The Alaves He goes to the Wanda Metropolitano this Sunday to face Atlético de Madrid (18:30) in an apparently very uneven clash. But those of ‘Pitu’ Abelardo want to break the forecasts and return from their third visit to the Community of Madrid with some point, as in the previous two.
Because four of the nine points that the babazorros have added as visitors they conquered them in said community: three in Valdebebas, against Real Madrid and one in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, in front of Getafe.
The triumph against Zinedine Zidane’s team dates back to November 29th and it is the last victory that the Vitoria team has obtained as a visitor this year. Since that 1-2, Alavés has played eight encounters away from Mendizorrotza with a disappointing baggage of six losses and two draws, against Osasuna (1-1 on matchday 16) and Getafe (0-0 on matchday 21).
That goalless draw against the azulones on January 31 is the last loot achieved by the Alava team as a visitor. And the fourth point that they took back to Vitoria on their second visit to the Madrid community. This Sunday is the third time and Alavés hopes to return with some point that will serve, at least, to feed their permanence dream.
