Real Madrid hosted Real Betis in a midweek fixture in Spain, playing their Round 1 fixture that was delayed at the start of the season due to player protests. After picking up her first start for Madrid over the weekend, Raso was named on the bench in the fixture. 

The home side got off to a fast start with Maite Oroz finding the back of the net just two minutes in to give Real Madrid a narrow 1-0 lead heading into the break. Raso came off the bench to start the second half and made an immediate impact on the game, opening her account for her new side after getting on the end of Athenea del Castillo's cross into the box, slotting her chance past the keeper to double the home side's lead.

A goal to Naomie Feller, fellow new signing Signe Bruun and an own goal to Real Betis gave Madrid a 5-0 lead. Betis clawed one back in stoppage time to make it 5-1, with Real Madrid collecting their third win of the season in as many games and moving to the top of the table.
