Carlo Ancelotti fielded a full-strength side against Betis, a squad which could well be the same the team who will take on Liverpool in next weekend's Champions League final in Paris.

Despite, the final league game at the Bernabeu ending in a stalemate, the biggest moment on the night came when Marcelo was being substituted on for Ferland Mendy for what is expected to be his final home game for the Los Blancos.

The Brazilian is expected to depart the club as one of their all-time greats, having spent well over a decade in the capital and helping them to several trophies in his time at the club.

Real Madrid finished the game bearing in mind, that they have to avoid picking up any unnecessary injuries ahead of the UCL final on May 28.
