LaLiga champions Madrid smash Alaves

Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior inspired runaway Spanish champions Real Madrid to a 5-0 rout of Alaves on Tuesday (May 14). Carlo Ancelotti's side continued warming up for the Champions League final with a comprehensive demolition of their Basque visitors at the Santiago Bernabeu. Bellingham scored the opener and played a part in Madrid's next three goals, two scored by Vinicius, finding his best form at the business end of the season.

Jude Bellingham scored his 19th LaLiga goal as champions Real Madrid thrashed Alaves at the Santiago Bernabeu. The England international opened the scoring in Madrid's first game since securing the title when he guided Toni Kroos' 10th-minute cross over Jesus Owono.

Bellingham's goal left him one adrift of Girona striker Artem Dovbyk in the race for the golden boot with two league matches remaining.

Vinicius Jr doubled Real's lead in the 27th minute with a close-range finish after a fine ball by Eduardo Camavinga. Federico Valverde made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time with a beautiful strike into the top corner, before the impressive Vinicius netted his second with a lovely effort of his own.

Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois started ahead of Andriy Lunin and produced a number of great saves, leaving Real boss Carlo Ancelotti with a tough decision to make on who will be in goal against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final.

Turkish teenager Arda Guler rounded off the scoring in the 81st minute with a composed finish into the bottom corner.

Madrid are now just one game away from equalling their club record of 31 LaLiga games unbeaten, set during the 1989-89 season.

Elsewhere high-flying Girona, third, fell to a 1-0 home defeat against Villarreal; FC Barcelona can move four points clear if they win at Almeria on Thursday.

Mallorca, 15th, rescued a 1-1 draw at Osasuna to add one more point in their battle for survival. The Copa del Rey runners-up are seven points clear of the relegation zone.
