Nothing to separate Betis and Deportivo

RC Deportivo La Coruña maintained their recent momentum with a hard earned 1-1 draw against Real Betis Balompié in Seville that lifted them a point clear of the drop zone.

RC Deportivo La Coruña stretched their unbeaten sequence to six Liga matches and edged one point clear of the relegation zone courtesy of a 1-1 draw at Real Betis Balompié, who remain seventh. 

The game in Seville was just seven minutes old when a dizzying counterattack from the Galician team ended with top scorer Riki turning in Bruno Gama's cut-back. Betis toiled in vain to respond before half-time, with Castro Rubén blazing over when well-placed and Joel Campbell's shot fizzing past a post.

The Andalusian outfit continued to probe, however, and shattered Deportivo's resistance in the 49th minute when Jorge Molina fired in from outside the area after combining with Beñat. Both sides squandered opportunities to wrest back the initiative, with Kaká heading over for the visitors and Betis's Beñat sending a venomous free-kick centimetres wide.

Deportivo duly moved out of the division's bottom three, with north-east rivals RC Celta de Vigo replacing them in 18th spot, ahead of Real Zaragoza and RCD Mallorca. Betis lie four points off Valencia CF in sixth.
