La Liga continues tonight as Real Madrid host Deportivo Alavés at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano. Don't miss a kick by following our Real Madrid vs Alavés live stream guide below.

Real Madrid are looking to maintain their lead at the top of La Liga with a win over Alavés. Los Blancos have taken all 21 available points in their seven games since the unscheduled league break, slingshotting them to the top of La Liga. On the other hand, struggling Alavés have recorded one victory and six defeats since June, leaving them at risk of being drawn into a relegation battle.

Zinedine Zidane's men are determined to lift the La Liga trophy, having not won the league since 2017. Rivals Barcelona dropping points in their post-lockdown games allowed Real Madrid to sure up their lead in this season's title race, though any slip-ups could open the door for Barça to reclaim top spot as the season approaches its end. The team will be without Dani Carvajal and Sergio Ramos in this game due to suspension, though Raphael Varane has rejoined the squad in training and will be available.

Alavés notched their only post-lockdown victory against Real Sociedad but it has been a string of consecutive defeats since then including a 6-0 drubbing at Celta Vigo. Babazorros are just above the relegation zone with just four games of the 2019/20 campaign remaining and picking up points at this stage is crucial to mathematically guarantee their La Liga survival.

The odds seem tipped in Real Madrid's favor ahead of tonight's game considering league position and recent form, though you'll have to tune in to see who will come out on top in this La Liga clash. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Real Madrid vs Alavés no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
