Real Madrid vs Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Madrid were able to get a fourth consecutive win after beating Leganes 3-1 at the Municipal de Butarque. Zinedine Zidane’s team seemed like getting back to their old self when they conceded after six minutes through Bustinza. However, Lucas Vazquez and Casemiro quickly helped Real Madrid gain an advantage. A late penalty from Sergio Ramos provided a big win for Zidane. Deportivo Alaves picked up a third consecutive win after beating La Coruna 1-0 at home. The away team were rather disappointing in the game and Munir provided the only goal with a fine long-range effort in the 61st minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Madrid’s defensive issues simply do not seem to go away, as the team failed to keep a clean sheet against Leganes in the midweek action. It is now an incredible nine La Liga matches since Real Madrid last managed a clean sheet, while this Deportivo Alaves outfit have been able to score in each of the last nine games in all competitions. Sergio Ramos’ absence will make Madrid even likely to concede goals. I see tremendous value in backing both teams to score. The head-to-head meetings between these two teams reveals the incredible dominance Madrid have had in terms of scoring goals – 20 in the last six meetings. Madrid have scored under 2.5 goals only once in this period. Even with Alaves being prudent in front of goal, I would back Madrid to score over 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – 10/11

Real Madrid to score over 2.5 goals – 1/2

Real Madrid scored over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Real Madrid scored over 2.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played against Alaves

Alaves saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played against Real Madrid

Real Madrid Preview

Real Madrid are finally on a strong winning form which is likely to see them make up more ground on the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Even with Barcelona dropping four points in the last three La Liga matches, Real Madrid will not be aiming for the La Liga title this year. The club already have set their sights upon the Champions League, but finishing the domestic campaign in good form and qualifying automatically for the Champions League next season will be a priority. Madrid will also be keen on stopping the defensive rot. Despite not being involved in the midweek action, Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s top scorer with 12 goals.

Real Madrid Team News

Sergio Ramos is suspended for the game. Marcelo (hamstring), Toni Kroos (knee), Luka Modric (hamstring), and Jesus Vallejo (thigh) are the names unavailable due to injury.

Alaves Preview

Alaves have made up significant ground with regard to moving away from the relegation zone, as a run of three consecutive wins puts the team 10 points ahead of Las Palmas in the 18th place. Alaves will be able to relax for the time being, as the bottom three outfits have managed a combined two wins in the last 18 games. The clean sheet against La Coruna was also important for Alaves, as it was the first in six games. Munir is now the clear top scorer at Alaves with six league goals.

Alaves Team News

The match-winner against La Coruna, Munir, is unavailable due to suspension. Manager Abelardo will also be without Carlos Martin Vigaray (knee) and Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee). Burgui is rated is doubtful with a groin injury.
