La Liga Roundup: Karim Benzema grabs a brace as Real Madrid eases past Alaves

Karim Benzema scored two beautiful goals in Real Madrid 4-1 thrashing of Deportivo Alaves as the Los Blancos recovered from their shock Spanish Cup exit and returned to winning ways.

Real, who were stunned by third-division Alcoyano in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, took the lead through a header by midfielder Casemiro.

Benzema added Madrid’s second of the game, his first of the night before Eden Hazard stroked in a third for the visitors.

A better performance from Alaves in the second half resulted in a goal scored by Joselu but Benzema made it 4-1 with a curled finish with about 20 minutes from time.

The victory ensured that Real Madrid moved to within four points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid, who have two games in hand.
