Dani Ceballos was the hero for Real Madrid in his debut on Saturday, scoring twice in the narrow 2-1 win over Deportivo Alaves at Estadio Mendizorrotza.

Also, Atletico Madrid recorded an impressive 2-0 win over Sevilla, thanks to second-half strikes by Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann.

If Barcelona defeat Girona later on Saturday the Catalan club will re-establish a seven-point lead over their fierce rivals.

"Today we needed the three points".

The 21-year-old was reported to have been frustrated to remain an unused replacement as Real crashed 1-0 to his former club Betis on Wednesday night.

Zidane added that he was happy to be coming up against his eldest son Enzo, who joined Alaves from Real's reserves over the summer.

Alaves captain Manu Garcia met Munir El Haddadi's cross flush to power a header into the top corner.

Real Madrid regained the lead less than three minutes later, however, when Ceballos found the back of the net with a cool finish after Alaves goalkeeper Pacheco had failed to hold onto a Dani Carvajal cross inside his own box.

And Malaga won their first point of the season following a pulsating 3-3 draw against Athletic Bilbao.

"We have the chance to be able to change that quickly and we'll do it".

Madrid reportedly paid Betis 16.5 million euros ($19.7 million) for the up-and-coming midfielder.

Griezmann then made the game safe 20 minutes from time as the French global won a tackle inside the Sevilla box before lifting himself off the floor to receive Luis's pass and drill through Rico's legs.

"If you think the league is over, congratulations, but the season is very long and we'll be there".
