David Alaba scored the winner in Almeria win.
The La Liga champions managed to secure a 2-1 win over Almeria over the weekend.
Defender David Alaba came off the bench and scored a beautiful free-kick to seal the game for Real Madrid.
The veteran defender also praised Almeria who were outstanding in their first La Liga game after seven years.
“I’m thrilled I was able to help the team to the win, which is all that matters and what we came here for. I had a good feeling even before I stepped up and the team gave me the confidence to take it. Ancelotti told me to take the free-kick before he brought me on, he said I would score and then afterwards he said, “I told you so”,” revealed Alaba.
“Almería did a great job, they were full of confidence and they were bold as well. We knew it wouldn’t be easy, playing away from home in front of these fans, but we had a glut of chances following their goal. After the first 45 minutes we told ourselves we just had to relax and continue with the same approach,” he added.
