Real Madrid vs Alaves: Predicted Lineups

Real Madrid return to La Liga action on Tuesday night, looking to extend their winning streak to nine games. Their opponents, Alaves, are in impressive form themselves, having held high-flying Girona in their last match.

Los Blancos, recently crowned champions, will likely use this match to give some key players a rest ahead of the Champions League final. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has already hinted at squad rotation, with big names like Vinicius Junior, Dani Carvajal, and Jude Bellingham potentially starting.

David Alaba remains out with a long-term knee injury, while Aurelien Tchouameni is a doubt for the European showpiece due to a foot problem. However, other than these concerns, Real Madrid have a clean bill of health.

Expect to see some fresh faces in the starting lineup, with Federico Valverde and Ferland Mendy also pushing for a return. Thibaut Courtois, likely the starter for the Champions League final, is expected to get another run-out in goal.

Alaves, meanwhile, have their own injury concerns with Aleksandar Sedlar out. However, on-loan striker Samu Omorodion returns after a suspension, giving them a boost in attack.

Kike Garcia is set to lead the line for the Basque side, supported by Guridi who bagged a brace against Girona. Jesus Owono, who made his first appearance of the season on Saturday, might be replaced by their first-choice goalkeeper Antonio Sivera for this important clash.

Here’s a look at how the teams might line up:

Real Madrid (Possible): Courtois; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Camavinga, Kroos; Bellingham; Diaz, Vinicius

Alaves (Possible): Sivera; Tenaglia, Abqar, Marin, J Lopez; Benavidez, Guevara; Vicente, Guridi, Simeone; Kike Garcia
