FT: Real Madrid 0-1 Real Betis (Sanabria 90+4')


03:32 (IST)21 SEP 2017

Real Madrid will look upon that game as a real disaster, as they did not manage to score despite 25 shots. Zinedine Zidane's side threw the kitchen sink and then some at Betis with Antonio Adan having the game of his life in goal, but a sucker-punch from Antonio Sanabria has now handed Barcelona the advantage in La Liga.

That's it from me, Sunaadh Sagar, bringing you all the action from the Bernabeu. Goodnight, and do get in touch if you have any feedback - I'm @sunaadh on Twitter.

FT: Real Madrid 0-1 Real Betis

03:25 (IST)21 SEP 2017

90+4' SILENCE AT THE BERNABEU! Barragan takes his time and lobs a beautiful cross from the right wing to Antonio Sanabria with a brilliantly timed run into space at the far post with the Betis striker heading it past Navas!

Real Madrid 0-1 Real Betis

03:23 (IST)21 SEP 2017


03:23 (IST)21 SEP 2017

90+3' SAVE! Carvajal sends in another cross and Borja Mayoral rises high to glance a header at goal, but cannot get enough purchase on it, with Adan collecting the ball with a diving save.

03:21 (IST)21 SEP 2017

90+1' SHOT! Carvajal sends in a cross and Ramos' misses with his overhead kick, with Bale collecting and calmly passing to Kroos on the edge of the box, but the German sends his effort well over.

03:20 (IST)21 SEP 2017

90' 5 minutes of injury time. Can Real Madrid get a winner?

03:20 (IST)21 SEP 2017

90' GOO..... NOOOO! The ball is in Madrid's net and Sanabria is in an offside position, much to Madrid's relief.

03:18 (IST)21 SEP 2017

88' SO CLOSE! Lucas Vazquez ends up on the right and sends a low cutback that is inches from Asensio connecting. Moments later, Lucas is back to slide in and concede a corner.

03:16 (IST)21 SEP 2017

86' Mandi is down on the ground and after landing awkwardly while challenging Ronaldo for a header. The Bernabeu is downright hostile at what they see as time-wasting.

03:15 (IST)21 SEP 2017

85' Another aimless cross, and it is Bale yet again, who cuts inside on his left foot from the right wing and sends a cross to Ronaldo well over, when in the past at Spurs, that would have been a position to shoot. More jeers at the Bernabeu.

03:13 (IST)21 SEP 2017

82' Madrid look desperate in attack at the moment, with plenty of rushed passes and aimless crosses into the box, with Bale the latest to do so. The cheers that he's got so far, have now turned into whistles and jeers.

03:10 (IST)21 SEP 2017

80' Tello looks to have run clear of Madrid's defence while controlling a long ball, but the Bernabeu breathes a sigh of relief as the former Barca man is offside.

03:09 (IST)21 SEP 2017

79' Joaquin comes on to replace Fabian for Real Betis, taking the armband as well. Quique Setien is really going for the jugular here.

03:06 (IST)21 SEP 2017

76' Poor! Toni Kroos sends in another corner from the right to Asensio at the edge of the box, but he shoots well over the bar.

03:05 (IST)21 SEP 2017

75' SO SO UNLUCKY! Carvajal sends in a probing cross, but it is behind Bale, and the Welshman produces an ingenious backheel that looked destined for goal, but Adan makes a save and turns it on to the far post! How have Betis not conceded yet?

03:04 (IST)21 SEP 2017

73' SHOT! Asensio sprints all the way down the left wing and spots Ronaldo on the edge of the box, finding him with a measured pass, but he blazes his effort wildly over the bar. Madrid look desperate now.

03:03 (IST)21 SEP 2017

73' It's anyone's guess as to what formation Madrid are playing, although it seems as though Casemiro, Varane and Ramos are three at the back, with Asensio and Lucas as wingbacks.

03:01 (IST)21 SEP 2017

71' Lucas Vazquez and Borja Mayoral come on to replace Marcelo and Luka Modric for Real Madrid.

03:00 (IST)21 SEP 2017

69' Real Madrid are being rather patient as they dominate the ball in midfield. Carvajal sends in a cross and Ronaldo gets his head to it, but his looping header is claimed by Adan. Betis restart play quickly with Marcelo injured and jeers ring out at the Bernabeu.

02:57 (IST)21 SEP 2017

67' Marco Asensio comes on to replace Isco for Real Madrid. Score now, and a baton will have passed.

02:56 (IST)21 SEP 2017

66' Jeers ring out at the Bernabeu as Real Betis defender Antonio Barragan is down with a head injury after being pushed by Casemiro into the path of Feddal.

