Real Madrid 4 Alaves 0 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts
Following the fine 4-0 home win over Alaves, at the weekend, we took the opportunity to delve into the record and form books to bring you a few fascinating facts.
• Cristiano Ronaldo, after a slow start to the 2017 / 2018 season, has hit top form, the Portuguese striker has now scored 8 goals in his last 4 appearances.
• Ronaldo`s generosity in letting Karim Benzema take the penalty kick, cost him a personal milestone. Ronaldo currently has 299 goals in the Spanish top-flight, that penalty, if converted, would have made it 300, however, we`re sure that figure will be reached sooner rather than later.
• When Gareth Bale scored, just 28 seconds after the second-half had started the Welshman netted Real`s quickest second-half goal since way back in 2004.
• The win reduces the gap between Real Madrid, in third place, and Barcelona at the top of the table to 14 points.
