Possible lineups of Real Madrid-Alavés
Pablo Machín's Alavés and Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid will play against each other on the 11th matchday of LaLiga, a match that will take place this Saturday 28th November at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium.
Alavés is in 15th place in the league with ten points, two above Levante, who is currently in relegation. For their part, the Whites, after a 1-1 draw at La Cerámica, are in fourth place with 17 points.
Pablo Machín has an idea in his head to try and stop the 'merengues'. His main weapons will be Lucas Pérez and Joselu, a pair who have been able to put many defenders in a tight spot.
Also noteworthy is the return of Edgar Mendez, back after serving his suspension game last week. In relation to the injuries , the coach will not be able to count on the injured Pere Pons nor on Burgui and Manu Garcia, isolated after testing positive for coronavirus.
In relation to Madrid, Zidane, euphoric after winning against Inter in Champions at Giuseppe Meazza, will be forced to pull Lucas Vazquez at right-back after Carvajal's new injury was confirmed.
Varane and Nacho will repeat in the defence as they did in Milan, while Asensio will return to the team after not playing in the Champions League. Mariano will once again be the reference point for the 'merengues' in attack.
Possible line-ups for Real Madrid-Alavés
Real Madrid: Courtois; Lucas Vázquez, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Odegaard; Asensio, Hazard y Mariano.
Alavés: Pacheco; Ximo, Lejeune, Laguardia; Édgar, Battaglia, Pina, Peleteiro, Duarte; Joselu y Lucas Pérez.
