- Real Madrid have won five of their nine league matches this season
- Real Madrid have shipped only ten goals in their nine games in La Liga this term
- Alaves have netted only nine times in La Liga in 2020-21
Real Madrid set routine victory against Alaves
Real Madrid are fighting to keep on the toes of the La Liga pacesetters but they should take great confidence from their win over Inter Milan on Wednesday and are fancied to brush aside Alaves.
Los Blancos won 2-0 away to Inter in the Champions League, racking up 63 per cent possession and winning the shot count 14-5 at the San Siro, meaning they have won three of their last five contests in all competitions.
Alaves, meanwhile, have managed only two wins from their ten league assignments in 2020-21 and have looked short of ideas in the final third with only nine goals.
They have, however, held Barcelona, Levante and Valencia to draws in their last three games and can make life tough for Real. We predict a Real Madrid win in a game featuring under 3.5 goals. In terms of the scoreline, given that each of Alaves’s last two league defeats have been by two-goal margins, 2-0 could be the way to go.
