Real Madrid have had a rocky start to their La Liga campaign, but Dani Ceballos' brace got them back to winning ways.

Dani Ceballos had to wait for his first competitive Real Madrid start after joining the club last summer, but he immediately underlined his potential as a future star with a match-winning double in Saturday afternoon's 2-1 La Liga win at Alaves.

Just 10 minutes into his full debut, Ceballos received a cross from fellow youngster Marco Asensio, bounced off an Alaves defender and guided an excellent, low, 15-yard shot into the net.

Real Madrid had Dani Ceballos to thank for eking out a 2-1 victory against a fired-up Alaves in Mendizorrotza, the midfielder finding the accuracy lacking in his teammates to score twice in a 2-1 victory.

Luckless Madrid aren't in crisis, but Zidane must address slow start

The FC crew dive into Madrid's shock 1-0 loss to Real Betis, and what Zidane can do to turn the ship around quickly.
Real's poor recent run of form continued, as Cristiano Ronaldo's return to league action couldn't prevent a narrow loss.
Real's poor recent run of form continued, as Cristiano Ronaldo's return to league action couldn't prevent a narrow loss.

There was a curious sense of inevitability as Real Betis' Tony Sanabria steered a last-gasp diving header beyond Keylor Navas.

The Paraguayan's 94th-minute finish becomes the latest winning goal ever scored by a visiting team at the Bernabeu, pipping Lionel Messi's dramatic winner in El Clasico last season by two minutes. The goal did not come from an isolated attacking foray, but a precision-engineered 20-pass move in which 10 players touched the ball in a 71-second spell of uninterrupted possession.
