Asensio credits Zidane for Madrid's thrilling Betis comeback

The German worldwide suffered knee ligament damage after colliding with Kylian Mbappe in the 34th minute, however Kroos went on to play the entire 90 minutes which saw Los Blancos secure a two goal advantage over the Parisians after notching a 3-1 win, following a double from Cristiano Ronaldo and a strike from Marcelo.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has been substituted during a Spanish league match at Real Betis with an apparent leg injury.

Marco Asensio headed the Liga champions in front in the 11th minute but Aissa Mandi nodded in an equaliser in the 33rd.

Gareth Bale spurned two good chances to score and it was left to hot-shot winger Asensio to put Madrid back in front with a strike across goal to complete a blistering counterattack. In the second half, we did well, pressing high and running.

That's goal number for Real Madrid in #LaLigaSantander!

"Perhaps he will win it again and then fancy going off for a break".

Joaquin was again instrumental, driving at the Madrid defence and slipping in Junior Firpo, whose shot squirmed through Navas and bounced in off the unfortunate Nacho.

Striker Asensio set up the two late goals.

There was more drama to come as Madrid grew complacent, though, with Betis battling back again when Junior whipped a brilliant low ball in behind the defence for Leon to tap in at the back post.
