Real Madrid won the El Clasico last week and jumped to the top of the La Liga table. They were one point ahead. Now, in the new week of La Liga, Barcelona played first and won the match. So, they moved two points ahead of the most successful club. After the match, Barca coach Setien told the press that Real Madrid now has to win the match to move to the top. But later, the Los Blancos failed to do so. They faced a defeat against Real Betis. After the match, the Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane stated that Real Madrid played the worst match of the season. At the same time, Zidane has taken responsibility for the unforgivable defeat.
After playing the worst match of the season, Real Madrid has missed the chance to reclaim the La Liga top position from the current league champion Barcelona. At the venue of Real Betis, the team of Madrid showed very poor performance and the same old Real which played against Barca and won was totally absent.
At the opponent’s venue, Real Madrid faced the defeat by a 2 – 1 goal against Real Betis. After going behind, through the successful penalty goal, the French striker Karim Benzema led the team to return to the game. After the 1st of February, it was the first goal of the French forward. At the end of the game, the former Barca forward Tello scored the match-winning goal. So, Real Betis left the ground with the victory. If the local team would not miss the plenty of chancers, the goal difference might be bigger.
