SEVILLE, Spain (AP)
Real Betis failed to capitalize on its chances and was held to a 0-0 draw at home against Valladolid on Monday in a mid-table clash in the Spanish league.
Betis was the more attacking side and had created five chances compared to none for the visitors halfway through the second half, but poor finishing and solid goalkeeping from Daniel Hernandez kept the game scoreless.
Valladolid then upped the pace until Serbian defender Antonio Rukavina was sent off for a second yellow card in the 75th minute for a foul, with replays indicating he had made a clean challenge.
Betis defender Antonio Amaya was sent off in injury time for a dangerous high kick, leaving both teams to finish with 10 men.
