Thankfully for the club legend, who is hugely under the spotlight at current, Real Madrid have clicked into gear against Alaves this evening.

They now have a second, with Karim Benzema composing himself on the edge of the penalty area before firing home an emphatic finish to double his side’s advantage.
It looks as though it’s going to be a good night for Real Madrid!
