Goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio saw Real Madrid take another huge step towards the title as Los Blancos beat Alaves 2-0 on Friday night to move four points clear of Barcelona with three rounds remaining in LaLiga.
Alaves are now just three points above the drop zone with three fixtures left and still very much in danger.
With three games left for Real, they need at least five points from two matches to be confirmed champions.
Barcelona will be hoping to close the gap when they travel to play Real Valladolid on Saturday night.
Real Madrid’s next three fixtures are against Granada, Villareal, and Leganes.
Zinedine Zidane’s men also hold a superior head-to-head advantage over Barca.
