Worth mentioning: Real Madrid continue with their perfect run after the league’s restart, winning all of the seven matches. Each of the last three Real outings finished with the same score of 1:0, as the last two were decided by Serio Ramos penalty kicks. The team has conceded just two goals since mid-June, also keeping five clean sheets, including in the last four encounters. Only one of Real’s last five meetings produced over 2,5 goals, and only the same saw both involved sides to score.
Alaves’ recent form is in stark contrast to that of their next opponents. The team lost all of its last five matches, scoring only a single goal in the process. No draw has been registered in Alaves seven games since La Liga’s renewal in June. Two of their last five matches featured over 2,5 goals, and understandably only one witnessed goals at both ends. Alaves have been unable to score more than a goal in the previous eleven games on the road, and recorded only a single victory in the process.
