The Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium will be the venue for the Spanish league game between Real Madrid and Deportivo Alaves on Saturday.
Alaves on the other hand have taken a point in their last three games in the league since beating Real Valladolid by two goals to nil last month.
Pablo Machin side lie 15th on the league table with ten points taken after 10 games played in the top flight. They are yet to beat Madrid away from home in their last five games in the league, a record the manager will be looking to break over the weekend.
A win for Zinedine Zidane’s team will take them to 20 points and close the gap on the first position.
