Los Blancos Waste Chance to Go Top After Goalless Draw

Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Barcelona's slip-up as Zinedine Zidane's side were held to a 0-0 draw by Real Betis in LaLiga, with Ferland Mendy missing a glorious chance.

Three goals in the space of seven second-half minutes saw Levante defeat leaders Barca 3-1 earlier on Saturday, but Madrid offered little for much of the encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu as they failed to move above their bitter rivals.

Eden Hazard had an early goal disallowed by VAR, but instead of paving the way for a dominant Madrid display, Los Blancos were found lacking going forward, even if Joel Robles did make a fine save from Sergio Ramos just before the break.

Mendy should have made the breakthrough shortly after the hour, but an abysmal finish from the left-back summed up a frustrating outing for Madrid, who nevertheless moved level on points with Barca, though they trail on goal difference.
