Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Kalidou Koulibaly’s “Little Brother” interview!
Real Madrid arguably had the lead in the Champions League. The Merengue will try next Saturday to get a 14th C1 against Liverpool at the Stade de France. Before that, Carlo Ancelotti’s men played their last match of the season in La Liga. Already assured of the title, the latter failed to offer a victory to their supporters against Real Bétis (0-0).

Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos had however been dangerous at the start of the match, without success (11th). In the second half, the Frenchman could have increased his lead in the scorer rankings but his recovery with the flat foot was stopped by the Sevillian goalkeeper (51st). Real Madrid therefore ends its La Liga campaign with 86 points and can now turn to the grand final of the Champions League.
Real Madrid were held in check at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium by Real Bétis on behalf of the last day of La Liga. Both teams failed to find the fault. Los Blancos will face Liverpool next week in the Champions League final.
