Los Blancos will be looking to overcome their painful defeat to PSG. The impact of the said defeat was so much that there talks of sacking Carlo Ancelotti. The Spanish giants will be keen to make sure that the hangover of Champions League defeat does not affect them in La Liga.
While Alaves are fighting at the other end of the table. The Babazorros are currently 18th on the table with twenty points. Currently, they are four points off the safety zone. Going into this game, they are not expected to get anything from this game. However, they are very desperate for points right now. Alaves will try to fight for every point.
Thier idea will be to go on level on score against Real Madrid this game. Thus, for the home side, it becomes more important to score an early goal. Otherwise, the away side will get more confident in the game as the match progresses. However, on paper Los Blancos are likely to get a win.

The two managers have faced each other only once, and the Italian was the winner over his Spanish counterpart.
RM vs ALA Live: Players to Watch out for
Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)
With Karim Benzema not being fully fit, Los Blancos don’t really have a natural goalscorer. Bale was a part of the feared BBC alongside Benzema and Ronaldo. Thus, with Carlo Ancelotti in search of goals, the natural option is the former Spurs winger. He is still capable of winning games on his own.
Depertivo Alaves (Mamaduo Loum)
The midfielder acts as an additional defensive shield to Babazorros’ defence, with Tomas Pina occupying the defensive midfielder position. The Senegalese international is also very good at interceptions. With Real Madrid trying hard to move the ball around quickly, his interceptions become even more crucial. This will also help the away side to launch counterattacks.

12th Man Prediction: Real Madrid 2 vs Depertivo Alaves
Despite their poor performance against PSG, Los Blancos still have enough quality to go past Alaves. They have players who can decide games on their own. Also, defensively, the away side hasn’t been good, thus giving Real Madrid more opportunities.
