Alaves coach Abelardo: Real Madrid world's best counter-attacking team

Alaves coach Abelardo Fernandez has declared Real Madrid the best counter-attacking team in the world.

Alaves meet Real today.

"They are the best team in the world in transition, they have such speed and precision," said Abelardo.

"When you play against either Real Madrid or Barcelona, you depend a lot on them having a bad day.

"It's unusual for Los Blancos not to score a goal at home, they have tremendous quality."
