After a fair amount of wait, Real Madrid are finally close to La Liga title, they are a point ahead of Barcelona with one less fixture played. And a draw would mean giving Barcelona a chance and we know Barcelona don’t miss out on chances very often. On the other hand Alaves’ season didn’t go according to plan. They are two spots above the relegation zone and will invest their 100% percent against Real Madrid and even a point will work for them.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Mendy, Militao, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio
Alaves possible starting lineup:
Jimenez; Aguirregabiria, Laguardia, Magellan, Marin; Pons, Fejsa, Pina, Mendez; Joselu, Perez
Don’t know what will be going on in Zizu’s mind at the moment with a number of his star players sidelined. Eden Hazzard is already struggling from the injury and Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal are suspended due to booking and won’t be able to compete in one of the most crucial fixtures of the season.
On the other hand, Alaves will be without Duarte who is out for the rest of the season while they will also be without their first choice goalkeeper who is out due to a muscular problem.
Real Madrid will be taking home an easy win and maintain their pressure on Barcelona who are going through a lot after Messi has refused to sign a new contract. Benzema, Modric are the men to look forward to and they always come as a difference whenever Real plays. 3 Points for Real Madrid. Here are latest odds for this matchup – 10Bet.
