Real Madrid continued their recent resurgence with a useful win at Leganes in midweek and are also expected to account for Alaves at the Bernabeu.

The Whites have won all three encounters since Alaves returned to Spain’s top flight, although the visitors have netted in two of them and do go into this contest in good heart following a trio of LaLiga victories.

With Zinedine Zidane’s side having failed to keep a clean sheet in eight matches, 5/4 for the champions to win and both teams to score gets the nod in our Real Madrid vs Alaves betting predictions.

A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds

We cashed in with the same bet in our preview of Real Madrid’s 3-1 triumph at Leganes on Wednesday, even though Cristiano Ronaldo was rested for that trip.

The Whites went behind after just six minutes at Butarque but hit back with first-half goals from Lucas Vazquez and Casemiro, before Sergio Ramos wrapped things up via a late penalty.

That was a fourth straight victory for Real, who have scored 22 times in a six-match unbeaten run.

“We’ve had a tough spell and now things are coming off for us because we’re doing a good job,” said Zidane on the club website.

“We’re playing with confidence, we’ve got more belief and we’re all giving that bit extra.

“The result of all that is that we’re winning games again, we’re not worried if the opposition score.”

That last comment makes 14/5 for the hosts to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 appeal again from the Real Madrid vs Alaves odds.

A Look At Alaves’ Betting Odds

Alaves have recovered well from starting the season with six straight LaLiga losses and are up to 15th in the table following recent wins over Celta Vigo, Villarreal and Deportivo.

Munir El Haddadi has netted in two of those victories, taking his tally into double figures since joining on loan from Barcelona last summer, but sadly misses out through suspension.

However, with Ramos reportedly set to join Marcelo on the sidelines for Real this weekend, we still feel Alaves can make an impression going forward.

The Whites can be caught out by players breaking through from midfield, so 13/4 for Ibai Gomez to score at anytime is a value pick for our Real Madrid vs Alaves betting tips.
