Match Preview

The Abelardo revolution is still going strong, ahead of our Real Madrid vs Alaves preview and soccer odds, but taking three points at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu might be a bit of a tall ask for a side that have only just started to look like a threat on the road.

Alaves recently took three points from La Ceramica when they beat Villarreal by a 2-1 scoreline, but Real Madrid have been looking a little sharper of late. Home wins versus Deportivo La Coruna and Real Sociedad were followed up by a 3-1 first-leg scoreline in their Champions League knock-out fixture versus Paris Saint-Germain.

Our Real Madrid vs Alaves predictions back the away side to be a pain and definitely capable of hurting Los Blancos on the break, which makes backing a home victory but them also conceding at least one goal the way to go in our weekend La Liga tips.

The away side are certainly a threat and have proved since their new manager has come into the job that they can compete with anybody. Zinedine Zidane’s side, however, are starting to find the back of the net with regularity again, and are started to show a little more confidence in themselves.

Real Madrid vs Alaves Prediction and Betting Advice

Alaves haven’t kept a clean sheet on the road in La Liga since September, with their away form in the division not really comparable between what they do at Mendizorroza and the results that they are capable of picking up on their travels. They have, however, scored at both La Ceramica and Camp Nou recently to make life really tough for both Villarreal and Barcelona.

William Hill offers the best odds on the home side taking three points but also failing to keep a clean sheet, which looks likely given the chopping and changing that Zidane keeps making in their defensive line. Alaves are direct and like to counter at pace, with such a set up sure to catch out Los Blancos from time to time due to how vertical they are.

Real Madrid lost consecutive games at home of late, versus two teams that Alaves competed with valiantly, Barcelona and Villarreal. Since then, Zidane’s men have bounced back with 7-1 and 5-2 results against Deportivo and Real Sociedad respectively. After looking blunt for a while, they’ve at least found their scoring touch again.

Our Real Madrid vs Alaves bets back the away side to be capable of hitting the back of the net at the Santiago Bernabeu, especially with Los Blancos not having kept a clean sheet in the league there since 2017. Real Sociedad, Depor, Villarreal and Barcelona have all found ways to beat Keylor Navas, with El Glorioso set to be the next.

Betfair offer the best odds on there being three goals or more in the Spanish capital, which looks incredibly likely given the number of goals have been scored on Real Madrid’s home patch lately. During their last two home fixtures in the top flight alone, there have been 15 goals. Alaves are tighter at the back, but with the hosts set to dominate possession, they will likely find a way through more than just once.

Our Real Madrid vs Alaves betting tips suggest that Los Blancos will be able to extend their resurgent form at home in La Liga, but Alaves are sure to push them all of the way. Cristiano Ronaldo and company will likely have to grind out a big three points against a team that just don’t know when they are beaten.
