Second goal of the night from the French striker…. Great finish as the forward slots it into the corner with his right boot.
Outclassed and outplayed… far from a happy birthday for Deportivo Alavés who only managed to take the game to Real Madrid in the opening phase of tonight’s game. Goals from Casemiro, Benzema and a Hazard effort on the stroke of halt time see the side from the capital in total control.
Alaves on 18 points lurk just above the drop zone and a loss here coupled with a win for either Elche or Osasuna over the weekend would see the men from Vitoria finishing the match-day in the relegation zone.
Pacheco has been the busier of the keepers tonight but his side will need to be more clinical as they look for a way past the men in white.
A hard task for Alaves, just got harder. Difficult to see a way back for the Basque side who have yet to trouble Courtois in this first period. Words and a new approach needed by Abelardo for the second 45′.
