Alaves went close to breaking the deadlock on 31 minutes when Alfonso Pedrazaplayed a neat one-two with Manu Garcia before firing just over the bar from 18-yards out.

Ronaldo could have completed his hat-trick after Bale won a last-minute penalty, but the Madrid captain instead allowed Benzema - who like Bale has had to deal with growing criticism - to take the kick and he fired into the corner of the net.

Benzema had snapped a run of almost three months without a league goal by scoring against Real Betis last weekend and was one of Real's best performers in their fifth consecutive win in all competitions. "Playing with a 4-4-2 with Bale on the left worked well because Alexis (Ruano) couldn't join in attack. And that comes with recovering confidence, which is fundamental for a player". "Now what we must do is keep going like this in the next game on Tuesday [at Espanyol]".
