The Spanish Football League body, La Liga, paid tribute to Nigeria legend Finidi George after Real Betis defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in a league encounter on Wednesday.

Antonio Sanabria’s 94th minute header shocked Zinedine Zidane's men to a disappointing home defeat as the Paraguay international joins the former Ajax star in the records book.

Sanabria and George are the only two players to have led the Estadio Benito Villamarín outfit to victories at the Santiago Bernabeu in 1998 and 2017 respectively.
