unbeaten goal.
However, the story could have been different if the VAR hadn’t canceled out a great free kick from Karin Benzema, 13′ into the first half.
In the second half things were similar and the Betis goalkeeper blocked a great shot from the Frenchman Benzema, at 49′, to keep his mark unbeaten.
At 61′ from time, Valverde gave a great assist to Rodrygo, who sent the shot over the goal defended by Claudio Bravo.
After this goalless draw, those led by Carlo Ancelotti were nine points behind Barcelona.
