James Rodriguez was offside for Real Madrid’s goal v Betis (Videos)

Real Madrid escaped from Betis with a 1-1 draw tonight, thanks to Karim Benzema’s late equalizer.

Los Blancos had trailed through an early Betis goal, and had they lost they could probably have kissed goodbye to the title race, but the draw keeps their hopes alive.

It must be said that fortune was on their side with the goal: James Rodgriguez was in an offside position as the first pass was made, and the Colombian then squared the ball for Karim Benzema, who tapped in.
