LaLiga: Real Betis vs Real Madrid: Zidane speaks on 5-3 victory


Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has described their 5-3 win over Real Betis in LaLiga on Sunday, as a “crazy” match.

The champions came from 2-1 behind at the break to win.

Marco Asensio struck twice and Sergio Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema also got on target.

Madrid, who won 3-1 against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek, have now scored 23 goals in their last five La Liga matches.

“It was a bit of a crazy game, but I like that,” Zidane told reporters.

“Betis are in fantastic form, and played very well.

“They controlled the final half hour of the first half. I don’t focus on the three goals conceded, I focus on the five goals scored.

“We started very well, got a goal, we then sat back a bit and we do not like it when we sit back.

“In the second half we pressed high, ran hard and with quality we have if we play in the opposition half we can make it difficult for any opponent.

“This shows that we have character. We thought we could change the game – and we changed it.”