02:55 (IST)21 SEP 2017

65' Carvajal with another blocked cross after excellent play from Ronaldo, Bale and Modric find him in space on the right. Moments later, Kroos hammers a swerving shot from range, and Adan gets his fingertips to the ball to concede a corner. Madrid, unsurprisingly, are unable to fashion a chance from the set-piece.

02:53 (IST)21 SEP 2017

62' SUPERB FOOTBALL! Ronaldo and Gareth Bale combine brilliantly on the edge of the box, with the Welshman producing an ingenious backheel, with Ronaldo going down under pressure from Barragan. The ref waves play on and is jeered by the Bernabeu. I've seen them given, but that would have been generous.

02:50 (IST)21 SEP 2017

61' Ryad Boudebouz comes on to replace Francis Guerrero for Real Betis

02:49 (IST)21 SEP 2017

59' Mandi slides in crudely to challenge Ronaldo, but seems to have injured himself in the process. A minute later, he's back up.

02:48 (IST)21 SEP 2017

58' Zouhair Feddal goes into the book while preventing Modric from running clear on the counter attack.

02:46 (IST)21 SEP 2017

56' OFF THE POST! Madrid counter attack and find Ronaldo on the left side of the back, with Madrid's talisman chipping a clever cross to Carvajal running in at the far post, but he hits the near post with his shot!

02:46 (IST)21 SEP 2017

55' HOW DID HE NOT SCORE?! Francis Guerrero runs clear of the Madrid defence and gets on the end of a long ball on the right, but when he's only faced with Navas, blazes a panicked shot well over the bar.

02:45 (IST)21 SEP 2017

54' Ronaldo turns provider this time, sending a low cross into the box, but Mandi clears it out for a corner. Kroos' takes Madrid's 10th corner of the night short, and Isco's shot it blocked!

02:43 (IST)21 SEP 2017

53' Marcelo and Dani Carvajal's days seem to have worsened after both make a mess of yet another chance to cross from the wings.

02:41 (IST)21 SEP 2017

51' I DO NOT BELIEVE MY EYES! Isco sends Gareth Bale clear down the left wing, and he sends in a perfect low cross into the box, but Ronaldo, who only has to tap the ball in, sends it over the bar! Incredible!

02:40 (IST)21 SEP 2017

50' The omens do not look good. Ronaldo slips in the box while lining up a shot and his effort is wildly over the bar.

02:39 (IST)21 SEP 2017

49' Excellent defending! Isco appears to have left Barragan for dead and makes his way down the left wing, only for the Betis right back to make up the yards and make a perfect sliding tackle to stop the Spaniard's foray forward.

02:37 (IST)21 SEP 2017

47' Lovely interplay from Madrid in the middle, as Kroos, Modric and Bale exchange a flurry of ont-touch passes finds Casemiro on the edge of the box, but the Brazilian's attempted pass to Ronaldo is intercepted.

02:36 (IST)21 SEP 2017

46' Madrid are right on the attack, with Ronaldo almost sending Kroos into the box with a clever backheel, but Barragan is alert and clears the ball.

02:35 (IST)21 SEP 2017

46' PEEEEP! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left.

02:35 (IST)21 SEP 2017

The teams have exited the tunnel and come out for the second half. Kickoff is up next!

02:34 (IST)21 SEP 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo attempted seven shots against Betis so far, only one fewer than the number of passes he has completed (8/9). It's fair to say that Lionel Messi's four goals are weighing heavily on his mind....

02:28 (IST)21 SEP 2017

Are Real Betis Balompié set to become the team that ends Real Madrid C.F.'s scoring record, or will Cristiano Ronaldo find his way past them?

The second half is on its way, stay tuned!

02:22 (IST)21 SEP 2017

The second half is coming up in a few minutes, stay tuned!

02:20 (IST)21 SEP 2017

HT: Real Madrid 0-0 Real Betis

02:20 (IST)21 SEP 2017

45+2' CHANCE! Bale sends in a cross from the right wing and finds Ronaldo making a near post run, but his shot is well wide of the post.

02:18 (IST)21 SEP 2017

45' 2 minutes of injury time.

02:17 (IST)21 SEP 2017

44' Another corner for Madrid! Isco finds Ronaldo on the left wing, and he cuts inside before hammering a shot towards the far post, but Adan punches the ball out for a corner. Kroos sends the ball in and finds Ramos, but he sends his volley well over.

02:16 (IST)21 SEP 2017

44' Victor Camarasa comes off injured and is replaced by Andres Guardado

02:16 (IST)21 SEP 2017

42' WHAT A SAVE! Modric finds Isco on the edge of the box, cuts inside on his left foot and curls a powerful shot that looked destined for the far post, only for Adan to make a superb save!

02:15 (IST)21 SEP 2017

42' LUCKY! Tello slides in to foul Ramos with a trip and escapes a second yellow card as the Spanish centre-back does not make much of it.
