Alaves vs Valencia Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Deportivo Alaves once again fell to a 2-0 loss, as Real Betis were the victorious team this time around. Antonio Sanabria came up with the first goal after 13 minutes, and the game was made safe for Real Betis in the 75th minute when Alexis’ inadvertently diverted the ball into his own net. Valencia continued their impressive form with a 4-0 thrashing of fellow Champions League contenders Sevilla. The fluid Valencia team opened the scoring just before half-time through Goncalo Guedes. Second-half goals from Simone Zaza, Santi Mina, and Guedes made in a comprehensive win for the home team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alaves were able to get a victory over Valencia in the recent meeting, but this fixture has been dominated by Valencia with four wins in the last five. Marcelino’s team have been outstanding at the start of this La Liga 2017-18 season. The team are only a couple of points behind Barcelona and hold leads over Real Madrid and Sevilla. Alaves have lost at half-time and full-time in three out of the last five league matches, while Valencia have been winning in this position in four out of the last five. I would go with Valencia to win at half-time and full-time. Simone Zaza continued his impressive form by scoring for a fifth consecutive league match. It has taken his league tally to 8 for the season. The Italian completed a permanent move to the club after impressing on a loan spell last season. Even though he failed to score against Alaves last season, I would go with Simone Zaza to score anytime in the game.

Valencia to win at half-time and full-time – 7/5

Simone Zaza to score anytime – 13/10

Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves picked up a victory as Giovanni Di Biase came to the club, but the bad times have returned to the club once again. Back-to-back losses in the league mean that Deportivo Alaves are still several points away from safety even though the season is yet to see the back of October. Alaves may struggle with relegation throughout the season if their forward line up continues to be inept in front of goal. The team has just three goals in nine league matches this season. Even bottom club Malaga have scored more goals than Alaves.

Alaves Team News

Victor Laguardia (cruciate ligament), Victor Hernandez Ortega (knee), and Ibai Gomez (knee) are the players unavailable for Deportivo Alaves.

Valencia Preview

Valencia are close to getting back to their former self with the club flying high in the La Liga table. Marcelino has transformed the fortunes of Valencia, who were down near the relegation places for the last couple of years. Under his regime, Valencia have been transformed into a team capable of destroying any opponent that comes up against them. The lack of European distractions certainly helps the case for Valencia. The team has been on a goal scoring spree and it has largely been made possible due to Simone Zaza’s form. The summer signing is the top scorer at Valencia with eight goals for the season.

Valencia Team News

Dani Parejo is the player suspended for the game, while Javier Jimenez (cruciate ligament) is still unavailable.
