Real Madrid had to work hard for their first win this season in La Liga on Saturday night, as they managed to go past a resilient Real Betis 3-2 thanks to Sergio Ramos converting a late penalty awarded through VAR.

Madrid started off on a positive note and were rewarded when Valverde took advantage of a great cross from Benzema to net the ball at the near post in the 14th minute, giving his team a 1-0 lead. EFE-EPA
