It's another three points for Real Madrid Castilla as they got the better of Betis Deportivo (0-3) on their second successive visit to Seville. Our academy side clinched their seventh win in the Primera RFEF with a very complete display, as Arribas (2) and Santos got on the scoresheet. Raúl's boys close out the year with a big win as they continue their rise up the table.
The madridistas looked disciplined from the off and quickly set about carving out goal-scoring opportunities. A corner whipped in by Arribas was headed towards goal by Latasa and came close to beating Rebollo. It took just 7 minutes for Santos to put his team in front, rising above his marker at the back post to turn home a David García cross with ease. Our team continued to press on and Arribas swiftly had a shot deflected wide, before the hosts responded with 20' on the clock but Fekir's effort failed to find the target. Just before the teams headed into the dressing room, Arribas had a great chance to make it 0-2, but Rebollo did well to keep his effort out.
Arribas at the double
Soon after the restart, Castilla did double their advantage thanks to a superb team move which sent Santos into space to cross for Arribas from the right, the forward stealing a march on his man to make it 0-2. The madridistas weren't happy to stop there though and with 58 minutes gone, Latasa headed wide. Then, on 70’, the Whites had the ball in the net once more when Arribas made the most of a sublime David García pass in the box. Our youth team looked increasingly dominant as the minutes ticked by and Marvin could well have had a fourth but his shot skimmed inches wide of the target. The score ultimately remained at 3-0, clinching Castilla a seventh win of the season so far.
