Our football match prediction:
Deportivo Alaves are enjoying a very successful season and they will be looking to claim yet another major scalp when they face league leaders Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 29. The newcomers did well to beat Real Sociedad in their last league match and the fact that they defeated Barcelona at Camp Nou in the first half of the season is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Madrid. However, beating los Blancos in the Spanish capital is easier said than done and we predict that Zinedine Zidane’s troops will fight tooth and nail in Sunday’s football match. Real Madrid are only two points clear of second-placed Barcelona in the La Liga standings and there is every chance the French tactician is going to field the best possible side against Deportivo Alaves. Cristiano Ronaldo helped Portugal defeated Hungary and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
