Problems in the defense for Madrid
Real Madrid could sweat when Alaves comes visiting on Saturday with the absence of key players like Dani Carvajal and Sergio Ramos.
The match is a must-win if the club wants to reduce the gap with table-toppers Real Sociedad who’ve enjoyed quality time since the start of the 2020/2021 season.
Although the whites have a game on hand, there’s still need to gather points since the season is still in its early days.
Zidane is expected to make technical changes to suit the matchday squad for Alaves tie.
