Madrid Wins 1-0 At Betis Amid Mbappé Transfer Speculation

BARCELONA, Spain: Amid rising speculation in the Spanish capital that Kylian Mbapp could soon be on his way, Real Madrid won 1-0 at Real Betis in the Spanish league on Saturday.

Right back Dani Carvajal volleyed in a pass from Karim Benzema in the 61st minute on a counterattack led by Vincius Jnior, who again proved decisive to Carlo Ancelottis side.

The match was Madrids last before the summer transfer window closes Tuesday night. Paris Saint-Germain acknowledged this week that it had rejected an offer from Madrid to sign Mbapp. But the French club added that it was still open to negotiations over a blockbuster move for the player seen by many as soccer’s leading talent for years to come.

Vincius was the focus of Madrids attack in the Brazilians first start of the season after he had come off the bench to score goals in a 4-1 win at Alavs and a 3-3 draw at Levante.

Eden Hazard lost his spot in the starting 11 amid rumors that he could be on the move to Juventus to fill the hole left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United in this summer’s shuffle of soccer’s top stars.

Hazard went on in the 77th to replace Vincius.
