Nothing lasts forever: Madrid's scoring streak comes to dreadful end

European and Spain's La Liga Champions, Real Madrid loss at home 1-0 to Real Betis for the first time in the 2017/2018 La Liga season. We'll do our best to win it, and in our next home game in the League, we have to do everything to win it.

How strong that interest is and whether Real Madrid will make a winter move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.

Real Madrid will be looking for more titles to add to those already won since the streak started early in 2016 and in Cristiano Ronaldo they have their own Jose Manuel Moreno. It does not hurt him to play with the ball and to bring others into play.

The home side dominated the first half but were unable to find the back of the net despite Betis conceding nine corners, as the teams went into the break at 0-0.

Still, under pressure Betis scarcely deserved victory and their goalkeeper, Madrileno and former Madrid goalkeeper Antonio Adan, had the game of his life.

And Bale secured the three points as he sped past Rodrigues and dinked the ball over Geronimo Rulli for just his second goal of the season on the hour mark.

After the restart it was a different story as Madrid laid siege to Adán's goal.

Real Madrid have not been able to win a single match at home this season, having ended the first two in draws against Valencia and Levante.

"It's clear, we have to live with it", Zidane confessed.

Zidane substituted the midfielder in the 70th minute alongside Isco.

Total 22 shots released by Madrid with eight of them on target, but no goals.

Once the game got back underway, a crazy 60 seconds for Rodrigues swung the match back in Madrid's favour.

"He has been diagnosed with a partial dislocation of the right shoulder", Madrid said in a statement. He is a three-time Champions League winner and two-time La Liga champ during his tenure with the Spanish soccer power.

"We didn't have a great game, but we didn't have a bad one either". "We had 26 or 27 chances, this is football".

The French forward, 29, has put pen to paper on the contract, as he commits his future to the Galacticos until at least 2021.
