CAIRO – 24 September 2017: Real Madrid succeeded to secure a valuable away three points by beating Alaves 2-1 in the 6th round of the Spanish League (La Liga).
Dani Ceballos, Real Madrid midfielder, ended up being the great protagonist, as he scored his team`s two goals.
Ceballos, former Real Betis player, took the lead in the 7th minute as Pacheco, Alaves goalkeeper, failed to deal with a cross after hitting a teammate, which allowed Ceballos to score the first goal.
Manu Garcia, Alaves midfielder, leveled the score as he headed Alaves striker Munir El Hadadi`s beautiful cross in the net to make it 1-1.
Three minutes later, Ceballos doubled the score for him and his team by following a blocked shot from Pacheco.
The second half was strange, as a lot of chances from both teams didn`t find their way to the net. Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo became the main player of the second half because of the accumulation of opportunities that he missed. He crashed with the post and with Pachecó again and again, ending up in despair. Up to two shots crashed into the wood. He could not believe it.
Real Madrid was lucky as Alaves players crashed the post and the wood two times.
Real Madrid is now ranked 4th with 11 points, waiting for Barcelona to stumble in the next matches.
