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.

Real Madrid confirmed lineup vs Alaves (4-3-1-2): Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Mendy; Camavinga, Kroos, Valverde; Bellingham; Vinicius, Rodrygo.

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