Despite their shock loss at home to Betis in midweek, we can’t look past a Real Madrid win at 4.15 with Unibet. Below you can read the reasons for our Alaves vs. Real Madrid predictions.
We expect Real Madrid to Win 3-0 at 7.5 with Unibet
Real Madrid are the favourites for this match with odds of 1.17 with bet365, as they look to get back to winning ways in La Liga and cut the 7 point lead that Barcelona have opened up.
The reigning Spanish and European champions haven’t had things all their own way so far this season, dropping points in their last three home matches and having to deal with a number of selection problems.
On Wednesday they were beaten in the last minute at home to Real Betis, a result which has caused a bit of panic in the capital. It was the first time they have failed to score in any match since April 2016.
In Alaves they face the league’s bottom club, who are without a manager and still yet to pick up a point or even score after five matches in La Liga. This is the perfect game for Real Madrid to regain some form.
Despite their troubles at home, Madrid have won both of their away matches so far this season and are 1.17 with bet365 to beat Alaves on Saturday. It may be more profitable to back them with a -1 handicap at 1.44 with bet365.
Cristiano Ronaldo is now back after his well documented 5 match ban, and will be keen to finally get off the mark in La Liga and catch up with Lionel Messi, who has 9 goals already from 5 matches. Bet on Ronaldo To score first at 3.0 with Unibet
Last season, Madrid won 4-1 at Mendizorrotza and we could see a similar winning margin here. However, with Alaves yet to score in La Liga it’s hard to see their first goal coming against a team of Real’s quality.
Marcelo, Benzema, Theo Hernandez, Kovacic and Kroos are all out, but we don’t see this stopping Madrid from prevailing, with a 3-0 win priced at 7.5 with Unibet.
Alaves host Real Madrid at the Mendizorrotza Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Los Blancos can’t afford to drop any more points with Barcelona already seven ahead.
Madrid haven’t yet hit their form of last season, and have struggled this season at the Bernabeu particularly. However, away from home they still strong.
Real Madrid Form: LWWDDW
After an excellent campaign last season on their return to La Liga, Alaves have come crashing back to earth so far this season. 5 matches, 5 losses and 0 goals saw manager Luis Zubeldía get the sack.
Alaves Form: LLLLLL
Alaves have only ever beaten Real Madrid once in their history. They did cause a number of shocks last season – winning in the Camp Nou, drawing away at Atletico and reaching the Copa del Rey final – but that must feel like a long time ago now for fans after their poor start to 2017/18.
Madrid are in the midst of an injury crisis, with Marcelo the latest addition to the treatment table after sustaining a bicep injury. Benzema, Kovacic, Theo Hernandez and Toni Kroos are also out.
Bojan is out for Alaves. The former Barca man limped out of last week’s 3-0 home loss to Villarreal. Victor Laguardia and Litri are also out long term.
