Alaves vs Real Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Deportivo Alaves’ poor start to the season extended even after a managerial change, as the team lost 1-0 against Deportivo La Coruna. Luisinho scored the crucial breakthrough just before half-time to provide a psychological blow to Alaves, who never recovered. Real Madrid were left stunned by Real Betis, as they secured a surprise 1-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu. Madrid created a host of opportunities and had eight shots on target along with a valid penalty appeal. Yet, Antonio Sanabria came up with a goal deep into injury time to inflict Madrid’s first defeat of the season. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Madrid may have managed just one win in the last four league matches, but they have an imperious record against Alaves that extends to the opposition’s previous spells in the La Liga. Madrid have won all of the recent six games against this club. Crucially, they have kept three clean sheets in the last four. Alaves are yet to score in the league this season. I see good value in going with Real Madrid to keep a clean sheet, despite Madrid being without one since the opening game. Cristiano Ronaldo came up with a hat-trick in the last trip to the Mendizorrotza. The Portuguese superstar did not have a whole host of opportunities in the game against Real Betis, but his touch is expected to improve with a regular run of matches. I would back Ronaldo to score the first goal.

Alaves Preview

The managerial change did not make a dramatic change at Deportivo Alaves, as the club once again looked extremely poor in the midweek La Liga match. The club are just one place above the bottom and have failed to score in all the five league games. Last season, the club were a surprise package after they managed to finish in the top 10. They also managed to reach the finals of the Copa del Rey. The La Liga 2017-18 season was always expected to be tough due to the second season syndrome, but few would have expected such a magnitude of struggle at the club.

Alaves Team News

Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee), Bojan Krkic (muscle), and Victor Laguardia (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for Deportivo Alaves.

Real Madrid Preview

The reigning European and La Liga champions have made a horrendous start to the 2017-18 season, as Real Madrid fell to a 1-0 loss against Real Betis at home. Prior to the defeat, Madrid had suffered just one loss at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 26 games and that solitary defeat was against Barcelona. There have already been suggestions about Madrid conceding defeat in the La Liga title race – just five games into the season. The club have fallen an incredible seven points behind Barcelona even at this early stage. The very low margin of error in the Spanish league is the reason for Barcelona’s advantage looking mighty even after just five games.

Real Madrid Team News

Mateo Kovacic (groin) and Karim Benzema (hamstring) are the only two injury concerns for manager Zinedine Zidane.
