World News – US – Ramos penalty snatches Real Madrid win over Betis


Sergio Ramos scored a late penalty as Real Madrid came back from behind to claim a 3-2 win over Real Betis at 10, their first win of the season in La Liga

Betis were in the lead at halftime after two goals in two minutes from Aissa Mandi and William Carvalho toppled Fede Valverde’s opener for the defending champions

But Betis defender Emerson, on loan from Barcelona, ​​endured a nightmare start in the second half as he scored an own goal before being sent off for knocking down Luka Jovic after the striker was sent off

VAR intervened again in Madrid’s favor in the 82nd minute as Marc Bartra was deemed to have cleared with his arm, leaving Ramos to trade the winning penalty

Betis were furious with full-time referee Ricard de Burgos and although the red card seemed right they were not given the chance to concede the penalty, Bartra apparently pushed in the ball by Borja Mayoral of Madrid

Madrid, however, breathed a sigh of relief as their opening victory secured after starting the season with a goalless draw at Real Sociedad last weekend

« I do not enter the referees », said Zidane « We suffered of course but in the end we got the three points »

Ramos’ conversion from the spot seemed familiar to him after his three penalties in Madrid’s title race last season, but it was an unusually sloppy defensive display from Zinedine Zidane

It was the first time they had conceded twice in the first half of a league game since Zidane returned as coach 18 months ago and it would have cost them if their opponents had been less generous

Betis’ defeat ends what had been a perfect start under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, after two out of two wins against Alaves and Real Valladolid

« From Madrid’s first goal until the end of the first half we were much better, » said Mandi. « But we couldn’t get a clean sheet in the second half »

Madrid’s victory puts early pressure on Barcelona, ​​who start with Lionel Messi back in the fold at home against Villarreal on Sunday Atletico Madrid will also play their first game on Sunday at home against Granada

Eden Hazard was still absent in Sevilla, not even included on the bench as Zidane continues to insist the Belgian get back to his top form before returning to action

Jovic had a rare start up front but the Serbian missed a good opportunity before leaving in the second half and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he left before the transfer window was over

Benzema made the Madrid opener, refusing to give in on the right, where he squirmed in space and crossed for Valverde to shoot at the near post

Ramos should have made two, but struck from eight yards and then Betis found their rhythm, exerting more and more pressure as half progressed

They equalized as Mandi climbed over Casemiro to head for a cross from the excellent Sergio Canales, who then threw a second two minutes later, sidelining Nabil Fekir, who fired for Carvalho to the left. to pass and return home

But Madrid were level three minutes after the restart as Emerson drove Carvajal’s cross into his own net, then the Betis defender was sent off on trial for piling up behind Jovic’s back, who had been put through by Benzema

Ramos folded the free kick wide, Benzema passed the post and substitute Borja scored a finish, only for De Burgos to come back and decide Bartra had deflected the ball with his arm Ramos was not wrong

Valencia’s poor start to the season under new manager Javi Gracia continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw earlier by newly promoted Huesca Real Sociedad beat Elche 3-0 as she finished scoreless between Alaves and Getafe
