Real Madrid are now three games without a win in LaLiga after a 2-1 defeat against Alaves, following goals from Perez and Joselu. It took just four minutes for Alaves to double their lead after the restart, with Joselu taking advantage of a huge mistake by Courtois.
Madrid pushed hard to try and get back into the game, but their goal didn’t come until the 85th minute through Casemiro. Isco almost made it 2-2 with the final kick of the game, but his effort hit the crossbar. Alaves move up to ninth with the victory, now only four points behind Madrid, who remain fourth. Next up for Alaves is a game against the league leaders Real Sociedad.
Meanwhile, Madrid turn their attentions to the Champions League on Tuesday, as they travel to Shaktar Donetsk and their next LaLiga game is against Sevilla.
