It’s impressive to know that Alexander Sørloth scored in all three victories, among which were the opening goals at home and away, against Bilbao and Vallecano respectively.

If the 27-year-old striker had been more crucial during the Real Madrid clash at Bernabeu, he could have been giving his club a perfect month of January.

La Real has been in top form this season of La Liga so far, vaguely thanks to Sørloth. The clubs is standing firmly at top three with a safe 5-point gap against 4th place Atletico Madrid.
