A crucial three points for Cosmin Contra's side lifted them out of the relegation zone and put them 13 points clear of Betis with just four games remaining.

Betis have suffered a torrid campaign after an impressive seventh-placed finish last season.

Coach Pepe Mel was sacked in December and his replacement Juan Carlos Garrido lasted only five league games before he suffered a similar fate.

Current boss Gabriel Humberto Calderon hasn't been able to turn things around either as Los Verdiblancos have still only amassed five wins in 34 league games this season.
