Real Madrid in the race for Champions League qualifying after going down 1-0 at lowly Alaves in the Liga on Sunday. Manu Garcia’s 52nd minute strike pulled out Alaves out of the relegation zone and left Sevilla sixth on 29 points, three behind fourth-placed Real.
Real coach Zinedine Zidane has come under renewed fire just after Saturday, thanks to Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Villarreal. That loss, Villarreal’s first ever win at the Bernabeu, left the La Liga champions 16 points behind league leaders Barcelona ahead of the Catalans’ trip to Real Sociedad later on Sunday. The defeat for Sevilla extends Vincenzo Montella’s losing start in La Liga, with the Italian guiding them to two straight league breaking down Eduardo Berizzo, following last weekend’s 5-3 home Sevilla derby defeat to Betis.
