Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Real Madrid v. Alaves Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Real Madrid have looked almost unstoppable since the 2019-20 Liga season resumed last month, winning their first seven matches and propelling themselves to the top of the standings ahead of FC Barcelona. Los Merengues can't get complacent, however, because they know the job is far from over. They will take on Alaves on Friday in what promises to be a one-sided affair. While Los Blancos have gone undefeated at home this season – W13, D4 – Alaves rank as the second-worst away side in LaLiga, winning just two of 17 road (W2, D3, L12). To make things worse, Alaves have dropped their last five league matches, their last four games on the road, and have lost their last seven visits to Real Madrid – conceding at least three goals in each one of those losses. This seems like a game Real Madrid should win rather comfortably and by a sizable differential.
