The correlation of forces before the match Alaves vs Real Madrid
This summer, Alaves underwent a powerful force surgery. According to records from la liga, the Mendizorrotza stadium team bought, recalled the lenders and borrowed from other teams a total of 16 players on the summer market this year.
Meanwhile, in the opposite direction, Alaves also sold, returning those who borrowed last season a total of 15 players. A massive purge, but according to football betting experts today, most of Alaves’ recruitments are just popular players.
Therefore, Alaves will almost certainly still play with a familiar framework in this season’s opening match against Real Madrid. In particular, the greatest hope of the visitors is still the experienced striker pair Joselu – Lucas Perez. Rookie striker Hara and talented young striker Facundo Pellistri will be ready on the bench to come on at any time.

On the opposite side of the field, Real Madrid is missing a series of personnel. According to the odds, midfielder Toni Kroos, defenders Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola and player who just returned from Arsenal, Dani Ceballos, will all be absent due to insufficient fitness. And star Eden Hazard is not sure to play because he is still racing against time to recover from a groin injury.
The good news for Real Madrid is that their biggest signing, defender David Alaba is ready to play. With Alaba sure to start, Nacho and Eder Militao will have to compete for the remaining center back position in Real Madrid’s 4-3-3 formation in the opening match.
In addition, the number one striker, Karim Benzema, has tested negative 3 times after being treated for Covid-19. But most likely, the French assassin will also only come on from the bench, if Real Madrid is deadlocked. Real Madrid’s three strikers in this match, according to the bookie’s football assessment, will include Luka Jovic, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior.
Expected lineup Alaves vs Real Madrid
+ Alaves: Pacheco; Aguirregabiria, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte; Pons, Moya, Pina, Rioja; Joselu, Perez
+ Real Madrid: Courtois; Vazquez, Nacho, Alaba, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Valverde; Rodrygo, Jovic, Vinicius
