La Liga giants, Real Madrid moved top of the La Liga table after their away win over Deportivo Alaves on Saturday, ABC News can report.

Gareth Bale made his first Real Madrid start since 5 October as Zinedine Zidane’s side moved top of La Liga with victory at Alaves.

Captain Sergio Ramos opened the scoring 10 minutes into the second half. Lucas Perez equalized from the penalty spot, but Dani Carvajal bundled home from close range to earn Real the win.

Bale, making his first start since suffering a calf injury at the beginning of October, had been heavily criticized by sections of the Spanish press after posing with a ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order’ flag while on international duty earlier this month.

But the winger started brightly and went closest to breaking the deadlock before half-time, heading Isco’s cross on to the post through a heavy deflection off Ximo Navarro.

Ramos eventually nodded the visitors into the lead from Toni Kroos’ delivery, but the Real skipper conceded a penalty when he collided with Joselu inside the area.

Former Arsenal striker Perez sent Alphonse Areola the wrong way from the spot, but Carvajal restored Madrid’s lead four minutes later after Isco’s header had rebounded off the post.

However, this lead will be short-lived if their rival, Barcelona wins their match on Sunday.
