Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves: Preview and Predictions

Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 24 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).

Real Madrid have confirmed the spell of excellent form in mid-week when they eased past Deportivo Leganes on the toad getting the revenge for the shocking Copa del Rey elimination earlier in the year. The success is greater if we know that the defending champions have done it without their star man Cristiano Ronaldo who was not even on the bench, while Gareth Bale only came in late in the second half to play some minutes.

Zinedine Zidane’s men will now be looking to maintain such form and pick up yet another victory on Saturday afternoon when they host Deportivo Alaves at Santiago Bernabeu. We can expect to see the Portuguese superstar back in the squad as well as Gareth Bale to start from the first minute in a possible return to the 4-4-2 diamond formation with this du in the final third.

Nonetheless, Deportivo Slaves will be a much tougher nut to crack since the visitors look really impressive under Abelardo. The Spanish manager has indeed managed to turn a corner for Babazorros who have not only escaped the drop zone but came into genuine contest of the top-half finish at the end of the campaign.

The visitors head into this on the back of three straight wins in La Liga conceding only two goals in last three matches against the likes of Celta Vigo, Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna.

Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves: Head-to-head

Alaves have never been a tricky opponent for Real Madrid over the history.

Babazorros have only won 1 of 15 H2H meetings with Los Blancos who have picked up as many as 12 victories along the way.

Real Madrid will head into this off the back of seven consecut9ive wins over Alaves.

Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves: Prediction

Zidane’s side are massive favourites, just as the odds suggest, but we don’t believe the hosts will fill Alaves’ net to the max here since Abelardo’s men knew how to keep things quiet at the back lately.

We thus believe you just can’t make a mistake backing the Under 4.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.44 (a banker), while you can also take Babazorros not to lose by three or more goals difference at 1.80.

Real Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves: Bet Tips

Under 4.5 goals FT @ 1.44

Deportivo Alaves +2.5 handicap @ 1.80
