Villarreal vs Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Villarreal’s three-game winning sequence came to an end after a 2-1 loss against Real Betis in the latest league outing. Villarreal were handicapped throughout the game as Daniele Bonera received a red card after just 31 minutes. Loren Morón capitalised on the advantage by scoring just before half-time with a spectacular long-range effort, while he doubled the advantage in the 65th minute. A late penalty from Carlos Bacca did little to improve the situation at Villarreal. Deportivo Alaves picked up a first win in five games after a 2-1 home victory over Celta de Vigo. Alaves received an early advantage with Alfonso Pedraza and Munir scoring inside 18 minutes. Iago Aspas scored deep in injury time to hand the away team a consolation.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alaves have been scoring at a decent pace in recent weeks, while Villarreal have kept just one clean sheet in five. After having conceded four goals in the last two games, Javier Calleja will be keen on a clean sheet, but this Alaves outfit has been able to score in two out of the last three games against Villarreal. I see reason behind going with both teams to score. The last three matches at the La Ceramica has witnessed the Yellow Submarines score more than 1.5 goals in each of the games. There is a high probability of the same repeating itself, as Alaves have conceded at an average of more than two goals per match in the away games. I would back Villarreal to score over 1.5 goals.

Both teams to score – 1/1

Villarreal to score over 1.5 goals – 5/6

Villarreal saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played against Alaves

Villarreal Preview

Villarreal manager Javier Calleja will not be too disappointed with the defeat against Real Betis, as the circumstances against his team were quite bad. The loss also did not have a major toll on the top four ambitions, as Real Madrid remain only two points ahead – albeit with a game in hand. Villarreal continued to hold a healthy lead over Sevilla, who are four points behind. The transfer market provided a major setback for the club with the departure of Cedric Bakambu, but players like Enes Unal and Carlos Bacca have done well. The latter is the top scorer at the club with seven goals this season.

Villarreal Team News

Villarreal have a lengthy injury list with Ruben Semedo (thigh), Nicola Sansone (calf), Leonardo Suarez (cruciate ligament), Andres Fernandez (cruciate ligament), Roberto Soriano (knee), and Ramiro Guerra (knee) are the names unavailable, while Rodri and Daniele Bonera are suspended for the game.

Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves were able to secure a much-needed victory by beating Celta de Vigo at home. A string of four matches in all competitions came and went without providing Alaves with joy. One of the few consolations for the team during the terrible run in 2018 has been their decent scoring touch. Alaves have been able to score at least once in the last five games of all competitions, a commendable achievement considering that the team has come up against quality opposition like Valencia and Barcelona in this period. Munir is the club’s top scorer with five goals.

Alaves Team News

Ibai Gomez (personal reasons), Hector Hernandez Ortega (knee), and Carlos Martin Vigaray (knee) are the names unavailable for Deportivo Alaves.
