Real consolidate first place with Alaves win

The Colombian worldwide has started just 7 La Liga games so far this campaign with the likes of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Isco all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Real Madrid stand atop La Liga with a two point lead and a game in hand, giving them a fairly commanding position - but one that they know can disappear in an instant if they slip up at all with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid snapping at their heels.

But in its first match since a long global break, Zinedine Zidane's team faded in the second half and Alaves threatened to snatch a draw.

"The only thing he wants is to be here and play here".

Alaves: Pacheco 6; Ely 5, Laguardia 5, Feudal 7, Hernandez 6; Camarasa 7, Garcia 6; Gomez 6, Mendez 6, Toquero 7; Deyverson 6. Subs - Romero 5, Santos 5, Katai 5. Was he rushed back too quickly?

The defender has scored seven league goals this season, helping Real produce late escape acts against Barcelona, Deportivo La Coruna and Real Betis, and he has played eight full games in the last five weeks, including 90 minutes for Spain against Israel and France. Great play by Carvajal sees the ball cut back to Benzema who makes no mistake in sweeping home a left footed finish. That's easily the best chance of the match Alaves have had.

Real Madrid took a step closer to ending their LaLiga title drought after easing to victory against Alaves on Sunday afternoon.

Real suffered an injury blow inside 10 minutes when Raphael Varane experienced a recurrence of a hamstring injury and had to be replaced by Carvajal.

The President of Real, according to Eldiario, paid €300,000 to Alejandro De Pedro for him to create a biased publication that criticises referees and defends the Madrid players in an attempt to clean up Perez's club's ironic.

It was an entertaining game with chances at both ends, but fans were made to wait until the 85th minute for the second goal.

There was enough time for a third goal as Nacho headed home from six-yards out, after Bale's free-kick had crashed against the crossbar.
