    Alex Sandro has been called up to the Brazil squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers in place of the injured Marcelo.

"Alex Sandro was called up on Friday for the Brazilian national team's next two matches," the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said in a statement. "Real Madrid were very thoughtful and sent over medical reports of tests carried out on Marcelo. After analysing them, the need for a longer recovery period was clear, which prevents his participation in the next matches." Brazil, who have already qualified for next year's finals in Russia, face Bolivia in La Paz on October 5 before hosting Chile five days later in Sao Paulo.

    Ronaldo relaxed despite goalscoring woes, says Zidane

    Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has no concerns over Cristiano Ronaldo's form despite the forward failing to score for a second straight match on Saturday. The champions bounced back from their shock midweek loss to Real Betis by seeing off Deportivo Alaves 2-1, courtesy of Dani Ceballos' double. Real 7/2 to win Champions League Madrid's victory would have been more comfortable had Ronaldo not hit the post twice in his second La Liga outing of the season, with the 32-year-old having now mustered 18 shots without finding the net in the top flight in 2017-18. The Portugal star also cut a frustrated figure in the 1-0 defeat to Betis but Zidane insists there is little cause for panic. "When you do not score, you are frustrated. But Ronaldo is calm," he said at his post-match news conference. "He wants to score and he had the chances to do so. In the end, we always know he will make a difference eventually." Alaves looked set to extend Madrid's patchy start to the season when captain Manu Garcia equalised before the break, but Ceballos quickly responded with his second to help secure just a third win in six league matches. Zidane hailed Ceballos' attitude and promised further first-team chances for the 21-year-old midfielder. "I am very happy for the player, as he is ready to play and did very well today getting both goals," he said. "I am happy for him because he is a boy who wants to learn and he will have more opportunities. "More than just the goals, he has played a great game."

    18 shots, zero goals - why Cristiano Ronaldo is La Liga's most frustrated player

    Cristiano Ronaldo is hardly renowned for passing up the chance to shoot whenever even half an opportunity arises. His single-minded focus on scoring goals above all else has proved record-breakingly effective over a staggering career - at least until this season, that is. Real Madrid 7/2 to win Champions League In his second LaLiga match back from a five-game suspension, Ronaldo again failed to notch as Real Madrid won 2-1 at Deportivo Alaves courtesy of Dani Ceballos' double. The four-time Ballon d'Or winner was unsuccessful with each of his six shots, continuing his frustration from midweek when an incredible 12 attempts - 10 more than any of his team-mates - were not enough to break down a stubborn Real Betis. Back-to-back blanks means the Portugal star has now unleashed 18 attempts in just two LaLiga games, the most of any player yet to score. Ronaldo's frustration against Alaves was heightened by the intervention of the woodwork, which twice denied him a goal. It was just the second time the superstar forward has suffered that fate for Madrid, with the previous two incidents coming away to Deportivo La Coruna in 2016 and at Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey earlier this year.

    Deportivo Alaves 1 Real Madrid 2: Ceballos off the mark as champions bounce back

    Dani Ceballos scored his first Real Madrid goals on his full debut as the LaLiga champions responded to their shock midweek defeat with a much-needed 2-1 win at Deportivo Alaves. Madrid's stuttering start to their domestic title defence continued with a 1-0 reverse against Real Betis at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, but Zinedine Zidane's side have so far performed better away from home this term and that again proved to be the case in the Basque Country. Cristiano Ronaldo started his second game of the week – despite a looming Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund – but Madrid's hero was Ceballos, who netted the opener and then provided a quick response to Manu Garcia's 40th-minute equaliser. That was Alaves' first goal of the campaign and the second could well have arrived here as they twice hit the woodwork in the second half, contributing to a nervy finish for Zidane's men. Ronaldo and his team-mates were similarly profligate at the other end – also twice striking the post – but their failings ultimately mattered little as Madrid moved back to within four points of rivals and league leaders Barcelona, who play at Girona later on Saturday.
