Dani Ceballos fired a La Liga debut double to ease pressure on boss Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid edged out Alaves 2-1.
Former Real Betis midfielder Ceballos capped his league debut for Real with a smart first-half brace that set Zidane's men back to winning ways.
The 21-year-old was reported to have been frustrated to remain an unused replacement as Real lost 1-0 to his former club Betis on Wednesday night.
But Ceballos set any moans aside to put Real back on track against Alaves, despite Manu...
Alaves have appointed Gianni De Biasi as their new head coach.
The 61-year-old Italian replaces Luis Zubeldia, who was sacked following last weekend's defeat to Villarreal, and takes over an Alaves side who have yet to pick up a point or score a goal from five La Liga matches this season.
The experienced De Biasi counts the likes of Torino, Udinese, Levante and Brescia among his former clubs as a coach, while he was in charge of Albania for six years before stepping down this summer.
A club statement...
Alaves coach Luis Zubeldia has become the first manager to be sacked this season in La Liga.
The former Argentina player was let go by Alaves on Sunday after a 3-0 home loss to Villarreal, their fourth straight defeat that left them in last place with no goals scored.
Alaves said that Javier Cabello would be interim manager.
Zubeldia, 36, was hired in June to replace Mauricio Pellegrino, who left the club after guiding them to the final of the Copa del Rey last season, where they lost to Barcelona.
