Betis reacted in the 20th minute to Atletico Madrid’s goal at the Benito Villamarin. A good assist by Alex Moreno allowed Cristian Tello to hit home the equaliser.
Atletico Madrid knew they were in for a tough game at the Benito Villamarin. It is a difficult place to go to and that proved to be the case again. Despite going ahead early on, Tello wiped the smile off Atletico’s faces.
After using the flanks, like Betis usually do, the leveller came along. A pass inside went to Alex Moreno who then sent a good ball in from the left which Tello hit home first time. Oblak could not do anything about it.

Betis made use of the gap in the Atletico Madrid defence to score with their first real attack of the game. The equaliser came at the half hour mark and it lifted the home side.
Atletico did not react well to the goal. It was a huge game after Real Madrid’s win in ‘El Clasico’ on Saturday. Without Luis Suarez, it was an even tougher ask for Simeone’s men.
