Real Madrid have to fight hard before being able to pick a 2-1 victory from hosts Alaves in the sixth week of La Liga competition at Estadio Mendizorrotza on Saturday (23/09/2017) afternoon local time.

The Portugal star also cut a frustrated figure in the 1-0 defeat to Betis but Zidane insists there is little cause for panic.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit the goal-frame twice in the second half as the Madrid forward seeks his first goal in the league after he was suspended for the first four rounds for pushing a referee.

They may be seven points off the pace, but coach Zinedine Zidane has urged his troops to remain calm, as Real Madrid look to mount a comeback following a series of poor performances at home this season.

Ronaldo came close to sending Real Madrid 3-1 ahead early in the second period after collecting a brilliant pass from Carvajal, but the attacker sent his low effort just wide of the post. Just three minutes after the equaliser, Ceballos struck again, with Pacheco failing to clear the initial chance.

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.

A determined Ronaldo hit the upright again with a wonderful curling strike, before a rare attack at the other end saw Alaves likewise hit the woodwork as Alfonso Pedraza's shot deflected beyond Navas and against the crossbar.

Pacheco made two super saves to deny Vazquez and Ronaldo in the final 10 minutes, but 2-1 was how it finished as Real Madrid returned to winning ways against an Alaves side that have now lost all six of their league matches this season.

The goalkeeper was again called into action to tip over Nacho Fernandez's aerial effort, before the tempo died down, with Madrid playing keep-ball and giving Alaves the run-around.
