Real Betis lost their second consecutive match having gone four matches unbeaten at the start of the season in La Liga.
The newly promoted side had a good start winning its first four matches and going to the top of the table but the first team to beat them was Getafe.
In round 6, Betis lost its first match at home as it lost high flying Levante 1-nil. Both losses have been 1-nil.
The team next meets Real Madrid who are currently third on table after beating Espanyol 4-nil.
The meeting between Real Madrid and Real Betis will have ticket brokers excited as the two teams are in the top half of the table and its a match that is sure going to be competitive and draw a lot of people.
Barcelona won by a single goal to get maximum points against Sporting Gijon. Before the match it looked like Barcelona would have another goalfest after scoring five goals in midweek, but Gijon made sure that the margin was as low as was possible.
Another early pacesetter, Valencia also managed a 1-nil win over newly promoted Granada after drawing Chelsea in midweek.
At this stage of the season it would look like the biggest surprise is Levante holding on to second place. Levante is the only team to have beaten Real Madrid this season.
