Real Madrid: It’s a brutal month for Real. The team’s opponents following this one, in order: Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Ajax, Girona, Levante, Barcelona, Barcelona, Ajax. That’s such a tough stretch with a couple trap games mixed in. Over the next month, Real will either make or break their season.
Alaves: The club has cooled off a bit as of late, winning just two of its last 10 games. Alaves is still in a great spot in the table but right behind them are a bunch of teams vying for European spots like Getafe, Valencia, Real Betis and Real Sociedad. This is a match the team isn’t expected to get anything from, so a draw would be a fine result.
