Visitors Alaves, meanwhile, are down in 11th but have been in strong form of late, winning three of their last four matches.

Aurelien Tchouameni won't play again in La Liga this season and is instead aiming to be fit for the Champions League final against Dortmund in June. Los Blancos have a clean slate of injuries elsewhere in the squad but manager Carlo Ancelotti will keep the majority of his first-team stars out of the starting XI.

Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior and Antonio Rudiger are among those likely to be rested, with minutes instead handed to fringe players like Arda Guler, Joselu and Fran Garcia.

Brahim Diaz starred in the 4-0 win over Granada on Saturday and will get the chance to build on that performance here.

Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Alaves (4-3-1-2): Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Nacho, Garcia; Camavinga, Modric, Valverde; Diaz; Guler, Joselu.

Alaves will be without Aleksandar Sedlar and Ruben Duarte on Tuesday night but are bolstered by the return of top scorer Samu Omorodion from a one-match suspension.

Andoni Gorosabel should also start at right-back having been an unused substitute for Friday's 2-2 draw with Girona, where a 98th-minute equaliser from Jon Guridi nicked a point.

Alaves predicted lineup vs Real Madrid (4-3-3): Sivera; Gorosabel, Marin, Abqar, Lopez; Benavidez, Blanco, Guridi; Sola, Omorodion, Rioja.

Madrid showed in their thrashing of Granada they will continue to steamroll opposition despite their vast starting XI changes in preparation for the Champions League final next month.

Their fringe players are all trying to sneak their way into Ancelotti's thinking for the showpiece at Wembley Stadium and, while Alaves have the recent form to suggest they could make life difficult for Tuesday's hosts, Madrid should have enough about them to secure a ninth straight La Liga victory.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-0 Alaves
