Real Madrid – La Liga Decisive again in Mendizorrotza
It was the experienced heads of Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos that got Real Madrid back to winning ways against Alaves with a tried and tested formula in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
Benzema got two goals, Kroos two assists and Modric gave a masterful performance has Los Blancos spoiled Alaves’ centenary celebrations.
The old guard ran the show, pulling the strings and steering the ship back on course.
Benzema consolidated his position as the club’s top scorer and moved onto ten LaLiga Santander goals, two behind Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri. Gerard Moreno also has ten, while Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are on 11 each.
The four goals scored at Mendizorrotza are a much-needed boost to Zinedine Zidane as his team had struggled offensively, scoring just two in the previous three games.
Modric and Kroos bossed the midfield, instigating all of Los Blancos’ important attacks and ensuring their dominance of the match.
Next up for Real Madrid is the visit of Levante on Saturday.
