How Real Madrid could line up against Alaves

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Alaves.

Real Madrid will switch their attention back to La Liga on Saturday night as they prepare to welcome Basque side Alaves to the Spanish capital.

Los Blancos recorded an important 2-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday but have taken just one point from their last two league matches with Valencia and Villarreal.

Zinedine Zidane's side are currently fourth in Spain's top flight, six points behind leaders Real Sociedad, although they do have one game in hand over La Real.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Madrid could line up on home soil.

Out: Sergio Ramos (hamstring), Federico Valverde (shin), Luka Jovic (coronavirus), Karim Benzema (groin), Alvaro Odriozola (calf), Dani Carvajal (thigh)

Madrid will again be without the services of Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Odriozola and Federico Valverde this weekend through injury, while Luka Jovic's recent coronavirus positive test will rule the striker out of contention.

Karim Benzema is also still unavailable due to a groin issue, meaning that there could be another start in the final third of the field for Mariano Diaz.

Madrid confirmed on Friday that Dani Carvajal had picked up a thigh problem, but Eder Militao is available after a recent coronavirus test, meaning that the Brazilian could come into the back four, joining Nacho, Raphael Varane and Ferland Mendy.

Zidane is expected to shuffle his pack from the win over Inter, and there could be a return to the starting XI for Casemiro, with the Brazilian potentially joining Toni Kroos and Martin Odegaard in midfield.

Rodrygo Goes is also pushing for a spot in the final third, but Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior are options for change should Zidane decide to withdraw Lucas Vazquez from the XI.
