Real Betis move above La Liga danger zone

AAP logoAAP 18/11/2016 By Warwick Barr

Real have Betis moved out of the Spanish danger zone with a 2-0 home defeat of mid-table Las Palmas, in what was a promising start for new coach Victor Sanchez.

Betis took the lead in the 27th minute when Bruno headed in a near-post corner from former Spain winger Joaquin.

Just before half-time, Joaquin sent off a similarly clever corner - and Aissa Mandi made it 2-0 with a deft near-post header.

The win took Betis up to 12th place, well above the relegation zone.

Sanchez took over as coach two weeks ago from Gustavo Poyet.
