Prediction: Real Madrid to win 2-1

Best Odds: 13/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Alaves and Real Madrid will face each other in La Liga this weekend. The match will be held at the Mendizorrotza Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 9pm UK on Saturday.

Alaves

As expected, Alaves were fighting against relegation from La Liga for most of last season. In the end, they ended up 16th in the standings with 38 points from 38 matches, four points above the bottom three.

This will be the sixth straight season in which Alaves will play in La Liga. It is very likely that the Basque club will be hoping to avoid the dreaded drop to the Segunda Division.

Team News:

Joselu and Lucas Perez are likely to start for Alaves.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid missed out on the La Liga title on the final day of last season. Los Blancos had won the championship in 2019-20 and were aiming to make it two league titles in a row.

However, it was city rivals Atletico Madrid who won the title last season, but only on the final day and eventually ended up two points clear at the top. Carlo Ancelotti is back in charge of Madrid, and the Italian tactician will be determined to get the title back.

Team News:

Toni Kroos, Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola and Dani Ceballos are all out while Eden Hazard has a hamstring injury.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Alaves scored 36 goals in La Liga last season.
  • Real Madrid scored 67 goals in La Liga last season.
  • Alaves conceded 57 goals in La Liga last season.
  • Real Madrid conceded 28 goals in La Liga last season.

Conclusion

Madrid have lost players such as Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane this summer, but they still have more than enough to get it over the line against Alaves.

Prediction: Real Madrid to win 2-1

Best Odds: 13/2
