Cristiano Ronaldo's return to league action was ruined on Wednesday night, as Real Betis shocked the champions with a last-gasp winner.
It was the visitors that started the brighter at the Santiago Bernabeu and they could have gone one up if it hadn't been for Dani Carvajal scrambling back to clear Antonio Sanabria's shot off the line.
The second opportunity for the midfielder, who was the star of the opening 45 minutes, came from the right-hand side, as Dani Carvajal took advantage of space left by Betis' Cristian Tello.
It was Modric again who crafted Madrid's final chance of the half, as he threaded a ball through to Isco whose low drive was met quickly by the diving Adan.
It was Ronaldo who fluffed his lines within five minutes of the restart, skying a perfectly driven Gareth Bale cross with an open goal to aim for.
