Match Report Real Madrid 0 – Betis 2: The Worst End to a Terrible Season


Real Madrid players are finally on holidays, although they seemed on the beach since the double KO in the Champions League and Copa del Rey. Real Madrid supporters suffered another terrible game (0-2) this season ending up in a defeat against Betis with even Jesé scoring a goal. The public booed the team after the final whistle, showing them the anger after a terrible season.

Only Keylor Navas deserved to wear the Real Madrid t-shirt on Sunday. All the other players should be ashamed of their performance, another one in this awful year. Not even Zidane’s arrival changed the level or the attitude. Many things need to change this summer to improve the level. Even Zizou seemed speechless and angry with the new image and defeat.

It was a farewell game for many players. Starting from Keylor Navas, the best of the team and probably out of the club this summer. The Costa Rican is an example of professionalism and a great goalkeeper who gave everything for Real Madrid. Marcos Llorente, also in the line-up, will say goodbye. However. Zidane didn’t give Bale any minutes, so the Welshman couldn’t participate again in a football game with the white t-shirt.

The game itself was terrible. Benzema had the clearest change of the game but the ball hit the post. Generally speaking, Betis had the control with Lo Celso in the middle and they got the three points well deserved thanks to the goals scored by Loren and Jesé, former Real Madrid player who has to return to PSG this summer. Betis was able to beat Barcelona and Real Madrid away this season. The last club to do this was Mallorca in 2002.

Isco and Asensio were again substitutes in the match and their future is a great question mark. The Mallorcan born will stay in the club but Isco might leave, and perhaps the supporters don’t miss him, thinking about his last months in the club. The best news is that the season is over. Time to restart.
