Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stefano Stadium (Madrid).
The reigning champions have been caught twice off guard recently as they struggle to make a comeback in the league this season. The 1-1 draw on the road against Villarreal last time out will be comforting after their 4-1 loss away from home at Valencia in the schedule.
Now that Zidane and team are back at home, we can expect all guns blazing as they return home after a Champions League victory against Inter Milan.
Alaves is seven points behind the host in the league table as it stands. The visitor has picked up 10 points from 2 wins and 4 draws in their 10 league appearances. They are unbeaten in the last four clashes in the campaign with three consecutive draws in it.
The 2-2 draw at home with Valencia in the last La Liga encounter marked their third draw in a row. Along with that, it was their third consecutive game to see both teams scoring.
Real Madrid vs Alaves Head-to-head (h2h)

- Both teams have scored in only one of the recent five fixtures.

Real Madrid vs Alaves Prediction
There is no doubt that Real Madrid has what it takes to turn the tables at any moment in the campaign season. The last season’s turnover post lockdown was an example of that, which ended with the Los Blancos kissing the league title in the end.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game. Having lost only one of their three home matches so far this term, the home team will have more control in the middle. Their only problem lies in injuries in the squad, and they will work hard to level the absence of their captain.
The Champions League victory will improve the morale of the squad. Along with that, Hazard found the back of the net in that win, which will push him further. With their trouble of injuries, we can expect the champions to play more defensively. So, under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
The home win in full-time will probably be another suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter. Besides, Los Blancos have lost none of their h2h meetings at home with the traveling side.
