Alaves vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Alaves have won successive matches to nil to ease their relegation fears and lift them to 13th in the standings – in a congested table, they are just three points from seventh.
Real Madrid have undergone a turbulent campaign so far but are unbeaten seven six – winning five in that time – with just one defeat in their last 13, at Real Mallorca.
However, despite a recent disappointing scoreless draw at home to Real Betis – they won emphatically at Eibar and then over Real Sociedad last time out, and sit level on points with Barcelona at the top of the league.
The hosts are unsurprisingly favourites for this encounter at odds of 1/2 with an Alaves victory priced at 11/2 and the draw available at 7/2.
Madrid have five clean sheets in seven and eight in total all season, so under 2.5 goals at 13/10 appears to be a solid bet with under 1.5 at 7/2.
A ‘double chance’ on Alaves to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 13/8 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/10.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 13/10.
One to watch for Alaves: Three of striker Joselu’s six La Liga goals this season have come in his past two games and he is the man to watch here, priced at 10/3 to score anytime.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has nine from 11 in the league this time out. Is priced at 21/20 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept five clean sheets in seven, while Alaves have not conceded in two games and have conceded just two more La Liga goals than Barcelona. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
