Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
So, having already guaranteed third place in LaLiga, Zidane suffers his first home defeat in his second spell in charge of Madrid and his team were booed off at the end of the match. The win for Betis sees them finish in the top half of the table as well as recording consecutive victories after a dip in form at the end of April. 
Two second-half goals secure the win for Betis over Madrid. Benzema had hit the woodwork in the first half for the hosts after Francis played his clearance straight into his path. He had a lot of space in the box but could only drive his low shot against the post. Betis dominated for much of the game and capitalised on that when Guardado put a brilliant cross into Moron at the far post that he fired into the roof of the net. 15 minutes later, Jese then doubled their lead when Firpo's cut back into the middle of the box found the substitute and he sent his effort past Navas. 
90' + 3' FULL-TIME: REAL MADRID 0-2 REAL BETIS.
Sidnei
William Carvalho
Real Betis
90' + 1' Carvalho is the final player to come off for Betis after struggling with an injury in the last few minutes and Sidnei comes on to replace him. 
90' + 1' Marcelo cuts the ball back to Asensio on the edge of the box and the substitute takes his shot first time, but his effort finishes well wide of the far post. 
89' Madrid are keeping the ball well when they have it in their own half, but as soon as they start to push forward, they just can't keep hold of it which means that they're gifting possession back to Betis needlessly.
87' Betis have two players down in the middle of the pitch and it looks like they're struggling with cramp. When Betis put the ball out to give them a chance to be seen to, the home fans once again show their frustration with loud jeers. 
Isco
Yellow Card
Real Madrid
85' Isco is shown a yellow card after he catches Carvalho with a bad challenge from behind. 
83' The home fans are growing more frustrated with their team as the game goes on. Madrid have been sloppy in possession since conceding the second goal and every time they play a bad pass or give the ball away, jeers ring out from the stands. 
81' Madrid are keeping the ball well again at the minute, but they are still too slow in their build-up when moving forward. Marcelo is pushing up the field but nobody is making a run into the box for him to pick out. 
79' Lopez has gone down in his box and is receiving treatment after that collision with Isco. It looks like he was just winded after being caught in the chest and he's quickly back to his feet and is able to carry on. 
78' Carvajal gets forward from right-back and nods the ball back across the box to try and pick out Isco at the far post. Both him and Lopez rise to reach it and collide in their attempts to get on the end of the cross. Isco does get on the end of it but he nods the header wide. 
Lucas Vázquez
K. Benzema
Real Madrid
76' Final roll of the dice from Zidane now as he brings on Vazquez in place of Benzema. 
Junior Firpo
Assist
Real Betis
75' Firpo used his pace to get away from Marcelo and took the ball to the byline before squaring it back to Jese who was in a lot of space in the middle of the box. 
Jesé
Goal
Real Betis
75' JESE DOUBLES BETIS' LEAD! Lo Celso was keeping the ball on the edge of the box and was drawing the Madrid defenders towards him. He picks out Firpo who crosses it into an unmarked Jese in the middle of the box and he fires his effort high into the roof of the net. 2-0 Betis!
Cristian Tello
Loren Morón
Real Betis
74' Second change for Betis now as the goal scorer Moron is replaced by Tello. 
73' Guardado is running down the right wing with a lot of space ahead of him and it looks like Betis are in on goal again as he has Jese making the run towards the far post. Modric tracks him the whole way though and delays him enough to allow his team-mates to get back to defend.
71' Madrid look frantic whenever they win the ball back in the desperation to get a goal back. Betis have won it back now they are just trying to slow the pace of the game down again to give themselves a breather. 
Isco
F. Valverde
Real Madrid
69' Madrid make their second change of the game now as Isco comes on in place of Valverde.
68' GREAT SAVE BY NAVAS! Betis work the ball upfield well once again and Lo Celso takes his shot first time from outside the box. It's a good effort and Navas makes a brilliant save in the top corner to send it wide. 
Jesé
W. Kaptoum
Real Betis
68' First change of the game for Betis now as Kaptoum goes off after that earlier injury and is replaced by Jese. 
67' Asensio cuts back inside to create some space for himself and puts a good cross towards the near post. Benzema flicks the ball towards Vinicius at the far post, but Feddal gets there ahead of him to intercept it. 
65' Betis are taking their time on the ball at the minute as they just slow down the pace of the game. Madrid are closing them down high up the field now though and the away side are running the risk of being dispossessed in their own half. 
63' Madrid are moving the ball a little quicker after going behind, but they are struggling to get past the Betis defenders at the minute.
A. Guardado
Assist
Real Betis
61' Guardado times his run perfectly to stay onside to get on the end of Lo Celso's pass and he picked out Moron perfectly with his cross to set up the goal. 
