WATCH: Benzema with a stone-cold stunner to save Madrid's blushes
The Karim Benzema show.
El Gran Derbi, between Sevilla and Real Betis, is widely regarded as the best derby in Spain. The local rivalry between the Andalucian clubs creates a unique atmosphere, when fans are in the stadium, but this weekend it underwhelmed in an empty Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Sevilla clinched all three points thanks to Youssef El-Nesyri's brilliant finish from a ludicrously tight angle after rounding the goalkeeper, extending the gap between them and Betis to nine points.
Elsewhere, Karim Benzema salvaged Real Madrid from an embarrassing loss to Elche with a brace that included one of the goals of the season so far: a left footed strike from outside the box after a one-two with Rodrygo.
