Alaves 1-2 Real Madrid: Los Blancos move atop La Liga with narrow win [Tweets]

Sergio Ramos nearly went from hero to zero before Dani Carvajal struck an open goal to ensure a 2-1 win for Real Madrid over Alaves at the Mendizorrotza.

After a dull first half, the game sprang into life when Sergio Ramos headed Real Madrid into the lead in the 52nd, nodding the ball in from a Toni Kroos cross. 13 minutes later, Ramos fouled Joselu to concede a penalty, which was converted by Lucas Perez to bring the game back to level terms.

Shortly after, though, Real Madrid had their lead back, as Dani Carvajal scored from point-blank range to make it 2-1. The visitors held on to their slender advantage and reached the summit of La Liga. And, Ramos was the hotly-discussed topic on social media after an all-action outing.

Toni Kroos was in a league of his own once again, standing out as the best midfielder in the game. And, Real Madrid fans were full of praise for the Germany playmaker.

But, the game belonged to Eder Militao, who was immensely impressive in a rare start in defence.
