Real Madrid vice-captain Marcelo signs two-year contract extension with club

GETTY Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will face APOEL

Cristiano Ronaldo

Marcelo is still expected to play the Champions League opener against APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday night (13 September) as the ban doesn't apply to European games.

Real had struggled for goals in their last two Liga encounters, surprise home draws with Valencia and Levante, and Ronaldo's return came at a flawless time for Zinedine Zidane's side, who were missing Karim Benzema and in-form forward Marco Asensio through injury.

Ronaldo, who is now serving a domestic ban, opened scoring in the 12th minute.

With Real stumbling to two draws in their opening three LaLiga fixtures in the absence of the suspended Ronaldo, they already sit four points adrift of league leaders and rivals Barcelona and can ill-afford another slip up.

Bale played 82 minutes against the Cyprians and assisted Cristiano Ronaldo's first goal of the game.

While Real Madrid's Marco Asensio's latest fitness troubles might not be as odd as those, it's still a runaway leader for the coveted "Most Bizarre Injury of the Season" award.

With Manchester United winning the Europa League last season, England is now the second country to put five teams in the Champions League group stage, joining Spain in the 2015-16 season.

"(Cristiano) is the best in the world, he is always there, always scoring goals", Zidane said after the match.

Casemiro sprung up to Bale's defence as the Brazilian said, "You can see that Bale is working, he wants to score goals and he's fighting to help the club".

"In Liga we have not been able to win our last two games", the Costa Rica global said.

Ceballos, who made his Champions League debut in the one-sided encounter, told his club's official website: 'With Cristiano on the field we're always more comfortable and he gives us the confidence that turns in to goals.
