Real Madrid were held to a 0-0 draw by Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu as the La Liga season draws to a close for the champions.
In an entertaining but goalless opening period, the best chance of the half fell to Karim Benzema in the eighth minute, who saw his half-volley from close-range bravely blocked by Marc Bartra.
Madrid came out of the blocks quickest in the second half, and another chance was presented to the Frenchman in the opening exchanges. He met Daniel Carvajal’s cross on the volley to steer a drilled effort towards goal, initially parried out by Rui Silva before Rodrygo snatched at the rebound, but saw his effort deflected wide.

In a game where Madrid struggled to pick the lock of the Betis defence, the hosts were forced to try their luck from long-range on several occasions, but couldn’t trouble goalkeeper Silva who made a handful of important saves.
The result meant nothing to Madrid who have already confirmed their status as champions, but it does mean Betis have secured fifth place.
