Real Madrid easily dispatched Alaves 5-0 in a less significant match, with the focus now firmly on the upcoming Champions League final. Despite their seemingly perfect season, some issues are troubling the players.

Real Madrid secured the La Liga title some time ago, allowing them to play their last league match against Alaves without any pressure. With two weeks until the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, coach Carlo Ancelotti fielded his strongest lineup to keep his top players in peak condition for the season's most crucial match.   

Despite the team’s idyllic atmosphere and successful season, discontent has brewed in the dressing room. The primary issue is the deteriorating condition of the pitch at Santiago Bernabeu, which has affected the players' performance.   

Toni Kroos, representing the first team players, brought these concerns to club president Florentino Perez. Kroos's words were supported by Dani Carvajal, with the players complaining about irregular ball bounces that disrupt the flow of the game.   

It appears that mistakes were made during the refurbishment of the pitch at the iconic Madrid stadium. Although it hasn’t significantly hindered the team so far, Perez is taking no chances and has promised immediate action to ensure the pitch meets the high standards expected by Real Madrid's stars.
