Real Madrid host Alaves trying to recover from their last few disappointing results, mainly the recent 1-0 loss against Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday. Madrid simply need to regain some momentum and confidence as soon as possible, and tonight is a good opportunity for them to do so.
Ancelotti’s men are visibly tired and fatigue has become an issue after the Christmas break. Players like Vinicius and Kroos don’t look fresh anymore and the Italian coach could give them some rest sooner rather than later, as it’s crucial for them to be as fit as possible when PSG visit the Bernabeu in early March.
Alaves are fighting to avoid relegation right now but earned a key win against Valencia a week ago, so it looks like they are improving a bit. Still, Madrid are clearly the favorites to earn the three points and at least catch a bit of a break after the last few games.
