Alaves vs Real Madrid / LaLiga – A look at the table reveals that this is one of the most interesting duels in the 8th round of LaLiga, even though Real is objectively much stronger than Alaves. The hosts were pleasant surprises this season and they already have three victories, with defeats in the first and last round. Real has started with three wins, but they are now in a series of three games without defeat, and they only have three points more than Alaves. Real has resolved nine of their mutual duels in their favour.
Alaves vs Real Madrid begins 06.10.2018 at 18:30 CET
Alaves has gradually lifted their form and after a defeat from Barcelona and a draw with Betis, they made three wins, and then fell again gradually. Two rounds ago they played a draw with Getafe on their field in the match which they scored a goal for the final 1-1 in the injury time, while they in the last round lost for the second time this season. They took an early lead in the match against Levante, but they have received two goals by the end of the first half and it was 2-1 by the end.
Coach Abelardo made a whole lot of changes in the starting lineup after a draw with Getafe, and even five new players have found themselves in the team from the first minute. The result shows that it did not help, while R.Duarte and Burgui had to leave the game early due to injuries. They are questionable for this duel, but we expect a several now changes in the composition, primarily offensive players Jony and Calleri.
Probable lineups Alaves: Pacheco – Martin, Laguardia, Maripan, X.Navarro – Manu Garcia, Ibai Gomez, Pina, Jony – Sobrino, Calleri
At the very beginning of the championship, it seemed that Real is not affected by the departures of Ronaldo and coach Zidane, but a different opinion already prevails. He defeated Real in the first three matches, with the proviso that their rivals were considerably weaker. They also defeated Espanyol and Rome in the Champions League, and that was their best game so far. In the previous three games, all the problems of the “Royal club” came to light and it happened that Real did not score in three consecutive games which did not happen to this club for a long time.
This negative series started against Sevilla, where they had received three goals by the half-time and in the second half, they could not score even a goal. In the big city derby with Atletico, they also had their chance but the result was 0-0. On Tuesday they played against CSKA in Moscow in the Champions League and in that match, the coach Lopetegui has sent a truly combined team to the field and they lost everything after a goal received at the very beginning of the match. Now there will be a lot stronger on the field but without the injured Isca, Carvajal and Marcelo.
Probable lineups Real Madrid: Courtois – Odriozola, Ramos, Varane, Nacho – Casemiro, T.Kroos, Modric – Asensio, M.Diaz, Bale
Alaves vs Real Madrid PICK
Alaves is unexpectedly good this season, although they have fallen in shape, they will not need a special motive against Real. On the other hand, the team from Madrid is three games without a goal, and we expect them to play better in this duel, but they could also receive some goals.
