Real Madrid are in a strong position to move forward and stake a claim for the La Liga title, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side having won twelve of their first sixteen domestic clashes. They are averaging more than two goals per game and might continue in that vein against an Alaves side who are making a decent fist of staying in the Spanish top flight.

Luis García Plaza was able to engineer promotion last term and survival is now the focus although scoring goals has been a challenge. As things stand, the team are averaging less than one per game and they will look to put plenty of players behind the ball against a Real side who are clearly dangerous opponents, with Jude Bellingham the division’s top scorer.

There might be some rotation within the visitors’ camp after a Sunday clash against Villarreal, with Real having experienced a busy season thus far. Joselu could be worth including in respective Bet Builders after his recent Champions League brace against Union Berlin, although it’s interesting to note that they were previously held by Betis.

On that occasion, Betis won the shot count by six goals to two, although it remains to be seen whether Alaves can pose the same sort of competition. At the time of writing, the team have experienced a real upsurge and registered four wins in the space of seven games, with the team beating Almeria and Granada in November.
