Real Madrid edge close to title following win against LaLiga strugglers Deportivo Alaves

​Real Madrid are two wins away from securing the 2019/20 season LaLiga title following their hard-fought victory against Deportivo Alaves.

Karim Benzema's penalty opened the scoreline after Ximo Navarro's challenge on defender Ferland Mendy inside the danger area.

Benzema was on par with Marco Asensio who scored the second goal of the night after VAR overruled what was deemed an incorrect offside decision.

Barcelona who are now behind the log leaders by four points will see their rivals edge even closer to the title if they fail to beat Real Valladolid on Saturday, July 11.

Real on the other end will need to secure another three-pointer on Monday against ninth-place Granada who come off a narrow 3-2 win against Real Sociedad

However, Real Madrid could potentially clinch two wins, a win or two draws respectively in their three remaining fixtures, and they will be onto their second title in eight years - their most recent La Liga trophy was in the 2016/17 season.

Second-placed Barcelona make the trip to Real Valladolid as they look to secure a win away from home, in hopes of edging closer to Real Madrid.
