Welcome to the Evening Standard’s La Liga match coverage of Alaves vs Real Madrid LIVE.

Real are seeking a win today to put pressure on Barcelona before the Liga leaders’ tough trip to Atletico Madrid on Sunday night.

Zinedine Zidane’s side – second only by virtue of a slightly inferior goal difference – have been much improved of late, easing past Galatasaray, Eibar and Real Sociedad before throwing away a two-goal lead against Paris Saint-Germain in a dramatic Champions League encounter in midweek.

Opponents Alaves – managed by Asier Garitano – sit 13th in La Liga after back-to-back wins over Real Valladolid and Eibar.

With kick-off scheduled for 12pm GMT at Mendizorroza Stadium, follow all the match action with Ben Hayward in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
