Atletico Madrid will face Departivo Alaves on Saturday at 8pm GMT. Presenting our exclusive Atletico Madrid vs Alaves Match Preview.
Atletico will welcome Departivo Alaves in Wanda Metropolitano on round 32 of La Liga. They are clear favorites for the match and will look to get 3 points. The Madrid club is currently the third in the table with 1point ahead of Sevilla playing 1match less. They will like to solidify their position in the top three against a weaker Alaves side. The home side hasn’t performed as expected in the early phases of the campaign. But they seemed to be back on track after the restart. They haven’t lost a match since mid-June winning the last three. The red and whites would like to maintain their winning streak before their mega clash against Barcelona this weekend.
Alaves performance was so so in this La Liga season. The basque side is on the 15th of the table with 14 loss and 9 wins. They lost 3 of the matches during La Liga restart. Alaves managed to keep the scores unsettled in the reverse fixture and they will look to do so here too. They got a tough fixture ahead as they will face two of the Madrid giants in their next four matches. They can climb up to the 13th spot of the table if they are able to win today but it seems a tough job for them.
