Real Madrid’s dismal season came to a dismal end as Real Betis completed the set with victories over both Barcelona at the Camp Nou and Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu to add to their home win over Atlético Madrid earlier on in the campaign. Quique Setién still paid the price for a disappointing campaign with his job, being dismissed hours after his second successive victory at the famous stadium.
La Liga came to a close in a tight encounter in which neither team allowed any space in the first half. In the second, Loren Morón broke the deadlock as he broke free and connected with Andrés Guardado’s cross to score, with former Real Madrid man Jesé Rodríguez reluctantly adding a second late on.
Our tactical analysis will use statistics to identify what key points Zinedine Zidane can take from the final outing of the season for his Real Madrid team, even if the next time they take to the field it could be a team with an entirely different complexion.
Zidane gave Keylor Navas the chance to say farewell to the Bernabéu with a starting spot, potentially also the case for the likes of Marcos Llorente, but there was no such opportunity for Gareth Bale.
