Real Madrid increased the pressure on Barcelona in LaLiga’s title race with a battling victory over Copa del Rey finalists Alaves.
Karim Benzema, Isco and Nacho scored as an understrength Real Madrid added late gloss in a 3-0 win over Alaves at Santiago Bernabeu to pile the pressure on Barcelona in LaLiga’s title race.
In-form Benzema linked up with Dani Carvajal to score his fourth goal in as many league games just after the half-hour mark, making it 50 matches in a row in which Madrid have netted.
Alaves wasted numerous good chances for an equaliser in the second half and it looked like the Madrid striker’s goal would ultimately prove to be the winner.
