FT—Betis have won!
Madrid are beaten for the third time away this season! Well-deserved win for Pepe Mel's Betis!
Big noise from los beticos 2 mins of injury time left— Ben Hardman (@hardmanbs) November 24, 2012
Oh wow, Pepe is cleaned out by Canas in midfield and the Betis captain is very lucky to have escaped without a second yellow there.
Nosa on for Sevilla. Bit more energy in middle of the park for last 10 mins— Ben Hardman (@hardmanbs) November 24, 2012
81'—Nosa has come on here for Betis.
Fabio Coentrao goes down hard to the ground and comes up with his face bloodied.
It will take a few minutes to get him bandaged up and Mourinho has used all of his substitutes so let's see if Betis can take advantage here.
Angel Lopez's fine day is over and Nacho comes on to take his place.
74'—Castro fails to seal win
Oh what a missed opportunity for Betis!
Molina and Betis catch Madrid on the counter in a 2-on-2 situation and a fine ball is sent by Pepe at the back.
Castro ends up taking his first touch to shoot, but sends a very poor shot over the bar. Really should have done better there.
I will not believe that Betis can take even a point from this game until the final whistle, but Betis are making a strong showing.— Sidonie Blaugrana (@SidonieM10) November 24, 2012
72'—Madrid in territory
Cañas fouls Coentrao to earn a free kick for Madrid in great position for Alonso.
The kick does find Pepe who puts his shot on goal, but goes straight to Adrian for an easy save.
70'—Agra gets both center-back a warning
Salvador has already had Pepe carded and now Ramos has earned a yellow.
The defender ran at the winger near the touchline and just plowed him over without getting near the ball. Good call by the ref.
The double pivot for Betis has been fantastic all night and Cañas made another great tackle to prevent Kaka from sending the ball into the box after the Brazilian danced around the back line.
Great save from Adrian! He's been excellent.— Sidonie Blaugrana (@SidonieM10) November 24, 2012
63'—Changes for both sides
Jorge Molina comes on for Perez who seems to have a slight strain while Angel di Maria ends his sorrowful day by coming off for Jose Callejon.
62'—Adrian saves the day
Kaka finds some space and sends a thunderous shot on goal, but the Betis keeper makes a great save to keep him out.
60'—Brilliant Angel saves the lead
Ronaldo makes a nice run down the right flank and sends a nearly perfect cross in for Benzema to finish, but Angel makes a brilliant tackle to save the goal.
Well, Betis only have 35 minutes left to hang in there...— Sidonie Blaugrana (@SidonieM10) November 24, 2012
Benzema goal disallowed. This wasn't offside.— La Liga News (@laliga_news) November 24, 2012
Benzema scores a fine goal after a brilliant Modric pass. Should have stood, Benzema was onside. Horrid decision from linesman.— Samuel (@samuelj29060) November 24, 2012
