Zouhair Feddal wore a nervous expression when VAR went back to check a potential handball a little later, though Betis' luck was in - the video system deeming no offence had occurred.

The Catalans as a outcome failed to stretch their lead at the top of the standings, though remain at the summit after second-place Real Madrid failed to see off Rea Betis late in the day.

Captain Ramos insisted Los Blancos did all they could to carve out a lead but shrugged off the suggestion LaLiga's traditional big three of Madrid, Barca and Atletico Madrid are beginning to falter, despite all three sides failing to win on Saturday.
