Full time! That is probably a fair and good result for Atleti in the circumstances.

Bravo blocks again! He denies Correa.
SAVE! Bravo denies Correa! Brilliant stop, and Emerson clears.
- OffGuido RodríguezReal Betis

Betis change. Guido off, Carvalho on.
10 miniutes remaining. Feels like a point would suit Atleti from here.
- OffKieran TrippierAtlético Madrid
- OnŠime VrsaljkoAtlético Madrid
Trippier off with a back issue, Sime Vsaljko is on.
SAVE! Jan Oblak denies Lainez just seconds after he comes on. Decent effort from the substitute.
- OffAitor RuibalReal Betis
- OnDiego LainezReal Betis
That was Ruibal's last action. He's been replaced by Diego Lainez.
BLOCK! Gimenez, wow! Betis break and the ball finds Ruibal, but the Uruguayan gets there to tackle. Perfect timing and a crucial moment.
Emerson meets the kick with a header but Trippier eventually clears.
As we enter the final twenty minutes, Alex Moreno wins a free kick in a good position for Betis. Fekir over it.
Felix's injury has been an issue for Atleti. They've lost control of the game.

Joaquin is replaced by Juanmi for Betis.
Canales' shot is weak and Oblak collects it.
Betis look like they sre turning the screw. Fekir finds his way into the area and crosses. Trippier clears.
Emerson's cross just evades Joaquin but Atleti concede the corner. Losing Carrasco from the left has allowed Betis more freedom down the right.
At the other end, Emerson heads a Betis corner towards goal. Oblak saves, but poor defending from Atleti.
Koke's corner is cleared by Guido Rodriguez.
First booking of the night for Carrassco.
SAVE! Bravo denies Carrassco after a lovely pass by Saul!

Lucas Torreira is coming on for Felix. Looks like a system change.
Felix is down again. He's got to go off.

Betis get us underway.
- End of 1st Half
Joao Felix is down. Not what Simeone will want. The half time whistle has gone. Atleti started and ended the half well and will be friustrated to be level.
Really poor ball from Koke to Hermoso sees the latter dispossessed, but as has been the issue throughout this half, Betis can't break at pace.
Betis are lacking intensity and Atleti have regained contol. Another key run by Correa results in a cross which is half cleared.
You can see why Atleti have won every game without Suarez, despite his goals. Felix and Correa are finding very good positions and pulling Betis' defence apart. Carrassco really profiting.
Carrasci shoots into the side netting after a good knockdown by Felix.
CHANCE! Oblak denies Emerson!
CHANCE! Koke finds Trippier with a brilliant pass. The Englishman switches the play to Correa, who has the beating of Bartra. His cross, again, finds Bravo.
Poor moment all round. Awful pass sees Betis defence surrender possession to Correa, who shoots wildly from distance in spite of the fact he was in space.
Hector Herrera's free kick is quick and finds Carrasco, who feeds Correa. His cross is straight at Claudio Bravo.
Interesting to see Joao Felix picking up a deeper space between defence and midfield. Hw's seeing a lot of the ball and causing some issues.
Atleti ease mounting pressure, winning a free kick after Ruibal fouls Saul.
- GoalTelloReal Betis
GOOOOOAAALL! Atleti pay the price. Tello volleys home the equaliser. They didn't learn their lesson from Alex Moreno's last cross.
Late flag against Correa but better movement from him. He comes out to the left and looks for Saul. Felix involved, too.
Gimenez heads Alex Moreno\'s corner away. Betis are beginning to push forward and find Fekir a little. Atletico cannot afford to drop too deep.
CHANCE! Brilliant cross by Hermoso is met by Saul, but he can't find the net with his header. All Atleti here, they've been fantastic.
Correa wins a free kick for Atleti.
Emerson heads Koke's corner clear. Betis sre soon crowded out, back come Atleti.
Atleti are continuing to press high and they are making good inroads.
Lovely link up with Felix and Correa. Atleti have started with purpose and killed any fears of struggling for goals without Suarez.
- GoalYannick CarrascoAtlético Madrid
Great cross from Trippier, looking for Correa. Positive start by the visitors. Atlet9i pressurising.
- 1st Half
Atleti get us underway!
Correction, La Real drew with Valencia.
If Betis win today, they go ahead of Villarreal and Real Sociedad, eho both lost this weekend.
I'm on Twitter @harrydecosemo so send your thoughts on the game as it happens. Almost time for a crucial clash for Cholo Simeone and Atleti.
15 minutes to go! The hosts are ready!
Nabil Fekir will be a huge player for Betis tonight, but they do tend to struggle for goals. Sergio Canales is their top scorer with seven this term.
Huge blow for Atleti to be without their top scorer today. Big chance for Correa, Felix must take some control, too. Fiver in midfield, as it looks, could give them a foothold.
Betis' slim Champions League hopes are fading. But their form is good heading into this one. They've won four of their last six.
It won't be easy for the visitors tonight, though. Los Rojiblancos have won just twice in their last six in all competitions.
After watching El Clasico last night and seeing Real Madrid usurp them at the top of the league, Atleti, who have been shaky of late, will be desperate to hit back immediately.
Atleti, minus Luis Suarez, line up like this.
