Real Madrid vs Alaves

, KO: 20:30 May 14, 2024, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu
Alaves

Newly crowned La Liga champions Real Madrid continue their victory lap as they welcome Alaves to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for a midweek fixture. Despite already winning the title, Los Blancos are showing no signs of slowing down and should be too strong for Alaves, who often struggle on their travels.

Real Madrid may have wrapped up the La Liga title but are still keen to maintain their competitiveness ahead of the Champions League final. Manager Carlo Ancelotti showed the full quality of the squad as a much changed side eased to a 4-0 victory at Granada last Saturday.

Los Blancos have been almost unstoppable in recent weeks, winning their last eight La Liga matches. They have also won their last six La Liga home matches, keeping five clean sheets in that run.

Sitting 11th on the table, the task for Alaves in the final weeks of the season will be to secure a place in the top half. Luis Garcia’s men have shown some good form lately, winning three of their last four matches, although they were held to a 2-2 draw by Girona in their previous fixture.

While things appear smooth for Alaves in recent weeks, their away form has been a bit problematic. They have picked up just one win in their five matches on the road, failing to score in four fixtures in that run.

How the bookies view it: Los Blancos all the way

The bookies are expecting a one-sided fixture, with Real Madrid installed as overwhelming favourites at 3/10 by bet365. An unlikely win for Alaves is valued at 15/2 while a draw is set at odds of 19/4.

Recent head to head: Always a mismatch

Real Madrid are always the dominant force in this fixture and have claimed seven wins from the last eight meetings with Alaves. Los Blancos picked up a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch. Eyes on Rudiger/Militao

Real Madrid have been solid at the back lately, keeping five clean sheets in their last six La Liga home matches. With eyes on the Champions League final, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao could be given more opportunities to re-forge their central defensive chemistry and can lead Los Blancos to another clean sheet at 10/11 with bet365.

At the other end of the pitch, the prolific trio of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Jude Bellingham could return to the team having been rested on Saturday. Vinicius is priced at 13/10 to score anytime, Rodrygo is valued at 6/4 while a goal for Bellingham is set at odds of 13/10 all on bet365.

Probable Line-ups

Having been rested last Saturday, first team players like Bellingham, Rodrygo and Vinicius could be given a run out on Tuesday. Rudiger and Militao should maintain their central defensive partnership while Thibault Courtois could be handed another start as he continues his return to full fitness.

For Alaves, top scorer Samu Omorodion is expected to return to the team after serving a suspension in the draw with Girona.

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Rudiger, Militao, Mendy, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Bellingham, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo
Alaves: Owono, Tenaglia, Abqar, Marin, Lopez, Guevara, Benavidez, Guridi, Simeone, Robles, Omorodion

Anything else catch the eye? Los Blancos to exert dominance

Real Madrid have won to nil in the last two meetings with Alaves and a repeat is priced at 11/10 by bet365. Having turned on the style last weekend at Granada, they could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 5/6 with bet365.

Los Blancos have won both halves in three of their last four La Liga home matches and could be set for a similar pattern at 7/4 with bet365.
