Real Madrid vs Alaves: Live info, Preview & Prediction

Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alavés
Spain - La Liga
Date: Saturday, November 28, 2020
Start at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Place: Alfredo di Stefano Stadium (Madrid).

The reigning champions have been caught twice off guard recently as they battle to return to the league this season. The 1-1 draw on the road against Villarreal last time out will be heartwarming after their 4-1 loss away from home in Valencia on the schedule.

Now that Zidane and his team are back home, we can expect everyone to fire up when they return home after a Champions League win against Inter Milan.

Alavés is seven points behind the host in the league standings as it stands. The visitor has collected 10 points from 2 wins and 4 draws in his 10 league appearances. They are undefeated in the last four meetings of the season with three consecutive draws.

The 2-2 draw at home with Valencia in the last La Liga match marked their third consecutive draw. Along with that, it was their third straight game in which both teams scored.

Real Madrid vs Alavés  Head to head

  • The host has recorded 14 of the last fifteen overall victories.
  • Their previous encounter gave Los Blancos a 2-0 home win.
  • Both teams have scored in just one of the last five games.
  • The host has been undefeated at home for the last three games.
  • None of their last thirteen games have ended in a draw.
  • Los Blancos haven't lost any of their games at home since 1999.

Real Madrid vs Alavés Prediction 

There is no doubt that Real Madrid have what it takes to turn the tables at any point in the season. Last season's post-turnover lockout was an example of that, which ended with Los Blancos kissing the league title at the end.

The host enjoys the advantage of the terrain in the game. Having lost just one of their three home games so far this season, the home team will have more control in the middle. Their only problem is squad injuries, and they'll work hard to make up for their captain's absence.

The Champions League victory will improve squad morale. Along with that, Hazard found the back of the net in that win, which will push him further. With their injury problem, we can expect the champions to play more defense. Therefore, under 3.5 goals is probably the best bet for punters.

A full-time home win will likely be another suitable option for bettors to get decent returns in the game. Furthermore, Los Blancos have not lost any of their h2h encounters at home with the traveling side.
