Alaves vs Deportivo La Coruna Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Deportivo Alaves picked up a second consecutive league win after a shock 2-1 success over Villarreal at the La Ceramica. Rodrigo Ely came up with the opening goal after 39 minutes, and this advantage was doubled in the 71st minute when Ibai Gomez continued his good form with the second goal of the evening. Even though Carlos Bacca pulled one back for the Yellow Submarines, Abelardo saw his team hold on for the victory. Deportivo La Coruna lost 1-0 at home against Real Betis in the latest league outing. Loren Moron scored the only goal of the game from close range, as Clarence Seedorf suffered a defeat in his first game as the La Coruna manager.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alaves have been on a strong run of late with three wins in the last five league matches. Barcelona have been the only team to beat Alaves in the last five outings. Even with the new manager syndrome at La Coruna, the home team should have more than enough to get a positive result in the game. Surprisingly, the last three meetings between the two clubs at Mendizorrotza have been a draw. However, I would back a win for Deportivo Alaves.

Recent games involving Alaves have been filled with goals, and the last four matches have all produced over 2.5 goals. Deportivo La Coruna may have been unable to score in the last two games, but the team has been threatening going forward. I see value behind backing both teams to score.

Deportivo Alaves win – 10/11

Both teams to score – 4/5

Alaves saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Deportivo La Coruna saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves are pushing clear of the relegation zone following an impressive set of results. In the last five league matches, the team has suffered just one defeat – against title favourites Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Alaves have been able to open up a comfortable seven-point advantage over Las Palmas in the bottom three, but manager Abelardo will be quite confident about pushing further in the table. The overall conditions appear to favour Alaves since most of the next five matches are against teams around them in the table. Ibai Gomez is the club’s top scorer with five goals along with Munir.

Alaves Team News

Alaves only have Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee) and Carlos Martin Vigaray (knee) unavailable due to injuries.

Deportivo La Coruna Preview

The arrival of Clarence Seedorf certainly produced a reaction from the Deportivo La Coruna players, as the team had a relatively good performance against Real Betis at home. However, the failure to get a positive result might end up turning the momentum against the team. Just like Alaves, La Coruna also have a string of games that appear winnable. However, the team are at home in just two out of the next five games. Seedorf will be aware that La Coruna have picked up just one away victory throughout the campaign. Florin Andone leads the scoring charts with six goals.

Deportivo La Coruna Team News

Bicho (shoulder), Federico Valverde (muscle), and Bruno Gama (stomach) are the players unavailable for La Coruna.
