Alaba was the star man in Real Madrid's league opener against Almería. The Austrian ace struck the team's second goal with a stunning left-footed free-kick: "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".

“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".

Personal form “I feel in good shape and I always try and make sure I'm in the best form I possibly can be".
