Real Madrid stages strong second-half comeback over Betis

Real Madrid stages strong second-half comeback over Betis

Asensio's second tally before the 53,500 fans present was Real Madrid's 6000th La Liga goal, making them the first club to hit that mark in the Spanish First Division.

Gareth Bale has always been linked with a move away from Real Madrid and now according to reports in Spain it looks like he will finally be sold in the summer with the club fearing he interferes with other players development.

The suburban side took a shock lead after just six minutes when defender Unai Bustinza bravely forced the ball home with his head after a scramble following a corner.

Sergio Ramos sealed the win with a late penalty, and Real have now taken 16 points from the last 18 available in La Liga. Zidane's gamble paid off as the relatively inexperienced trio gave Madrid the speed and boost they were lacking, putting forth one of the best Madrid performances this season.

The 21-year-old midfielder joined the Champions League winners from Real Betis last summer and has struggled for regular playing time under Zidane this season. Despite their recent run, Madrid are 17 points behind Barcelona but a win against Leganes would move Zidane's side into third place in La Liga.


"Seeing so many Uruguayans up there is very important for us, a source of pride", Stuani said this week. "We are good and in good form and I am counting on all my players".

The Welshman scored five goals in his opening four games of the calendar year, providing a reminder of what he's capable of when fit and firing. "Even when things have not quite gone to plan we have shown strong character", he said.

Then, in the 91st minute, Karim Benzema superfluously found the twine to put the game away for the final 5-3 result.

"If I were [Madrid coach Zinedine] Zidane, I would try to make sure everyone is at the top of their game and would treat Gareth with all the care in the world. We are good, in a good moment and I will be counting on everyone".
