Find out the details of the match real Madrid and Deportivo Alavés

Real Madrid beat Deportivo Alavés 2-1 in the round of 15 of la Liga.

The victory came with difficulty after a big game presented by the owners of the land and they were able to cause concern to the Real Madrid fans.

The game started quickly and Real Madrid tried to impose their rhythm and progress in the result early but without danger. Deportivo Aves almost made it to the early spot after Aleix Vidal fell in the penalty area but the referee refused to score a penalty.

In the 10th minute, Gareth Bale tried to reconcile the Real Madrid crowd with a header but hit the post and did not enter the net.

The first half saw a clear dominance from Real Madrid with mostly timid lycées being shot from outside the box by either Isco or Casemiro. The half ended in a goalless draw to start the second half in the same way with Alavés' attempts to rely on rebounds.

Sergio Ramos scored Real Madrid's first goal in the 52nd minute from a cross by Toni Kroos. After the goal, Real Madrid backtracked and the owners took control and more than one player fell into the penalty area demanding a foul, but the referee did not count anything after returning to the video.

The 65th minute finally came and the referee awarded Ramos a penalty and gave him a yellow card to allow Lucas Pérez to equalize.

Real Madrid did not wait long until he came in the 69th minute and scored the second goal after a cross from Casemiro touched by Isco but the keeper saved it to return to Dani Carvajal and make the progress. The game subsided gradually after Real Madrid's lead but in the final minutes, Alavés tried to score the equalizer and get 5 corners in just 3 minutes but failed to convert chances to goals.

Real Madrid managed to return with the three points to reach the 31st point and top the league standings and put pressure on Barcelona before facing Atlético Madrid.
