Madrid: A minute`s silence will be held before Real Madrid`s La Liga game at home to Levante later on Sunday and the players will wear black armbands following the death of former Real goalkeeper Antonio Betancort at the age of 78.

After joining from Las Palmas, Betancort kept goal for Real in 177 official games between 1961 and 1971 and twice won the `Zamora` trophy for La Liga`s most effective goalkeeper, the European champions said on their website (www.realmadrid.com).

He won the European Cup in 1966, Real`s sixth when they beat Partizan Belgrade 2-1 in the final in Brussels, as well as six Spanish league titles and two Spanish Cups.
