Bale vital for Los Blancos - Zidane

Bale vital for Los Blancos - Zidane”

Real Madrid faced Alaves on Saturday in an encounter that saw Los Blancos win with a resounding scoreline of 4-0. He set up the first two goals - one for Cristiano and another for Bale; the latter, after dispossessing Alexis in the midfield. The hosts won their 5th consecutive game in all competitions - the first time they've achieved that this season - and their 4th consecutive game in La Liga -the second time they've achieved that this season.

The home side were rewarded for their perseverance on the stroke of half-time as Ronaldo sent a powerful strike into the bottom corner after being picked out by Benzema, 1-0.

Real Madrid sit third in La Liga, 14 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema also found themselves on the scoresheet, to further enhance the importance of Real Madrid's current winning run, highlighting that they may well be back to their best. That has led to calls for others like Francisco "Isco" Alarcon and Marco Asensio to take their place.

But coach Zinedine Zidane has stuck by Benzema and Bale in an unpredictable season.

Ronaldo got in his second goal in the 61st when he used one touch of his right boot to fire Lucas Vazquez's pass under Pacheco.

"At times like this everyone needs the support of the group and Cristiano has shown everyone what we are like in the dressing room". Only Barcelona's Lionel Messi with 20 and Luis Suarez with 16 have matched or outscored the Celta pair.

Prior to the penalty goal, Benzema had only scored three goals, and Ronaldo's act does not surprise Navas.

"It's been a good day for him to play on the left".

Benzema was also the catalyst for Real's second goal which came under a minute into the second half, with the Frenchman winning the ball back in midfield and tearing toward goal, slipping it into Bale's path for the Wales worldwide to slot it inside the near post.

Relegation-threatened Las Palmas scraped a point from drawing with Leganes 0-0 to inch its way toward safety.
