Deportivo Alaves vs Real Madrid Prediction
Deportivo Alaves are on a two-match winning streak at the moment. Their last clash on the road saw them slot two unanswered goals past Eibar. Prior to that fixture, they picked up a 3-0 win over Valladolid at home.
The hosts are currently unbeaten in their last four games on home soil as well, and have amassed ten points from a possible twelve.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will be making the trip to Estadio Mendizorrotza on the back of a frustrating 2-2 draw against PSG at home. Despite leading for the majority part of that latter matchup, the visitors succumbed to two quick goals in the space of three minutes and were forced to settle for just a share of the spoils.
Nevertheless, the away side have been a force to reckon with, in the La Liga, and have been recording back to back wins in their last two games. Furthermore, Los Blancos have stumbled just once on the road this season.
It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have come out on top in four of their last five visits here. As such, count on Real Madrid to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Additionally, it looks like the visitors are back to their usual goal-scoring self. Zinedine Zidane’s men have found the back of the net two times or more in all of their previous four games in all competitions.
Moreover, four of their past five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs with over 2.5 goals on the charts. With Deportivo Alaves netting more than half of their sixteen goals so far at home as well, expect goals to be in abundance this weekend.