Loren Morón
Goal
Real Betis
61' MORON PUTS BETIS AHEAD! Guardado had quite a lot of space down the left wing and he got his head up and saw Moron's run to the far post. The forward took the shot first time and fired his effort into the roof of the net. 1-0 Betis!
Marco Asensio
Brahim Díaz
Real Madrid
60' Zidane makes the first change of the game as he brings on Asensio in place of Brahim. 
Daniel Carvajal
Yellow Card
Real Madrid
58' Carvajal is shown a yellow card after clumsily bringing down Firpo. Some of the Betis players are asking for a red card instead as they think he was the last man, but it looked like Varane would get back on the cover. 
57' GREAT CHANCE FOR VINICIUS! A wonderful ball over the top of the Betis defence plays in Vinicius and he is left one-on-one with Mandi on the left side of the box. He takes a couple of touches to get past him before aiming his shot low towards the far corner from the near post and Lopez smothers the shot well. 
55' Benzema has hit the woodwork six times in LaLiga this season, only Lionel Messi has done so more often (10). 
53' Madrid are getting into some great positions in the box in the second half, but their final ball is letting them down. This time it's Benzema who tries to set up the chance for Vinicius, but his pass to him is poor and Mandi is able to intercept the cross and clear it. 
51' Brahim is given a lot of space down the right wing and he squares a brilliant cross to the far post where Benzema is running onto it. The Frenchman's first touch is poor though which allows the Betis defenders are across to close him down and stop him getting his shot away. 
F. Valverde
Yellow Card
Real Madrid
49' Valverde is shown a yellow card after catching Guardado with a bad challenge. 
47' Kaptoum has gone down holding his knee after running with the ball and the medical team are quickly on the field to give him some treatment. It doesn't look too good for the midfielder as Setien has substitutes warming up in case they're needed, but he's back on the field to carry on for now. 
46' Betis get the game back underway for the second half!
Setien will be happy with how his side played in the first half and will be hoping that they can carry on in the same way after the break. The only moment of concern will be the mistake by Francis before Benzema's shot, but otherwise, his team have been solid at the back and created some good chances to take the lead. As for Madrid, Zidane will want to see a bit more pace when his side move forward as they haven't created a lot of clear cut opportunities. If they can find a way to get Vinicius and Modric involved more, as they've looked dangerous with the ball, then they have a good chance of getting onto the scoresheet.
Madrid and Betis go into half-time level at 0-0. Betis had more of the ball so far in the game but both sides have had good chances to take the lead. Benzema has hit the post for the hosts after a poor clearance from Francis was played straight to the Frenchman. He was in a lot of space but just couldn't find the back of the net with his low effort. Bartra and Lo Celso have come closest for Betis with both players being denied from long-range by two great Navas saves. 
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: REAL MADRID 0-0 REAL BETIS. 
44' Madrid's build-up has been slow for a lot of the first half and they are still struggling to get in behind the Betis defence. 
42' Madrid look a little frustrated when Betis have long periods of holding onto the ball. The away side are keeping possession really well and Madrid just can't get close to them in the middle of the field. 
40' Lo Celso has dropped deep into midfield now to get on the ball and he plays a wonderful pass out to Francis on the right wing. He just takes a bit too long to put a cross into the box though and then had to go back to try and build-up another attack. 
38' Guardado takes the free-kick for Betis on the edge of the box and just like earlier in the game, he chips the cross into the crowd of players near the far post. Firpo rises to meet it and does get his head on the ball, but he can only send his effort high over the crossbar. 
Marcos Llorente
Yellow Card
Real Madrid
37' Llorente is booked for a bad foul on Moron. 
35' GREAT CHANCE FOR LO CELSO! Firpo slips the ball through to Lo Celso between two Madrid defenders and he takes a touch before brilliantly chipping the ball over Nacho and towards the target. Navas had come off his line and he scrambles back to his line to push the effort over the crossbar. 
34' BENZEMA HITS THE POST! Varane gets forward up the right wing and puts a brilliant cross into the middle, but none of his team-mates are waiting. Francis then mishits his clearance and plays it straight to Benzema who hits his shot towards the bottom corner, but he can only watch as it rebounds back off the woodwork. 
32' Modric swings the free-kick into the box from the left wing and Benzema pulls away at the far post to knock it into the crowd of players in the middle. Betis have the opportunity to get it clear, but instead, it's Brahim who touches it onto Vinicius who has his effort blocked. 
W. Kaptoum
Yellow Card
Real Betis
30' Kaptoum is shown the first yellow card of the game after pulling back Vinicius. 
