Real Madrid visit Alaves’ Mendizorroza this Saturday right after hosting Paris Saint-Germain. It looks like coach Zinedine Zidane is ready to make some rotations as he’s left Raphael Varane out of the squad list. Eden Hazard will also miss the match after picking up a contusion during Tuesday’s game but the Belgian attacker should definitely recover in time for El Clasico.
Alaves are coming off two straight wins and should be considered a dangerous team at home. Real Madrid should try their very best to earn the three points here as Barcelona visit Atletico de Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday and could very well drop some points then.
Real Madrid completed a very good performance against PSG but two defensive mistakes ended up costing them the win. It will be interesting to see if Los Blancos can produce the same kind of offensive display away from the Bernabeu and without Eden Hazard in the starting XI.
