Manuel Pellegrini’s side came out on top in the Andalucian derby thanks to a brace either side of the break from star striker Borja Iglesias at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.
You have to see it to believe it… 🤯@RealBetis_en bundled in an indirect free-kick in the 87th minute to beat Granada this evening! 💚

The win means Pellegrini’s team leapfrog Villarreal in the race for the Europa League next season, with Unai Emery’s side eyeing a possible back door route into the Champions League, by winning their Europa final against Manchester United later this month.
Real Betis now have a two point lead over the Yellow Submarine, with three games left of the campaign, with a midweek trip to struggling Eibar up next for them.
Granada still have a slim chance of qualifying for the newly formed Europa Conference League, via a seventh place finish this season, and they host Real Madrid on Thursday night.
