Updates from La Liga trip to Alaves for Cristiano Ronaldo and co

Real Madrid marcelo marcelo injured Real Betis karim benzema

Instead, disappointing home draws against Valencia and Levante were compounded as Real failed to score for the first time in 74 games when Real Betis became the first side other than Barca or Atletico Madrid to win at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga for six-and-a-half years on Wednesday.

Real Madrid already trail rivals Barcelona by seven points after just five games and can not afford any more slip ups.

Father and son will be reunited, albeit on opposite sides of the ball, when Madrid visits the Basque Country club.

Real Madrid are expected to be without key defender Marcelo for up to a month due to a hamstring tear.

Sergio Ramos threatened with a header that Alaves goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco saved, and Lucas Vazquez also got involved, somehow failing to double the lead from close range.


But Madrid responded three minutes later as Ronaldo broke down the right wing, took a shot which Alaves goalkeeper Pacheco fumbled, leaving Ceballos to fire a curling effort towards goal which flies into the bottom corner for his second of the night.

But Ceballos soon eased the pressure on the visitors with the opener, wriggling out of a challenge with Ibai Gomez in the area to slide a finish inside the left-hand post.

The first of Ceballos' goals came in the 10th minute after a brilliant cut back on the edge of the box from Marco Asensio.

The winless Basques had plenty of late chances at an equaliser after Manu Garcia pulled them level in the 40th minute, but Los Blancos clung to their advantage. However, three minutes later, Ceballos again bring Madrid winning 2-1.

But the Alaves substitute's stab under Navas bounced away off the frame of the goal again and Madrid escaped with the points.
