Real Madrid 1-2 Alaves:
Goals from Joselu and Lucas Perez earn Alaves their win. It’s the first time Alaves have earned an away win against the giants Real Madrid since May 2000.
Real Madrid lost their third league game of the season and Eden Hazard to another injury.
Thibaut Courtois gifted the visitors their second goal by playing the ball straight out to former Newcastle striker Joselu who scored.
The first goal was also a present from the Champions – Nacho handballed in the area and former Arsenal and West Ham forward Lucas Perez rifled the penalty past Courtois.
Casemiro pulled back a goal for Madrid in the 86th minute from close range while Isco almost found an equaliser in the sixth minute of added time but his shot bounced off the crossbar.
Benzema, Ramos and Fede Valverde, all injured and watching from the stands, held their heads in their hands. If those three are now to be joined by Hazard again Zidane will have to keep shuffling his increasingly thinning pack. ‘I hope it’s just a knock and not muscular,’ Zinedine Zidane said after the game.
