In Zinedine Zidane’s career to date, never has he dropped points against Alaves, either as a player or as coach.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have been something of a LaLiga revelation, comfortably above relegation spots and battling for Europa League spots, not to mention the Copa del Rey run to the final.
In the three victories Zizou has against the Basque side as a player, two came at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, a golazo of his in 2002 included.
As a coach earlier this year, it was a 4-1 away victory at Estadio Mendizorroza.
The French boss will hope that a similar result goes his side’s way come Sunday at 16:15 CET.
