Alavés vs Real Madrid – La Liga: On the second match of this 6th round of the Spanish league,
we will witness a clash at the Mendiozorrotza stadium between…
Alavés, who currently sit in the bottom of the league table, and Real Madrid, who is in 8th place.
On the hosts’ side, there are several unavailable players, namely Héctor Hernandez, Victor Languardia and Bojan Krkic.
While Munir El Haddadi is still doubtful; for the visitors, there are also some unavailable players as well, namely Karim Benzema, Mateo Kovacic and Theo Hernández, while Marcelo is still doubtful for this match.
The hosts are having a terrible start to this new season and I don’t predict any sort of success for them on this new season.
Since they sit in last place of the league table, tied with Málaga, with 0 points gained and being the only team that hasn’t scored a single goal yet after 5 matches played. They also have one of the worst defensive records in the league.
As for Real Madrid, they aggravated the crisis that seemed to be disappearing, when they lost to Bétis, at home, on a very frustrating match for them.
Where they ended up being punished by their nonchalance with a goal from their opponents in injury time, which honoured the good strategy of Quique Sétien’s team.
The team has some important absences, namely Benzema and possibly Marcelo, which is something that could worry Zidane.
Alavés vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Real Madrid seems to be struggling with a series of issues on this beginning of the season.
Which is something that could aggravate with Benzema’s absence, which forced Zidane to use Ronaldo as a replacement, which will hurt their firepower, despite the criticism that sometimes the French player is under.
Adding that to the fact that Alavés should park the bus, taking advantage of their own stadium to delay their opponent’s goal as much as possible.
And I believe that Real Madrid will have some issues to win this match, so we shouldn’t see too many goals.
