The first half ends!

In a match with a lot of intensity, and perhaps not so much clarity in the final third of the pitch, Alavés and Real Madrid are level at 0-0 in their LaLiga 2021-2022 debut.
4:59 PMa month ago


One minute of compensation is added.
4:54 PMa month ago

However, the VAR does not call the referee to review said play.

4:49 PMa month ago


Close! Pere Pons takes advantage of a rebound inside the area and finishes with a lobbed shot that goes just a few centimeters over the crossbar. Undoubtedly, the most dangerous play of the match; Real Madrid is saved.

The intensity of the match has not dropped at all; although Real Madrid is already trying to have the ball, it is not able to progress through continuous possession, so it has started to try to play direct with Karim Benzema.
4:14 PMa month ago


The first few minutes were quite intense for both clubs; for now, it was the home side who took the initiative and looked the better side with their vertical attacks that ended with shots at the goal defended by Thibaut Courtois.

Real Madrid avoid talking about Kylian Mbappé

Regarding the case of Kylian Mbappé, who in recent days has been linked to Los Merengues for an alleged offer to be made to PSG for the French attacker, Carletto chose not to talk much about it: "I don't like to talk about a player who is not here, because I like to talk about my players. I really like this squad because it's a good mix of veterans and youngsters. They have a lot of desire and enthusiasm. I have discovered very interesting players like Arribas, Blanco, Miguel, Marvin or Chust".

Real Madrid, still without a full squad

Before the match, in a press conference, Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid's manager) - spoke about the competition: "It will be a very competitive league, with strong teams and we have to fight for it. The Spanish League is very competitive and I like it. It has many teams like Barcelona, Atletico or Sevilla. It is a competition that has its specific game characteristics and winning it would be very important for us".

Furthermore, when questioned about whether there could be movements in his squad, he commented: "It is not impossible to win the Champions League. It is true that other teams have signed and that it is a complicated market. Our squad is very strong and broad. It can compete against all the teams in the world. If the coach is able to get the players to give 100% of their quality, I agree that we can compete against everyone. The market ends on August 31 and I cannot confirm that we are going to close the squad. We'll see what happens, but I like the squad.

Player to watch for Deportivo Alavés

José Luis Mato | There is no doubt that Joselu is the offensive reference of the Babazorros, at least that is what he has shown in the last two seasons; in the previous one, the player who was formed several years ago in Real Madrid, scored 11 goals in 38 appearances. His performance will be fundamental for his club's aspirations.
