It's fair to say that Real Madrid have experienced better weeks.
The Santiago Bernabéu side return to action tomorrow as they travel to the Basque capital to face struggling Deportivo Alaves in a match that viewers in the US can watch live on Fanatiz with the Basque outfit looking for a new direction after the re-appointment of Asturian coach Abelardo who has problems of his own after a 5-0 cup defeat to Almeria and his 'El Glorioso' side hover just above the drop zone.

David Bettoni, Zidane's number two was on hand to address the media and confirmed a serious numbers of absence in the Real Madrid squad with injury once again wreaking havoc on the first team squad.
Bettoni added: "At Real Madrid, every defeat brings criticism, but we have enough experience to know we've got a chance against Alaves to show everyone we're a unit," he said.
"We're all together in this and we're going to do all we can to take the three points. We work hard every day towards just that and we have another chance to show it."
Sergio Ramos did not feature in the cup tie on Wednesday and will once again be absent this weekend, while fellow defender Dani Carvajal is not yet ready to make a return. "With Sergio Ramos, he is in his recovery process and he won't be with us tomorrow," Bettoni confirmed.
"Dani Carvajal trained a little with us, but he won't be with us either and will be able to train normally from Monday."
Madrid have lost just one of their previous 15 away games in LaLiga but have found goals hard to come by this season, managing 30 in 18 games. That is their second-worst tally at this stage in the past 14 campaigns.
