MATCH REPORT | Defeat against Real Madrid (0-1)

First loss of the season

Real Betis Balompié lost tonight against Real Madrid CF at Benito Villamarín Stadium. The team played a really good first half, in which they were superior to the rivals. However, the second half was different and the away side scored the only goal of the game through Carvajal.