28' GOOD CHANCE FOR BARTRA! Bartra gets forward from defence and decides to have a go from outside the box. He curls his effort around the group of players in front of him and Navas does well to tip the ball over the crossbar. 
27' Madrid are trying to slowly build-up their attacks from the back as they wait for some space to open up in the Betis defence. They are keeping the ball well, but aren't really getting into too many dangerous positions. 
25' MARCELO COMES CLOSE! Vinicius cuts the ball back to Marcelo instead of crossing the corner into the box. The Brazilian takes another shot from long range as he drives his effort across goal and it bounces just wide of the far post. 
24' Guardado plays a wonderful throughball to Moron between two Madrid defenders. He brings it in brilliantly with his first touch and is left in a lot of space as he runs into the box, but the linesman has his flag raised for offside. 
23' Marcelo drifts inside from the left and has a go from a long way out. He hits a powerful shot towards goal, but his effort it always rising and it sails over the crossbar. 
21' Brahim slips a throughball into Vinicius on the edge of the box and he tries to let the ball run and get around his defender before getting on the end of it. He didn't fool Bartra though and he was able to get it clear.
19' Madrid have a free-kick on the left wing which is taken by Modric. He swings his cross into a good area in the box and Benzema is close to getting on the end of it, but Feddal gets there first and clears it. 
17' Guardado takes the free-kick on the edge of the box and chips his cross into the middle of the box where Lo Celso is waiting. The forward is unmarked as he heads the ball on target, but it's a comfortable save for Navas. 
16' Brahim gives the ball away to Carvalho, who brilliantly turns past two defenders while keeping it at his feet. Eventually, Nacho comes across and fouls him in his attempt to win back possession.
14' Madrid haven't been able to get on the ball too much in the last few minutes and they're struggling to get close to Betis to win it back.
12' Moron is picked out from a corner and his first touch just takes the ball away from him slightly. He's closed down by two Madrid defenders and Nacho reaches it first to clear it before he can get a shot away. 
10' Betis are causing Madrid a lot of problems in midfield at the minute and Llorente has just pushed Lo Celso to the side to try and win the ball back. The referee awards the free-kick, but the forward can't pick out any of his team-mates with this cross into the box. 
8' Vinicius makes a brilliant run into the box, keeping the ball the whole time. He dribbles past three Betis defenders, but Mandi gets across to him in the penalty area and gets a good enough touch to knock it out of his path and allow Lopez to clear the danger. 
6' There's not a lot of flow in the game at the minute as both teams are committing fouls and cutting up the passes which is preventing them from getting into dangerous positions in the final third.
4' A pass into the box from Benzema is played too short for Vinicius and Lopez comes off his line to collect it. He takes his time to pick it up though and Vinicius closes him down very quickly and almost causes the keeper some problems, but he reacts quickly and holds onto it. 
2' Betis are keeping the ball well in the opening minutes after winning it back from Madrid after the kick-off, but they haven't been able to push forward into the final third just yet.
1' Benzema gets the game underway for Madrid!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away. 
Setien could become the first away manager to win at the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou in a single LaLiga season since Gregorio Manzano for Mallorca in 2002-03. 
Quique Setien makes just three changes to the team that beat Huesca last weekend. Lopez is in goal in place of Robles, with Mandi and Carvalho also getting starts. Tello starts on the bench, while Joaquin, who scored both the goals in their last match, isn't included in the squad. 
Zidane makes six changes to the side that lost to Real Sociedad last time out. Navas replaces Courtois in goal, with Varane, Modric, Valverde, Llorente and Vinicius also coming into the team. Kroos, Isco and Asensio all drop down to the bench, while Jesus Vallejo and Casemiro miss out through suspension. 
REAL BETIS SUBS: Joel Robles, Emerson, Sergio Leon, Cristian Tello, Sidnei, Jese, Diego Lainez.
REAL BETIS STARTING XI (3-1-4-2): Pau Lopez; Aissa Mandi, Marc Bartra, Zouhair Feddal; William Carvalho; Francis, Wilfrid Kaptoum, Andres Guardado, Junior Firpo; Giovani Lo Celso, Loren Moron. 
REAL MADRID SUBS: Thibaut Courtois, Toni Kroos, Sergio Reguilon, Marco Asensio, Isco, Lucas Vazquez, Gareth Bale.
REAL MADRID STARTING XI (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Daniel Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Luka Modric, Marcos Llorente, Federico Valverde; Brahim Diaz, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
Madrid are guaranteed to finish third in LaLiga this season. Since Zinedine Zidane's return to the club in March, they've only won half of their games (five from 10), all of which have come at home. Betis could still finish in the top half of the table if they win today, but they come into this match having won just one of their previous six games (D1 L4), although that did come in their last outing when they beat Huesca.
