Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After recording yet another triumph thanks to Sergio Ramos’ goal from the penalty spot, Real Madrid will be aiming to cement top position in the standings when they face Deportivo Alaves. Los Blancos are on the right track to regain the La Liga title, but boss Zinedine Zidane must warn his men against complacency. Both Dani Carvajal and Sergio Ramos are sidelined through suspension, while Raphael Varane could recover in time to face Alaves.
The Basques, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Real Valladolid. Alaves are on a five-game losing run in the Spanish top flight, and given the importance of the match for los Blancos, home win should be considered. Ruben Duarte, who picked up a knock in the defeat to La Pucela, is unlikely to feature against Real Madrid. In their last meeting in the Spanish capital Real Madrid defeated Deportivo Alaves 3-0.
