Real Madrid added their second win this week by beating Saturday 4-0 at Eibar (15th), three days after having won 6-0 against the Turkish Galatasaray in the Champions League, which remains at the top of the Spanish league.
Two penalties in just eight minutes, scored by Sergio Ramos (20) and Karim Benzema (28), helped an easy Real Madrid victory, which completed the French player himself, who achieved a double by opening the scoreboard (17), and the Uruguayan young Fede Valverde (62), his first goal with the white club.
"I'm glad for Valverde that he was playing very well and he only lacked the goal," said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.
Benzema also achieved his second double in a few days, after having won another against Galatasaray.
"Soccer is the best," Zinedine Zidane launched on Friday about a Karim Benzema who at 31 seems to be in the best moment of his career.
Benzema surpasses with these two goals a Real Madrid legend like Hungarian Ferenc Puskas in the number of goals scored in the Spanish league (157 versus 156).
The team of Zinedine Zidane, who touched the perfection against the Basque team, is placed at the top of the table with 25 points, in a thirteenth day in which Barcelona also plays this Saturday, at home against Celta Vigo, and that could reach the white team at the tip.
Real Madrid also added its fourth consecutive game without conceding a goal.
With 532 minutes without receiving a goal (the last one fit him on October 19, in the 7th minute of a 1-0 game lost in Mallorca), Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois seems to be in a good moment.
"The team has not changed much. After Mallorca we had to work harder and we did it. We are happy because the first part was very good. Maybe it was our best 45 minutes since I came back," Zidane explained.
– Two penalty goals –
Courtois has left behind the whistles he had received against Bruges (2-2) in the Champions League, on October 1, where he had been replaced by Frenchman Alphonse Areola after the break.
The white team closed the game in the first half hour with a 3-0 thanks to the penalties caused by Eden Hazard and Lucas Vazquez, and somewhat from Benzema.
With fifteen goals in four games in ten days (5-0 against Leganes, 0-0 against Betis, 6-0 against Galatasaray and 4-0 in Eibar), Real Madrid lives a sweet moment, before the next game (the November 23, after the international truce) against the surprising Real Sociedad, second provisional, after his draw at home on Friday (1-1) against the Colista Leganes.
For its part, Valencia (7th) added its third consecutive victory, second in the League, against Granada (6th) in free fall after its excellent start to the season.
The victory allows the 'che' team to match points with the Nasrid team, recently promoted to the first division, and who came to be the leader days ago, but now has three straight losses.
Danish midfielder Daniel Wass advanced the team led by Albert Celades by right-handed finishing off a foul on the second post (74).
But we had to wait 90 + 8 minutes to witness the work of art of the game, leaving the boots of Ferran Torres, with a left-handed whip from outside the area that slipped through the squad.
Hours earlier this Saturday, Alaves (14th) took a breath after three dates without winning by knocking Valladolid 3-0 (13th), which does not finish chaining two consecutive wins.
