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.

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.
