The Brazilian duo of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo ensured Real Madrid maintain a 100 percent perfect record after a 2-1 win over Real Betis in the La Liga encounter at Santiago Bernabeu.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti made just two changes from the win over Espanyol last week, with Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal replacing Antonio Rudiger and Lucas Vazquez.

Real Betis started the match well as they were denied a penalty before Vinicius Jr beat the offside trap to run onto a ball and covert his chance and put Real Madrid ahead in Santiago Bernabeu.

Los Blancos’ joy was short-lived as the away side equalised eight minutes later through Sergio Canales’ low strike pass keeper Thibaut Courtois in goal after Borja Iglesias flicked a throw-in into the midfielder’s path.

Real Betis saw its perfect record spoiled by the loss which was decided by a Rodrygo goal in the 65th minute after Fede Valverde got the byline to pick out the Brazilain forward one minute after coming into the match.

Second-half substitute Joaquin came close to creating the equaliser for Betis 10 minutes later when he picked out Canales, who saw his strike tip around the post by Courtois.

That proved to be the final chance of the second half, as Los Blancos claimed their fourth straight win while Betis suffer their first loss after starting the campaign with three straight wins.
