Cristiano, Keylor back in squad, no Asensio — Real Madrid-Alavés

Cristiano, Keylor back in squad, no Asensio — Real Madrid-Alavés”

Benzema had snapped a run of almost three months without a league goal by scoring against Real Betis last weekend and although he squandered a couple of chances he was one of Real's best performers in what was a fifth consecutive win in all competitions for Zidane's side.

Gareth Bale is one of the many excellent players who won't be in the World Cup, as Wales failed to qualify for the world's biggest footballing stage.

The Portugal captain allowed under-fire team-mate Karim Benzema take over penalty duties to net Los Blancos' fourth goal in the 4-0 win.

Barcelona sit 10 points clear of nearest challengers Atletico Madrid, who face Sevilla on Sunday.

The conflict has already been used to demonstrate the prowess of Russian cruise missiles and combat helicopters. It is not clear if the Jets would be used for actual combat operations.

Messi set up Suarez's first goal to cancel out the early opener by Girona's Cristian "Portu" Portuguese.

The French striker helped to double the lead less than 30 seconds into the second half after he stole possession from Alexis Ruano, catching Alaves defending a four-on-two attack.

Do you think Gareth Bale can retain his place in the Real Madrid setup?

But coach Zinedine Zidane has stuck by Benzema and Bale in an unpredictable season. "I'm delighted for Karim because he's a phenomenal player", added Real winger Lucas Vazquez.

Rick Gates enters guilty plea
Gates's plea is expected to come with an agreement to cooperate with Mueller's investigation, but what form that takes is unclear. If found guilty of bank fraud, the defendants could each face up to 30 years in prison and a fine of as much as $1 million.

Alaves are one of the three La Liga teams Cristiano Ronaldo has faced at the Santiago Bernabeu and failed to score a single goal against, along with Leganes and Tenerife.

But the Portugal handed the ball to Benzema when Bale was fouled in the area in the closing seconds. He ran onto Lucas Vazquez's pass to slot home his 13th goal in his last seven games in all competitions, including the vital two in last week's Champions League first-leg win over PSG.

When asked if this meant the trio of Ronaldo-Bale-Benzema was back to playing at its best, Zidane replied that it had never been missing.

"At times like this everyone needs the support of the group and Cristiano has shown everyone what we are like in the dressing room".

Congressional districts, candidates in flux
The court redrew Pennsylvania's district map to make it a more even playing field for the two major political parties. That election isn't affected by the new boundaries, which go into effect in the May primaries.

Alaves have been in good form coming into the game, but they are facing Real Madrid at a time when they are finally hitting their strides, following some impressive results over the past few weeks.
