Real Madrid will look to put their La Liga campaign back on track when they travel to the Estadio de Mendizorroza to take on Alaves on Saturday afternoon. Alaves threw away a one-goal lead following Ruben Sobrino’s early goal to succumb to a 2-1 away loss at Levante. Meanwhile, Real Madrid were held to a nil-nil home draw by their city rivals Atletico Madrid. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Alaves were on a five-game unbeaten streak in La Liga prior to their 2-1 defeat on the road at Levante at the weekend. Despite the loss, Alaves still sit in a decent 6th position in the standings tied on eleven points with Espanyol. Alaves are now back on home soil where they are undefeated in four league outings. The bad news is that Alaves are winless in their eight home meetings with Real Madrid in La Liga.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, haven’t been at their best in La Liga recently, registering one defeat and one draw in their last two league fixtures. However, Los Blancos still sit second in the league table tied on 14 points with the current leaders Barcelona. The worrying thing is that Lopetegui’s men have won just once in their last six league trips.
Real Madrid should be able to grab all three points here despite their recent struggle in La Liga. However, we don’t expect a high-margin victory, so our betting tips and predictions would back the Asian Handicap +1.5, +2 on Alaves at odds 1.62.
