Real Madrid keep pace with rivals Atletico Madrid and move to within four points of Diego Simeone's side thanks to tonight's victory. Atletico have two games in hand, but Zidane cannot ask any more of his team in the league at present. At the other end of the table, Alaves will be worried as they sit just one point above the drop zone, with two of the bottom three having played fewer matches.
The referee brings this crazy game to an end and Madrid extend their unbeaten run in the league to nine matches thanks to a clinical display in front of goal. Casemiro's header got them off to a great start, before Benzema doubled their advantage. Hazard got in on the act before half-time, while Joselu's header gave Alaves some hope. Benzema's second of the evening soon put Madrid back in control, and they cruised to victory on their travels.
