Real Madrid romped to a 3-0 win over Alaves on Monday (February 4) at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in this capital on tallies by Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and Mariano, securing for the squad its fifth consecutive victory.

Benzema now has six goals in his last four outings for Real Madrid, while Vinicius managed to score his second so far for the squad and played an outstanding game where he once again proved his worth in more ways than one.

Meanwhile, Mariano notched his top-flight goal after taking advantage of a great centering pass by Odriozola.

The 18-year-old Brazilian was a key factor in Benzema’s goal in the 30th minute to get the team on the board, knocking a thread the needle type of pass down the line to Sergio Reguilon, who then fired a crossing shot over to Benzema, who popped it into the net.
