As Karim Benzema set them on the way to a 2-0 victory over Deportivo Alaves, Real Madrid moved a big step closer to a 34th LaLiga title

Barcelona’s gap to a second-place is down to four points and it will take a mighty collapse from this spot for the teams to switch places.

After Benzema ‘s early penalty, Marco Asensio grabbed Madrid’s second goal and Zinedine Zidane’s side could have stretched their lead as a series of chances came in their way.

But lowly Alaves has made a significant contribution to an exciting game, enough to suggest that they will stay in the top flight under their new coach Juan Muniz.
