Real Madrid’s first football team’s chances of retaining the La Liga title for the second season in a row received a new painful blow, after it fell into a goalless draw with its host Real Betis, on Sunday, in the 24th stage of the competition.
Real Madrid, who tied with Atletico Madrid in the last stage of the tournament, remained in second place in the championship standings table, with 53 points, 9 points behind its old rival Barcelona (leader).
On the other hand, Real Betis’ balance rose to 40 points in fifth place.
The Real Madrid stars failed to invest the opportunities they had during the two halves of the match and translate them into goals, despite the royal team’s control over the course of the match in most periods, to continue its shaky results in the recent period.
And this draw comes to send Real a new shock to its fans, who were very disappointed after the white team lost 1-0 to its guest Barcelona, last Thursday, in the first leg of the semi-finals of the King’s Cup of Spain.
This is the fifth match in which Real Madrid fails to win during its last nine meetings in the Spanish League, noting that it is the first draw that the Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti faced in the competition during the current season outside his stadium.
