Real Madrid came back to the top of the Primera Liga after a 2-0 home victory over Real Betis on Thursday.

The Real captain Raul wasted several good chances but redeemed himself in the 67th minute when Betis defender David Rivas brought him down.

Robinho scored in the resulting confusion and Real felt aggrieved to have the goal disallowed but Raul settled the matter when he converted the spot-kick for his third league goal of the season.

Schuster took off Real's leading goal scorer Sneijder after 79 minutes and brought on Baptista despite another lively performance from the Dutchman. Just six minutes later the Brazilian popped up to latch on to Mahamadou Diarra's headed flick and score a superb overhead kick.

The win left the champions on 13 points after five games and sent them back to the top of Liga.

Villarreal slipped to second with 12 points, ahead of Valencia on goal difference.

Barcelona are fourth on 11 after Lionel Messi inspired the Catalans to a 4-1 thumping of Real Zaragoza on Wednesday.
