Sports Desk- Real Madrid beating Alavés 2-0 and restoring a four-point lead over Barcelona in the La Liaga on Friday. Karim Benzema helped one goal. Benzema scored a penalty kick in the 11th minute and assisted Marco Asensio in the 50th to ensure an eighth straight victory since La Liga resumed play after stopping for three months due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Real Madrid will finish the season with matches against Granada, Villarreal, and Leganés.
Barcelona has games against Valladolid, Osasuna, and Alavés before the competition concludes on July 19. Madrid holds the tiebreaker on head-to-head goals if they finish level on points.
Still, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane refused to say the league was Madrid’s to lose. “Anything can happen until this is over,” Zidane said. “It is a good result and how we have three to go.”
