Vinícius Júnior at the double as Real Madrid put five past hapless Alavés

Vinícius Júnior scored twice as the newly-crowned La Liga champions Real Madrid thrashed visitors Alavés 5-0 on Tuesday after the hosts had paraded the trophy in front of the home fans before the game.

Jude Bellingham and Vinícius scored a goal each inside 30 minutes before Federico Valverde put Real 3-0 up at the break, unleashing an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net in first-half stoppage time.

Vinícius added one more in the 70th minute from a precise cross by Bellingham that the Brazilian fired into the far top corner, and substitute Arda Guler made it 5-0 with a low finish.

Real travel to Villarreal on Sunday before hosting Real Betis on 25 May ahead of their Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on 1 June.
