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.

Toodles!

FT: Real Madrid 0-1 Real Betis
...
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
...
90+4' GOAL ANTONIO SANABRIA!
...
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.
...
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.
...
90' 5 minutes of injury time. Can Real Madrid get a winner?
...
90' GOO..... NOOOO! The ball is in Madrid's net and Sanabria is in an offside position, much to Madrid's relief.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
79' Joaquin comes on to replace Fabian for Real Betis, taking the armband as well. Quique Setien is really going for the jugular here.
...
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.
...
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?
...
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.
...
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.
...
71' Lucas Vazquez and Borja Mayoral come on to replace Marcelo and Luka Modric for Real Madrid.
...
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.
...
67' Marco Asensio comes on to replace Isco for Real Madrid. Score now, and a baton will have passed.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
61' Ryad Boudebouz comes on to replace Francis Guerrero for Real Betis
...
59' Mandi slides in crudely to challenge Ronaldo, but seems to have injured himself in the process. A minute later, he's back up.
...
58' Zouhair Feddal goes into the book while preventing Modric from running clear on the counter attack.
...
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!
...
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.
...
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!
...
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.
...
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!
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
46' PEEEEP! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left.
...
The teams have exited the tunnel and come out for the second half. Kickoff is up next!
...
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....
...
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!
...
The second half is coming up in a few minutes, stay tuned!

...
45' 2 minutes of injury time.
...
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.
...
44' Victor Camarasa comes off injured and is replaced by Andres Guardado
...
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!
...
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.
