The result gives Zinedine Zidane's men 71 points from 33 matches, three ahead of third-placed Barcelona who have two more games yet to play.

The draw also means Atletico can extend their league lead on Sunday when they visit Athletico Bilbao at the San Mames Stadium.

Meanwhile, Betis maintained their hopes of a European place, climbing them into sixth, one ahead of Villareal who host Barca on Sunday.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Varane, Nacho, Casemiro, Modric, Isco, Rodrygo, Asensio, Benzema.

Betis starting XI (TBC): Bravo, Emerson, Mandi, Ruiz, Alex, Guido, Guardado, Canales, Joaquin, Ruibal, Iglesias.
