Real Madrid 0-0 Real Betis: 3 Talking Points | LaLiga 2019/2020
#2 Real Madrid's Bernabeu struggles against Real Betis continues
As already indicated, Real Betis have been one of the poorer teams in LaLiga this season and headed into the clash with Real Madrid just two points clear of the relegation places.
This poor run of form saw the home side installed as heavy favorites and with proven world beaters like Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos among others on display for Los Blancos, anybody would have been forgiven for thinking Betis would be on the end of a whitewash.
However, Los Verdiblancos had an ace up their sleeves and that lay in the fact that they have a good recent record against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It might be hard to believe, but prior to this clash, Real Betis had won on each of their last two visits to the Bernabeu, with a 1-0 victory in September 2017 followed by a 2-0 win at the tail end of last year.
This stalemate means that the Andalusians have now gone three matches without defeat against Real Madrid on their own perch and more impressively, they have shut out the Spanish giants on each occasion.
