Real Madrid surprisingly lost to Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night. The visitors relied on a last-minute strike from Antonio Sanabria to earn the crucial win at Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo, who just returned from a five-match suspension, made some effort in front of goal but couldn't rescue his side with at least a draw. Ronaldo saw his back heel effort cleared off the line by Real Betis defense. Later on, the Portuguese superstar attempted another fine long-range shot but it was saved by Betis goalie Antonio Adan. The loss now leaves Real Madrid seven points adrift of table-toppers Barcelona, while Real Betis scaled up to sixth with nine points.
