Real Madrid are looking to bounce back from the humiliation of their midweek Copa Del Rey exit when they visit Alaves in La Liga on Saturday evening.

Alaves vs Real Madrid Preview
Alaves have won just one of their last eight La Liga games and have lost each of their last three, yet having beaten Real Madrid earlier in the season. they will have hope of pulling off another shock this weekend.
Madrid head to the city of Vitoria off the back of one of the biggest debacles in their history, with the champions once again struggling to break down a resolute defence in Wednesday’s cup upset.

Opposing a high-scoring encounter makes sense, with Madrid not firing on all cylinders and Alaves like to be extremely defensive in their approach.
