Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Villarreal, Real Madrid will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga when they host Deportivo Alaves at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium. Los Blancos are six points behind league leaders Real Sociedad in the La Liga standings, meaning that Zinedine Zidane’s troops need to get back on course as soon as possible. Even though Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos are rated doubtful for the game, home win should be considered as the defending champions will fight tooth and nail against Alaves.
The Basque outfit dropped a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Valencia, but it has to be noted that they extended their unbeaten run to four games. Alaves are not regarded as good travellers, and even though midfielder Edgar Mendez is back from suspension, we are tempted to put our money on Eden Hazard and Co.
