Real Madrid 0-0 Real Betis: Zinedine Zidane's side miss out on top spot in La Liga

Real Madrid missed the chance to move top of La Liga as Zinedine Zidane's side were held to a goalless draw against Real Betis at the Bernabeu.

Eden Hazard appeared to have put his side ahead in the first half, but his excellent finish was disallowed as he had strayed offside in the build-up.

Goalkeeper Joel Robles produced fine saves from Vinicius Junior and Sergio Ramos as Betis frustrated the hosts.

The result sees second-placed Real move level on points with leaders Barcelona.

Champions Barcelona had suffered a surprise defeat at Levante earlier in the day, while Atletico Madrid and Sevilla played out a 1-1 draw to remain behind Real.

But Zidane's uninspired side failed to capitalise, unable to make any of their 22 shots on goal count.

Three points separate La Liga's top six, and fifth-placed Granada will look to reclaim top spot when they face Real Sociedad, in sixth, on Sunday (20:00 GMT).
