Barcelona loanee Juan Miranda scored his first La Liga goal on Sunday as Real Betis beat Osasuna 2-0 at El Sadar.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side ended a run of three straight defeats with the victory, and both goals came late on in the match.

Borja Iglesias opened the scoring on 77 minutes with his first La Liga goal since all the way back in January 2020.

Miranda then struck in stoppage time, just eight minutes after coming on as a substitute, with his first La Liga strike to secure an important three points for Los Verdiblancos.

The left-back was loaned to Real Betis for the rest of the 2020-21 season at the start of October after cutting a two-year loan with Schalke short in the summer.

Miranda, who began his career at Betis, made his first appearance back at the Benito Villamarín in a 3-0 defeat to Real Sociedad. Sunday’s outing was just his second of the season.
