Mel: A draw would have been fairer

Real Betis boss Pepe Mel has claimed that his side deserved at least point from the game against Real Madrid on Saturday.

Los Blancos beat the Verdiblancos 3-1 thanks to goals from Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema.

But the Andalusian side's Coach has insisted that his team were worth at least a draw.

“I think a draw would have been fairer,” he told a Press conference. “But justice in football doesn't exist.

“The reality is that we lost the game 3-1.

“A team with Cristiano, Ozil, Benzema and Modric is going to be a strong opponent.

“But when we had the ball we didn't hit them with our speed – that was a mistake.

“In the second half we put them in some trouble.”
