Real Madrid take on Alavés on Sunday at 12:00 CET local time (6:00 am ET). This will be Madrid’s second home match of the season and third league match overall. Currently, Las Blancas are a game behind the others, as their encounter vs. Granadilla was cancelled due to poor weather.

Alavés are not a team many will fear; their offensive options are limited and they are one-dimensional in their approach. However, Las Gloriosas look relatively better vs. bigger teams, since their defensive organization is strong and they tend to revert to back five looks. Expect Alavés to bunker in and go route one in an attempt to catch out a sleeping back line.
