Betis then looked to open the deadlock when Guido Rodríguez fired a shot wide of the post. In the 15th minute, Juanmi almost found a way through, but his header flew over the crossbar. Shortly after, Luka Modric tried his luck from the edge of the area, but Silva was on hand to save.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said ,” I’d give ourselves top marks because it’s been a season where we started well and we’ve finished stronger. We’ve been consistent. Sometimes we’ve played extremely well and sometimes not so well, but the team’s always shown commitment. We have to praise the individual performances of Courtois, Karim, Vinicius as well as the rest of the squad. The collective work has been excellent and so have the players who have made fewer appearances”.
