The La Liga title race is well and truly underway now. With Barcelona dropping points earlier on Sunday, Real Madrid were left in prime position to leapfrog them back to the top of the table.
However, things started out on a bum note for the Galacticos from the capital, as a howler from goalkeeper Keylor Navas saw the hosts fall behind in the 24th minute. The Costa Rican allowed Antonio Sanabria's effort to slip from his grasp and roll agonisingly over the line.
Luckily, Cristiano Ronaldo was on hand to restore parity just before the break, giving Zinedine Zidane's men hope of swinging the result back in their favour.
As the game wore on, Madrid struggled to break Betis down, and though they had their chances, nothing seemed to be going in as the match had a 1-1 draw written all over it.
But then, with just minutes to go, there was one man who came to the rescue. One man, who so many times this season has been Madrid's saviour when time is against them to step out from the shadows and cover himself in glory: Sergio Ramos.
With 10 minutes remaining, the centre-back made his way into the box for a corner from the right hand side. It was swung in perfectly and he met it with his head to send the fans in the stadium into raptures.
Once again he came to the rescue to nick all three points when things looked lost as he has done on 10 previous occasions already this term.
But for those watching on Sky at home in the UK, one thing will have perhaps stood out even more than the goal.
Just as the corner was taken, the commentator seemed to predict that the goal was about to come, saying: "This is round about the time the ultras begin chanting for Sergio Ramos and a goal..."
And just as the words fell out of his mouth there is the man himself to nod Real into the lead.
Magic, psychic, or just slightly predictable?
Either way, one thing that can't be argued is just how important Ramos has been for Real this season, and should they come away with any silverware this season they will owe him a huge debt of gratitude for his moments efforts in front of both goals this season.
