Alaves vs Real Madrid: Ceballos double secures victory for La Liga champions

Real Madrid News Mariano Diaz

Dani Ceballos fired a La Liga debut double to ease pressure on boss Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid edged out Alaves 2-1.

As expected, it was the visitors that dominated the ball in the early stages, but Alaves were a threat in the final third, with Munir's movement in the final third causing Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane problems at the heart of the Real Madrid defence. In contrast, two chances Alaves through Alfonzo Pedraza also twice about Madrid's goalkeeper who escorted Keylor Navas.

"I don't know if it'll be unusual to be up against him but I'm happy for him because he's doing a good job".

But, three minutes later, Ceballos scored his and Real's second with a low drive from 16 yards.

It was the Dani Ceballos show at the Mendizorrotza, as he opened the scoring with a well-taken strike, only for Manu Garcia to deservedly draw Alaves level in the 40th minute.
