Real Madrid will play Alaves on Sunday in 2018/19 La Liga as the season moves ahead. Real Madrid go into this game as the favourites.
Kick-off : 8:45 PM (Local)
Venue : Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid
Real Madrid progressed in the Copa del Rey in midweek to set up a mouth watering clash with Barcelona on the 6th of February. They will now look to focus back on the La Liga. They trail Barca by 11 points with a game in hand.
Los Blancos are currently third in the points table after 21 games with 39 points. Against Alaves they will look to play their brand of football to succeed.
On the other hand, Alaves are doing fine in 2018/19 La Liga and will look to improve further.
Alaves are currently sixth in the points table after 21 games with 32 points. In Real Madrid they have got classy opponents against whom they will look to give their all hoping for the best.
Alaves have their next three games against Levante, Real Betis and Celta Vigo in La Liga.
Real Madrid have done well against Alaves in recent times and they will look to continue the good work.
Team news and possible line-ups
Rodrigo Ely and Adrian Marin will both be not available for Alaves for the Real Madrid game as due to injuries. While Pina is available and might play.
As for Los Blancos, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal will both be unavailable as due to suspensions.
Alaves XI : Pacheco, Martin, Laguardia, Maripan, Duarte, Wakaso, M. Garcia, Pina, Burgui, Baston, Calleri.
Real Madrid XI : Courtois, Odriozola, Nacho, Ramos, Reguilon, Modric, Kroos, Casemiro, Bale, Benzema, Asensio.
It should be a good game as both teams will give their all but in the end I expect Real Madrid to get the job done and earn three points. They might win 3-1.
