Defeat to Betis leaves Madrid seven points behind Barça

Defeat to Betis leaves Madrid seven points behind Barça

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has called for calm despite his side's home defeat to Real Betis in La Liga at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Following Wednesday night's shock result, in which only added further woe onto Real Madrid's winless start at home in La Liga, Los Blancos now find themselves seven points adrift of title rivals Barcelona, a difference the 145-times capped Spain worldwide said was still not too daunting.

REAL MADRID captain Sergio Ramos has pulled no punches as he described the side's start to the La Liga season as "f***ing bad".

Anthony Martial got in on the act after the break before Lloyd Dyer grabbed a stoppage-time consolation for Burton.

Earlier, Alaves sacked Argentine coach Luis Zubeldia after just four games in charge as they slipped to the bottom of La Liga with a 3-0 defeat at home to Villarreal. Former Real Madrid player Antonio Adan is line to start against his boyhood club and will be vital to the visitors' fortunes on Wednesday.

After struggling with injury last season, Gareth Bale has been a constant presence in Madrid's first-team this term, scoring two goals in seven games in all competitions.

A 3-1 win at Real Sociedad left Madrid fourth in LaLiga after four matches, four points behind rivals Barcelona who are yet to drop a point. We had a good match in San Sebastian [against Real Sociedad].

And in injury time Antonio Sanabria stunned the Bernabeu with the victor to condemn Real to their first league defeat of the season.

"Last year we won games maybe we did not deserve, now it is the opposite".

"I feel really happy".

"Things have not gone well but I insist, you have to have peace of mind, there's a lot left". I am thrilled to continue making history with the greatest club in the world.

"I have always said we need to have patience with him", added the Frenchman.

Zidane said he only felt disappointed by the 1-1 draw against Levante on September 9 and dismissed a question suggesting the title race was already over. "I care about the day to day and I'm not looking further than that, this is complicated". The starlet's dribbling skills and creativity make him a tantalising prospect, and England fans will also be watching the player's progress with excitement.
