Real Betis v Real Madrid - as it happened
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you tomorrow for more action.
FT: Real Betis 2-3 Real Madrid. What a game full of lots of decisions. Madrid get their first win of the season.
Benzema has a shot that goes wide.
Mandi is now booked.
8 minutes added time!!!
Before VAR none of these decisions would have been given.
Canales is booked.
The ball is cut back to Isco and his shot is saved well by Joel.
It was Bartra who handballed it so he picks up a booking.
Anything Maupay can do Ramos can do better. He panenkas it down the middle. 3-2 Madrid.
PENALTY MADRID. Borja Mayoral's shot is handballed by a Betis player. A lengthy VAR review.
Carvalho has a shot from outside the box that is parried.
Betis will just be happy with a draw here I imagine.
Betis sub: Fekir off for Lorén
Madrid sub: Mayoral off for Jovic.
The cross comes in and Benzema puts it wide.
Betis sub: Sanabria off for Montoya.
Ramos fires the free-kick into the side netting.
Jovic is through and stumbles under the pressure of Emerson. After checking the play on VAR, Emerson is sent off.
Betis sub: Joaquín off for Tello.
This score takes Real Betis top of the league.
Betis are playing very well in this match.
Fekir has a shot that goes wide.
Modric is booked for a foul.
The cross comes in and Benzema puts it in. He almost missed that as he scuffed it.
Madrid sub: Odegaard off for Isco.
And we're back.
HT: Real Betis 2-1 Real Madrid. A good performance from the hosts sees them go in at the break in front.
2 minutes added.
Real Madrid sub: Kroos off for Modric.
Benzema has a shot from close range but he hits it straight at the keeper.
Carvajal is booked for a foul on Fekir.
Ramos has a header that goes over the bar.
Rodríguez is booked for a foul on Benzema.
And Betis are in front. The ball is played to Carvalho, he takes a touch and beat Courtois at his front post. Courtois got a hand but couldn't keep it out.
And Betis have equalised. The cross comes in, Mandi rises above Casemiro and heads into the top corner.
I reckon that Madrid won't have it all their way this season. Perhaps teams like Granada, Sevilla, or Atlético can battle Barca and Madrid at the top.
Another chance from Sanabria but it goes over the bar.
A shot from Guido goes wide.
A shot from Fekir from just inside the box goes inches past the post.
SITTER RAMOS!!!!! The ball breaks to him literally 8 yards out and he fires wide. It was easier to score!!!
And Madrid have taken the lead. Benzema plays it across the face of goal and Valverde puts it in. 1-0 Madrid.
Emerson is booked for a foul on Casemiro.
Good reflex save from Courtois. The cross comes in and Sanabria's shot is saved by the Belgian. It was straight down the middle though.
First chance for Madrid. Mendy has a shot from inside the box that goes wide.
Deflected shot from Fekir goes wide.
Benzema taps home the cross for Madrid but he is offside. Decent start.
And we're off.
Madrid will hope to record their first win of the season. Betis will go top even if they draw.
Betis won the last match between these sides in March. It was precisely at the Benito Villamarín.
