La Liga: Real Madrid Held To Draw

Real Madrid's title hopes were dented as Zinedine Zidane's side were held to a goalless draw at home to Real Betis.

Real are two points behind Atletico Madrid, who play Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. Barcelona are third, three behind Real but with two games in hand.

Rodrygo struck the crossbar with a mis-hit cross as the defending champions laboured against Manuel Pellegrini's Europa League hopefuls.

Guido Rodriguez was denied by Thibaut Courtois with Betis' best chance.

One positive for Real, who beat Cadiz on Wednesday to move top before Atletico responded with victory over Huesca on Thursday, was the return of Eden Hazard after injury.
