Betis's livewire winger Junior gave the visitors a deserved lead in the 20th minute, finishing off a hugely impressive counter-attack that had started in their own penalty area, while captain Joaquin doubled their lead in the 35th after another venture down the wing from Junior.

Real Betis took advantage of their numerical strength just two minutes after red card was shown to Rakitic to make the scores 4-2 in the 83rd minute - Sergio Canales the goal scorer.

The Catalans are however sitting atop of the table with 24 points from 12 games - just one point better than Atletico Madrid and seven better than Real Madrid at the moment.

Giovani Lo Celso restored Betis' two-goal lead before Vidal struck to bring the game to 3-2. The talent that Dembele has is hard to find and we have to help him take advantage of it.

Though, the hosts kicked off on a high with Lionel Messi, who recently returns from injury fired a shot towards the opponent's goal but the ball failed to reach its target. Betis, meanwhile, can toast a momentous win that lifts them up to 12th.

"We have been a courageous team in every way", former Spain global Joaquin said.

It took five passes for the opener, the last a first-time drive from William Carvalho to free Junior Firpo down the left.

"We paid dearly for not playing well in the first half".

- Setien is the only away manager to win at the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou in LaLiga in the last 10 seasons. He weaved inside Sergi Roberto and found the net.

Joaquin Sanchez made it 2-0 for Betis before halftime.

Arturo Vidal replaced the jaded Arthur Melo at half-time and, in the 68th minute, Barca pulled one back, with Jordi Alba tugged down by Cristian Tello, and Messi converting the penalty for his eighth league goal of the season.

Barca had chances. Messi's free-kick found Clement Lenglet on the stretch but his lunging finish was tipped over by Pau Lopez. Two substitutes combined for a second, Munir El Haddadi laying on Vidal but no sooner had the comeback begun again, it was halted.

Messi added his second in injury time following a VAR referral but it wasn't enough to stop Barcelona from stumbling to defeat.
