Deportivo Alaves hosts Valencia at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in a first game from the 27th round
Deportivo Alaves hosts Valencia at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in a first game from the 27th round of Spanish La Liga. We will try to give you some proper La Liga predictions for this fixture, so let’s start.
Deportivo Alaves start this round in La Liga from 13th place in the standings. They have 31 points won so far and an overall record of 8 wins, 7 draws and 11 defeats. They are on a pretty much safe distance from the relegation zone, so for them survival should not be a problem, we think. But let’s see.
In the previous round of the league Deportivo Alaves made their 7th draw for the season. Asier Garitano’s team visited Leganes at the Butarque, but the game ended without a winner – 1-1. The veteran Lucas Perez opened the score for the visitors, but Guido Garrillo equalised for the hosts.
For this next game against Valencia Alaves can’t use Pina and Rafa Navarro who are injured.
With their win over Real Betis at the Mestalla last week Valencia revived their hopes of a Top 4 finishing this season. Los Che are currently 7th in the standings with 41 points, but it’s just 4 points gap between them and the 4th Getafe. The club’s chances of returning to the Champions League next season are still pretty significant.
Albert Celades’ team won against Real Betis with two goals during the second half of the game. It was Kevin Gameiro and the captain Dani Parejo who scored the two winning goals for Valencia. For Los Che this match comes just four days before the second Champions League 1/8-finals clash against Atalanta.
These are our La Liga predictions for this fixture between Deportivo Alaves and Valencia on Friday. Los Che showed some winning spirit after their heavy loss against Atalanta in the Champions League, but Alaves won’t be easy to beat.
