Team news, latest form, and possible lineups for Real Madrid vs Alaves
While the home team is the obvious favourite in this game, we should still take a closer look at both teams ahead of this match:
It's been a tough week for Real Madrid since they first failed to beat Villarreal in the last round of La Liga and then they lost in the first leg of Top 16 stage in Champions League to PSG after conceding a goal at the end of the game. Still, a 1-0 loss in Paris is not that bad ahead of the rematch, but overall, it's clear that Real Madrid isn't at their best lately.
On the bright side, Real Madrid currently has almost completely clean bill of health since only Mariano Diaz is injured at the moment and the rest of squad is available for selection.
Real Madrid predicted lineup:
Courtois – Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy – Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos – Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
After eleven matches without a win, Alaves finally broke through in the last round and recorded a win over Valencia. This will certainly be a great confidence boost for the team, but on the downside, their next game is a duel with Real in Madrid. Alaves is still in the relegation zone, but they are now just four points behind Granada, the first team outside of the relegation zone.
Ximo Navarro remains out with an injury, but other than Navarro, Alaves is otherwise healthy and we will be able to see their best players in this game.
Alaves predicted lineup:
Pacheco – Tenaglia, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte – Jason, Escalante, Pina, Loum, Rioja – Joselu
