Real Madrid has everything in their own hands in the hunt for the title in La Liga. Aainst Alavés, they took a step closer to a secure title when they easily won 2-0 after Karim Benzema opened the goal scoring after eleven minutes on a penalty. Marco Asensio put the match to sleep in the 50th minute.
It was a somewhat fast encounter, however, Real Madrid slowed down the pace and played attacking football for most of the time. The most dramatic thing in the match was the injury to the referee in the first half. After a few minutes of care on the pitch, he was finally forced to leave and the fourth official took his place.
The victory for Real Madrid means that they have four points advantage on Barcelona in second place with three rounds left. This means that Real, who have 23 victories in 35 rounds, now only need two victories to secure the title.
Zidane hopes to keep his team focused with the title now looking more likely than ever. Real Madrid have Granada away, Villareal home and Leganes away as their next three fixtures. Wins against Granada and Villareal could see Real Madrid lift the La Liga for the 34th time on the 16th of July. Their first league title since 2016-17 season.
