The result leaves the Andalusians eight, just four points behind La Real, who are in sixth, and just seven points off a Champions League place. Unbeaten in four in La Liga, Betis are now well and truly in the mix for a Europa League spot.

Both sides lock horns again on Tuesday night, this time in Seville. They’re contesting the last 16 of the Copa del Rey. In La Liga, Betis face Osasuna at their place next weekend while La Real travel to Villarreal.
