Real Betis fans were left broken-hearted as their former star man Dani Ceballos scored a late winner for Real Madrid onย Sunday

Dani Ceballos scored a late winning free-kick against his old club as Real Madrid battled to a 2โ€“1 LaLiga victory at Real Betis. Madrid had taken an early lead at the Benito Villamarin on Sunday thanks to a fine drive scored by Ballon dโ€™Or winner Luka Modric.

But Sergio Canales hit back with a goal that survived a lengthy VAR review to seemingly claim a point for Quique Setienโ€™s side. Former Betis star Ceballos had other ideas, though, coming off the bench to net a 20-yard free-kick with two minutes to go to move Madrid up to fourth.

Madrid started well and they took the lead in the 13th minute, Modric blasting a drive into the top-left corner from just outside the penalty area.

Vinicius Junior fired straight at Pau Lopez at the end of a flowing move as Madrid kicked through the gears, Antonio Barragan making a wonderful challenge to halt another rapid break. The impressive Giovani Lo Celso sending Canales clear of the Madrid defense to squeeze his shot through the goalkeeper and over the line.

The goal was subject to a lengthy VAR review, giving the home fans an agonizing wait, but replays showed Dani Carvajal was playing Canales onside and the goal stood.

Solari ignored Isco as he used his last two subs to bring on Ceballos and Brahim Diaz for his LaLiga debut, with the decision justified in the 88th minute. William Carvalho gave away a free-kick on the edge of the Betis box and Ceballos took responsibility, bending the ball around the wall to beat Lopez.
