Thursday evening Real Madrid had to defend their leading position in Primera Division and they were facing the underdogs from Real Betis. What should have been an easy assignment for Robinho and co ended being a difficult match. Real Betis, who played in their new away shirt, had a lot of chances on goal but without any luck. The 1st half ended without any goals, which were a huge disappointment for the Real Madrid fans. Even though Madrid did not play as defending champions, they got a cheap penalty committed against the captain Raúl, who took it himself and scored. Betis tried to recorver after the first goal agianst them, but they did not succeed. Just before the end of the match, Baptista showed why Real Madrid are currently placed as no. 1 with a perfectly executed scissorkick and the match ended with a 2-0 win for Real Madrid.
