La Liga line-ups: Alaves-Real Madrid

Real Madrid go with two up front against Alaves in La Liga this afternoon as they look to end a five-hour goal drought.

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema partner each other in Madrid's attack, with Dani Ceballos taking the No 10 role over the injured Isco.

However, Mariano Diaz and Vinicius are only good enough for the bench, despite the hype surrounding the pair and Los Blancos also winless in three matches.

Elsewhere, Alvaro Odriozola and Nacho Fernandez fill each full-back berth as Dani Carvajal and Marcelo are sidelined.

Alaves, meanwhile, have yet to lose at home this season and can move joint-top of La Liga if they beat Madrid and other results go their way.
