Frank Rijkaard was "ashamed" by Barcelona´s capitulation against Real Betis and has offered his apologies to the club´s supporters.

Barca looked set to cut Real Madrid´s advantage at the summit to just one point after storming into a 2-0 lead after 15 minutes at the Manuel Ruiz de Lopera stadium on Saturday.

But Betis turned the game on its head in the second half and quickfire strikes from Edu (two) and Juanito earned a shock 3-2 win for the home side, who also had the luxury of being able to miss a penalty during a superb display after the break.
