GOAL - Real Betis 3-5 Real Madrid
Thanks for joining us today for a thrilling game. Check out the match report in a few minutes on our European football index.
n a sort of useless stat (but I still like it), here are the players to have scored Real Madrid's landmark goals in La Liga.
1 - Lazcano (1929)
1000 - Pahino (1950)
2000 - Paco Gento (1963)
3000 - Juanito (1981)
4000 - Zamorano (1994)
5000 - Guti (2008)
6000 - Marco Asensio 2018
This hard-fought win takes Real Madrid six points above fifth-placed Sevilla - which is probably the main issue really.
They're still 17 points behind leaders Barcelona and 10 behind second-placed Atletico Madrid.
However they could move up to third if they win their game in hand - at Leganes on Wednesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored eight goals in La Liga since the start of 2018, more than any other player.
Karim Benzema had not scored in the league since November.
Benzema not reading the script there. Maybe supersub can be his new role. Tonight muddies the waters for Zidane - only Ronaldo guaranteed starter in the front four, I'd say Andy West on twitter.
It's all over now.
If ever a striker has needed a goal. Karim Benzema scores only his third La Liga goal of the season. Cristiano Tello gifts the ball to Benzema. The striker finds Lucas Vazquez and then gets in the box to slam the winger's cross home from near the penalty spot.
Free-kick to Betis as Dani Carvajal commits a foul on Cristian Tello. Joaquin went close from this range earlier. They try to take this one short for some reason, but the referee wasn't ready so they get another chance.
Joaquin's effort this time is nowhere near as good and it's well over the bar.
That's Gareth Bale's night over as he's replaced by Isco for the final 17 minutes. He hasn't done badly but he's not exactly made an impact like Marco Asensio has with his start.
And now Betis' Andres Guardado shoots from his own half! Keylor Navas is worried and scrambles back but the ball drops onto the top of the net. What an effort.
Cristiano Ronaldo crosses to Gareth Bale, but before he can head home a defender gets it away.
