The home side headed into the game on the back on two league wins, whereas Bilbao trudged in having lost the last three.

And Betis could not have wished for a better start as Rubén Castro put them in front from the penalty spot after just two minutes after Gorka Iraizoz brought down Salva Sevilla inside the box.

But the visitors found themselves on level terms shortly before the break.

Ander Herrera slipped a deadly through ball straight between the two Betis central defenders who were a great distance apart.

Aduriz latched on to the pass and he showed wonderful composure to scoop the ball over onrushing Betis goalkeeper Adrián and into the net.

Both sides had chances to win it after the break, but Betis were thankful to Adrián for a string of late saves to keep scores level.
