Incredible game from Alaves who have been very smart tonight. Lucas Perez and Pacheco have been the best from their team and are two points away from Europa League positions.

On the other side, Real Madrid pulled one back at the end of the game but not enough to equalise it. Bad game from los blancos who have problems in defence and in the attack. Real Madrid drops more points and are right now six points away from the leaders.
