Atletico Madrid vs Deportivo Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atletico Madrid kept pace with the La Liga table leaders after a 1-0 victory over Real Betis. Saul Niguez came up with the only goal of the game to provide three points and a clean sheet for Diego Simeone’s team. Deportivo Alaves were able to get a 2-0 home victory over Las Palmas to strengthen their escape route. Ibai Gomez came up with a hat-trick to rescue Alaves in the recent game and he helped the hosts take the lead in the 23rd minute. Munir scored from an unlikely angle to make the game safe for Alaves. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Atletico team may face a tough game with Alaves coming as a rejuvenated outfit over the last few weeks. After having picked up three consecutive wins in all competitions, Alaves may be in a great position to extend their excellent head-to-head record against Atletico. Alaves have lost only once against Atletico in the last six meetings – going back to 2002. Both games in the 2016-17 season were a stalemate. I would place money on a draw. Even though Alaves’ wholesome defensive record makes for a grim reading with 24 goals conceded, the team has kept clean sheets in two of the last three games in all competitions. Alaves have improved at the back, while Atletico may struggle without Antoine Griezmann in the team. I would place money on this game to experience less than 2.5 goals – just like the meetings last season.

Atletico Madrid Preview

Atletico Madrid were able to quickly recover from a tough away match at Stamford Bridge, where the team had to face the disappointment of dropping into the Europa League, to get a close win over Real Betis. This victory helped Atletico retain a two-point advantage over Real Madrid, while their deficit to Valencia still remains at one point. Diego Simeone will be quite pleased with the situation, as it presents Atletico with the chance to pounce on the second spot – or even the top – anytime soon. French superstar Antoine Griezmann has become the top scorer at Atletico after taking his tally to five goals.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Antoine Griezmann (thigh) and Nicolas Gaitan (discomfort) are the players unavailable for Atletico Madrid.

Deportivo Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves are inching closer to its moving away from the drop zone, as the team have gone through a spectacular run of form. Against the run of play, Alaves have been able to get three consecutive victories in all competitions. Specifically with regard to the La Liga 2017-18 games, Alaves have managed three wins in the last five – an impressive statistic for a team that had managed just one win in the first 10 games of the season. Alaves no longer possess a poor defensive record as the team has conceded a bulk of their 24 goals in the first few months of the season. Ibai Gomez is now the top scorer at Alaves with four goals in the league.

Deportivo Alaves Team News

Victor Laguardia (cruciate ligament), Rodrigo Ely (thigh), Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee), Carlos Martin Vigaray (knee), and Ruben Sobrino (groin) are the players unavailable for Alaves.
