Real Madrid: Do you know what this team needs? An absolute thrashing of an opponent. Their display against PSG was one of the worsts in several years in terms of attack. They finished with an xG of 0.14 and just three shots in the entire match, losing it on a late goal from Kylian Mbappe. Getting their momentum back in attack will be key, and Alaves are the perfect victims. Real have failed to score in their last two matches -- something that hasn't happened since May of last season.
Alaves: The 2-1 win over Valencia last time out was just the second time since Thanksgiving where they've scored twice in a league match. Dangerous on set pieces, they were able to score early and then get a late win via a penalty kick. Joselu is a player who will have to come up big for them to have any chance, and Alaves will be hoping to face a weakened team who may look to rest some players after playing in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Karim Benzema returns to form, scoring a brace as Real keep their mildly comfortable lead atop La Liga. Pick: Real Madrid 3, Alaves 0
