Real Madrid won a precious 4-1 victory over Alaves in the 20th stage of the Spanish Football League, a result that restored calm to the home of the royal club, which lost competition for two championships in less than a week.
Real Madrid spoiled the celebrations of its host, Deportivo Alaves, on the 100th anniversary of its founding, and inflicted a severe double by Karim Benzema in the 41st and 70th minutes, and Eden Hazard and Casemiro’s goals in the 15th and 45th minutes, while Joscelo scored Alaves’ only goal in the 60th minute.
Real Madrid raised its score to 40 points, 4 points behind Atletico Madrid, who has played 17 games so far, compared to 19 games for Real.
And Alaves stuck to 18 points in 17th place after suffering a fourth consecutive defeat in the competition.
Real played today’s match in the absence of its French coach Zinedine Zidane, due to his infection with the new Corona virus.
Real Madrid had been eliminated from the Spanish Super Cup semi-finals after losing to Athletic Bilbao, and then eliminated from the 32nd round of the King’s Cup after defeating Alquiano in the third division, results that caused widespread criticism of Zidane.
