Deportivo Alaves vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Deportivo Alaves had to endure more disappointment after a 2-1 defeat against Valencia at home. Alaves conceded the opening goal in the 34th minute, as in-form Simone Zaza put Valencia ahead. Alexis, though, was able to help Alaves get back with the equaliser in the 49th minute, but the away team were back in front in the 66th minute through a penalty from Rodrigo. Espanyol beat Real Betis 1-0 at home to pick up the first win in five. Gerard Moreno came up with the only goal of the game in the 55th minute, although there was a hint of offside. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alaves have been very poor in front of goal this season and it has contributed to the team losing an incredible nine out of the 10 league matches. Even though Espanyol come into the game with no away wins under their belt this season, this match can be a prime candidate to get a victory. Espanyol were able to do the double over Deportivo Alaves last season. I would back a victory for Espanyol, and it is available at a very attractive price. The match is a prime candidate for under 2.5 goals with Espanyol managing to keep the scores down in the last four league matches. Alaves have scored in just three of the 10 league matches this season. I would go with a clean sheet for Espanyol.

Espanyol win – 8/5
Espanyol sheet – 7/4

Espanyol scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Espanyol have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played against Deportivo Alaves

Deportivo Alaves Preview

The struggles for Deportivo Alaves does not seem to be going away anytime soon, as the club have slumped to a fifth defeat in the last six matches. Alaves are heading down to a certain relegation if this current form does not improve before Christmas break. The club are already close to being cut off from the potential safety places, as Eibar are five points ahead while occupying the final safety spot. Alaves have struggled heavily with regard to scoring goals, but there are signs of improvement with the team managing four goals in the last five games of all competitions.

Deportivo Alaves Team News

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

Espanyol Preview

Espanyol will be relieved at being able to get the win over Real Betis, as it ends the long-standing wait for a victory. After having begun the season in a slow fashion, Espanyol are yet to hit the ground running and get a string of victories that will propel them into the top six of the table. One of the big advantages for Espanyol is that the team has suffered just three defeats so far this season. Two of those losses have come against the big two – Barcelona and Real Madrid. Espanyol may have conceded 12 goals in 10 matches, but it should be remembered that five of those goals were conceded against arch-rivals Barcelona. The club’s defence has been good so far this season. Gerard Moreno is the leading scorer at the club with four goals in the La Liga.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus) is the only injury problem for Espanyol.
