Betis left-back Riza Durmisi opened the scoring with a first-half free-kick, before Gabriel Mercado levelled from close range after the break.
Vicente Iborra stabbed home the winner with 14 minutes to play after Steven N'Zonzi flicked on Samir Nasri's free-kick from what appeared to be an offside position.
