Real Madrid showed no signs of a Champions League hangover as they secured a resounding 4-0 victory over Granada on Saturday. This win extends their unbeaten run to an impressive 22 competitive games, with 16 wins and 6 draws. The team’s remarkable performance comes on the back of being crowned La Liga champions at the end of matchday 34.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will have the opportunity to lift the trophy in front of their fans after this game, creating a celebratory atmosphere at the Bernabéu. Additionally, Real Madrid has set their sights on the target of going unbeaten throughout an entire home league campaign, a feat they last achieved in the 2019/20 season. With the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on the horizon, Los Blancos show no signs of slowing down.

Real Madrid’s dominance in La Liga is evident, as they have not lost a game at home since April 2023, boasting an impressive record of 19 wins and 3 draws. The team’s consistency and determination have been key factors in their success.

Alavés Aims for Top-Half Finish

Alavés, on the other hand, is still vying for a top-half finish in La Liga, a position they have not achieved since the 2016/17 season. The team’s recent form has been promising, with a four-match unbeaten run consisting of 3 wins and 1 draw. Notably, Alavés has managed to secure four points from matches against teams in the top four, which should boost their confidence as they visit Madrid.

However, Alavés’ away form has been less impressive this season. Despite breaking a three-match losing streak on the road with a 1-0 victory against Valencia, it was only their third away win of the campaign, with 5 draws and 9 losses. Their previous victory at the Bernabéu with fans present dates back to May 2000, further highlighting the challenge they face.

Players to Watch

Arda Güler has been in fine form for Real Madrid, scoring two goals in his last three appearances for the team. Notably, all three of his goals this season have come in wins ‘to nil,’ showcasing his ability to contribute to the team’s success.

Jon Guridi has been a standout performer for Alavés, finding the back of the net three times in their last three games. Impressively, two of his goals were scored after the 50th minute, highlighting his impact in the latter stages of matches.

Real Madrid’s Dominance at Home

Real Madrid has established a formidable record in their Tuesday home games in La Liga, winning their last five fixtures by a margin of at least two goals. This home dominance further solidifies their status as a force to be reckoned with in the league.

As Real Madrid looks to continue their unbeaten streak and maintain their winning momentum, Alavés will be hoping to cause an upset and secure a memorable victory. However, it will undoubtedly be a challenging task for the visiting side given Real Madrid’s exceptional form and the electric atmosphere that awaits them at the Bernabéu.
