Los Blancos squeeze past Betis

Real Madrid got back to winning ways in LaLiga with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Real Betis on Sunday evening.

Betis pulled out the surprises in their line-up, starting with a totally different shape with Real making a few changes too following a shock defeat at home to Real Sociedad.

The struggling start from Betis soon fell on their sword, as the record-breaking European champions took charge.

Croatian superstar Luka Modric volleyed home a high-ball on the edge of the area to give the visitors the lead after just 12 minutes following good work from Vinicius Da Silva.

Betis’ first sight on goal though came well after the opening quarter, with Giovani Le Celso going wide with a low shot from outside the box.

Formerly of Madrid, Sergio Canales attempted to haunt the side that give him his breakthrough when lining up for a free-kick, but he sent the delivery wide in the end four minutes to halftime.

Madrid were forced to make an immediate change at the start of the second half, with untried youngster Cristo Gonzalez taking the spot of Benzema.

Canales pushed forward once more and after opening space near the edge of the box, shot narrowly wide of target two minutes from the interval.
