But on the way, they are going to face Atletico Madrid at their away venue in their 14th round and the match will be tough for them. Atletico Madrid is one of the few strong opponents in La Liga and always fight to the last. Under their coach Diego Simeone, they used to play quite defensively and also after losing Antoine Griezmann, they have brought Joao Felix in the last summer transfer window.

However, at the opponent’s venue, earlier today Real Madrid won by a 2 – 1 goal.

In the 10th minute, through the Wales forward’s head, Real could go ahead but the ball was stopped by the post. Alaves kept their defence solid and tried to make the counter-attack and so, Real could not create better chances in the first half. 


In the 7th minute of the 2nd half, Real found the net. Kroos made an amazing free-kick and the skipper Ramos heads it to the net. In the 65th minute, through a successful spot-kick, Perez scored the goal for Alaves. Ramos fouled the striker Joselu and the referee gave the penalty. Just four minutes later, the match-winning goal was scored by Carvajal. Luka Modric made the important cross that went in front of the goal but Isco’s head was stopped by the post. The loose ball was touched to the net easily by the Spanish defender.
