How to Watch Alaves vs. Real Madrid

Posted September 24, 2017

Los Merengues were dealt a huge blow early on, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Real Betis in a performance that encapsulated their early season struggles at home, having been forced to settle for back-to-back draws against Valencia and Levante.

Madrid's stuttering start to their domestic title defence continued with a 1-0 reverse against Real Betis at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, but Zinedine Zidane's side have so far performed better away from home this term and that again proved to be the case in the Basque Country.

"The game is Real Madrid against Alaves".

The home side brought on Alfonso Pedraza for the final 25 minutes, and the former Leeds United winger nearly made an instant impact, only for his volley from the edge of the box to deflect onto Keylor's crossbar via Raphael Varane.

Indeed, Alaves deservedly levelled the scores in the 40th minute when Manu Garcia headed a wonderful Munir cross into the top corner as the Basque club registered their first league goal of the 2017-18 campaign.

But Madrid responded three minutes later as Ronaldo broke down the right wing, took a shot which Alaves goalkeeper Pacheco fumbled, leaving Ceballos to fire a curling effort towards goal which flies into the bottom corner for his second of the night. However, three minutes later, Ceballos again bring Madrid winning 2-1.

Alaves, who came into the goal without a point or a goal this season, equalised through Manu Garcia's header. Marco Asensio played in Ceballos, who cleverly cut the ball back before finishing the chance for the lead.

The goalkeeper was again called into action to tip over Nacho Fernandez's aerial effort, before the tempo died down, with Madrid playing keep-ball and giving Alaves the run-around.
