Esther, Weir, Zornoza and Nahikari were on the scoresheet as the team recorded their seventh win at the Di Stéfano stadium.

Real Madrid overcame Betis thanks to a superb team display at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium to claim their seventh home win of the season. Esther opened the scoring in the first half before Weir, Zornoza and Nahikari rounded off the win in the second half in a game that our team dominated from start to finish. These three points ensure Alberto Toril's side continue their winning streak in 2023 after beating Madrid CFF in the league and Fundación Albacete in the cup.
The madridistas kicked off the game brightly and had a chance in the first few minutes when Feller got on the end of a good pass from Athenea in the six-yard box, but the goalkeeper was able to keep it out. Zornoza's long-range effort on 12 minutes finished in the hands of Thalmann. Despite the superiority in attack, the Green and Whites' goalkeeper deny them from taking a 1-0 lead. Esther had a chance in a one-on-one in the 32nd minute, but she shot over. Two minutes later, however, the striker made no mistake. Feller made a superb run into the opposition box and pulled the ball back for Esther, who netted her tenth league goal of the season.
Real Madrid settle the match
Leles went in search of an equaliser shortly after the break with an effort from the edge of the area, which Misa saved without any problems. Athenea broke forward in the 49th minute and slipped in a good pass to set up Weir, who made it 2-0. The game began one way traffic for Real Madrid and, after an hour's play, they put game to bed. First Zornoza got the better of the keeper in a one-on-one after a pass from Esther (64'), and just one minute later Nahikari made it four thanks to a fine one-touch finish inside the box. Both sides had chances to score more, but the scoreline stayed the same until the full-time whistle.
