Betis to make up for lost time

Real Betis Balompié and Real Madrid CF will finish their abandoned match on 8 October.
Real Betis Balompié and Real Madrid CF will play the remaining 47 minutes of their abandoned match ten days ago on 8 October.

Floodlight failure
The match at the Manuel Ruiz de Lopera stadium on 14 September was called off after a floodlight failure in the 43rd minute, with Betis leading 1-0 after a goal from Capi.

Betis bow
Meanwhile, Betis, who have been ordered by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to play Saturday's home match against FC Barcelona in Huelva as punishment for crowd trouble during last season's Seville derby, have finally agreed to administer the tickets for the game. There had been concerns over the number of their supporters who would be able to fit into the Colombino stadium.
