MATCH REPORT | Epic comeback (3-2)

Magical night in Heliópolis. Real Betis Balompié came back in a game that became very difficult in the first half. In spite of Betis being in control, Alavés took the lead. Joselu and Édgar Méndez gave a comfortable lead to the away side before half time.

However, the second half was a different story. Borja Iglesias cut the lead from the spot following a foul inside the box on Fekir. Ten minutes before the end, Joaquín headed the ball to the top-right corner in a set play. Five minutes later, Iglesias showed up again with a fantastic header to take the three points.
