Four goals and all in the second half, the assault on the first Liga without Messi starts in the best way
Good the first. The new Real Madrid branded Ancelotti conquers the Alaves field by winning 4-1: the two goals from Benzema (at 48 ‘and 62’) are decisive, to which are added the goals of Nacho (at 56 ‘) and Vinicius (92) ‘). The hosts score only with Joselu, on a penalty, but when the game is already compromised (in the 65th minute). And for Ancelotti, who has won the championship in Italy, England, France and Germany in his career, the assault on the title starts in the best possible way.
Ancelotti lines up his team with 4-3-3 with Bale and Hazard next to Benzema. The first opportunity is for Alaves with Rioja who, however, wastes by kicking centrally. Real broke up after the quarter of an hour and created the first chance at 17 ‘with Hazard who, from the edge, just misses the door. A few minutes later Bale imitates him with a conclusion that is lopsided. The rhythms are not very high, with Real only seeing themselves again in the 32nd minute when Benzema, from the edge, just misses the door. Madrid again in the 37th minute, with Pacheco who, however, is attentive to Bale’s conclusion, again from outside.
Benzema unlocks it
After struggling to create chances inside the opponent’s penalty area during the first half, at the beginning of the second half Real broke through immediately: triggered by Hazard, in the 48th minute, Benzema, from the heart of the area, beats Pacheco coldly. The game starts downhill and Ancelotti’s team doubles already in the 56th minute: on Modric’s corner is Nacho, from two steps, he strikes the opposing goalkeeper. At 58 ‘there would also be an opportunity for the 3-0, but Benzema, on an assist from Vazquez, hits a headache. The Frenchman wasted again in the 62nd minute, before finding his personal double a few seconds later with another shot from the edge of the small area. Alaves is seen only in the 64th minute, when Guidetti, stretched out by Courtois, wins the penalty that Joselu transforms. Real is content to manage the advantage by giving Alaves (before Vinicius’ final 4-1, still on a corner kick) only one chance in the 82nd minute, when Courtois is reactive on Loum’s conclusion. Too little to undermine Ancelotti’s team who, at Real, start winning again. As always done.
