Real Madrid skipper Iker Casillas called for unity after defeat to Real Betis on Saturday.

Madrid's title hopes are slipping away after dropping another three points in Seville.

Casillas said: "It was a hard blow and it's put us two steps back, but we have to be more united than ever and soldier on. I understand that the fans are affected, but we have to look ahead, think about the next game at home against Atlético Madrid, and continue to win."
