1-0. 8 '. Nico Gaitán takes advantage of a free ball inside the box after a cross from Vrsaljko.
Atlético de Madrid came out with a hectic pace to try to get the control of the match and soon benefited from its control. A break from Vrsaljko ended with a free ball inside the box and Gaitán managed to push it into the net. Only 8 minutes into the game and the team already had the match where he wanted. Gaitán played a good first half, with several combinations with his teammates, but that control needed to materialise in a second goal.
After the break, Atlético tried to score and Torres and Carrasco had their chances but run into Adán. Betis tried to tie but the scoreboard would not change thanks to the good defensive work of the whole team. Third consecutive League victory after the one against Las Palmas at the Calderón and Eibar at Ipurua. And with the maximum efficiency, four goals scored and none conceded.
