Real Madrid-Alavés: Marco Asensio a doubt for Zidane

Forward Gareth Bale is said to be on his way out of Real Madrid according to reports in Spain

Real Madrid: Navas (7), Carvajal (7), Varane (7), Nacho (6), Theo (7), Casemiro (7), Vazquez (8), Kovacic (7), Bale (7), Benzema (8), Ronaldo (8).

Zidane's resurgent side have now won six games in a row in all competitions. Ronaldo and Benzema have both been criticised for not being at their best during a disappointing season, but with both having got on the scoresheet against Alaves, there are signs of an upturn in fortunes for Zinedine Zidane's side.

Ronaldo, who made it 12 goals in his last seven games with his two goals, handed over the chance of his hat-trick from the penalty spot as Benzema swept in his fourth league goal of the season to complete a ideal afternoon for Zidane.

Talk of a crisis at Real Madrid is over for now, but the form of Gareth Bale remains a cause of concern ahead of this weekend's meeting with Alaves in La Liga. A brace from Ronaldo and goals from Bale and Benzema saw the match through quite comfortably. "I'm delighted for Karim because he's a phenomenal player", added Real winger Lucas Vazquez.

Chelsea are reluctant to let the Belgian leave without a fight, but they could allow him to depart should Asensio move in the opposite direction.

"But at the moment we have more of the consistency that we want in our play, our focus".

But the Portugal handed the ball to Benzema when Bale was fouled in the area in the closing seconds. "The four in attack played very well".

Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez, meanwhile, combined to condemn Eibar to back-to-back La Liga defeats as Celta Vigo eased themselves into seventh place in the table with a 2-0 win.

Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 11 league games against Alaves, winning 10 as well as the last eight in a row - scoring an average of 3.5 goals a game. Only Messi and Suarez have outscored them.

Relegation-threatened Las Palmas scraped a point from drawing at Leganes 0-0 to inch its way toward safety. "Leo just makes it look easy, but it's not that easy", said the coach.

"We will go down to the second division playing like this", Jemez said.
