Alaves v Real Madrid Betting: Los Blancos to extend winning away record

Real Madrid's demanding fans left the Bernabeu bitterly disappointed on Wednesday as their side succumbed to a late goal to lose 1-0 at home to Real Betis.

It was Los Blancos' third home league game of the season and Zinedine Zidane's men are yet to win a La Liga clash this term in their own stadium, with just two points claimed from their opening three home games.

Fortunately for the European champions, their next game is on the road where they have amassed a club record 11 successive wins, and their opponents on Saturday afternoon are bottom of the table Alaves.

The Basques were our ante-post tip to go down and their start to the season has been even poorer than we anticipated, with five defeats from five and no goals scored; this led to manager Luis Zubeldia being sacked after last weekend's 3-0 defeat by Villarreal, but interim manager Javier Cabello could not inspire the side in midweek as they went down 1-0 at Deportivo La Coruna.

A visit from a wounded Real Madrid side is the last thing that Alaves need and dabblebet offer them at 14/1 (15.00) to record a first win of the season., meanwhile Madrid can be backed at 2/11 (1.22) with the draw priced at 6/1 (7.00) - but realistically we are looking at a comfortable away win here.

Los Blancos' 11 successive away wins have seen them score 36 goals in the process and last season Madrid were 4-1 winners at the Estadio Mendizorroza, therefore backing a high-scoring encounter appeals with over 3.5 goals offered at 10/11 (1.91), yet we will take the price of 11/10 (2.10) for the visitors to win with a -2 handicap.

With Madrid in great scoring form on the road and the hosts yet to score this season, that should lead to Zidane's men winning by at least a three goal margin.
