Usually, when we’re looking for writing betting preview for a game, we look at the history between two sides. For Alaves vs. Real Madrid, we have to look all the way to ’06 to find the last game between the two – and it doesn’t look well from the home side. Is there anything else to bet on this game except for a Real victory?
Alaves vs Real Madrid – 29/10/2016
Betting Odds: Alaves 13.00 or 12/1 Draw 6.50 or 11/2 Real Madrid 1.22 or 2/9
Although Alaves have produced the greatest surprise of the season so far, winning away from home against Barcelona, they are now slowly but surely moving down the table and losing most of their games.
They are a balanced team which should be able to avoid relegation, but games against a team like Real Madrid, especially if they are in form, are not the places you’d expect them to win points from.
They have so far won 4 points from duels with grand clubs, 3 against Barcelona and 1 against Atletico, but we wouldn’t expect them to win any against Real.
On the other side, what’s there to say about Real’s recent form? We’re more worried about the rumors that Ronaldo’s teammates have something against the Portuguese star. Apart from that, Real have scored 5 goals in 3 of their last 4 games, including a 6-1 win away against Betis.
Moreover, they are not dependent on their attackers, the famous BBC triangle – they also have other players like Morata, Asensio or James which can win games for them this time around.
Alaves vs Real Madid Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, Real to win is absolutely clear. Real -1,5 is certainly a choice worth exploring. High-odd bets could be Real and over 3,5 goals, Ronaldo to score, or even Real -2,5.
There really isn’t much exploring to be done here – Alaves have never won against Real in their entire history and only managed 2 draws, both taking place more than 15 years ago. If this doesn’t yell “clear game”, we don’t know what does.
