Alaves vs Eibar PredictionTwo sides lying adjacent each other on the La Liga table are set to battle it out for maximum points on Friday evening as Alaves welcome Eibar to the Estadio Mendizorrotza for a crunch league clash. Expect a pretty entertaining game in Alaves in this fixture.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 23
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)

Alaves currently sit 15th on the log, having garnered 24 points from 22 games so far. Six points away from safety, relegation is not necessarily a valid discussion for the home side at the moment. They are enjoying an impressive campaign and will be looking to climb further up the ladder.

Winning the reverse fixture and keeping a clean sheet in the process, the momentum appears to be in the courts of Babazorros.

A close encounter is expected here, given both sides play similarly and are currently sporting a similar run of form. As such, brace yourselves for a frantic encounter between these two three-points-desperate sides on Friday evening.

Alaves vs Eibar Team News

Alaves secured a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day against Sevilla. Despite dropping two points, a draw against one of the best teams in the league, that too on the road, would be considered a moral victory for Deportivo.

Elsewhere, Eibar were held to a draw at home by Real Betis. The score-line was 1-1, and it was the third winless game in a row for the former.
Going on, at home, Alaves have lost just thrice this whole season, and these three games had come against Real Madrid, Villarreal, and Sevilla.

They are also on a scoring streak of eight matches in front of the home crowd and have failed to find the back of the net at this venue just twice this campaign.

On the other hand, Eibar have a total of three wins on the road in 2019-20. Two of those three victories had come in the Copa del Rey, against teams from the lower division. The third win had come against Leganes, a relegation-battler in the La Liga.

Moreover, Eibar were booted out of the Copa just two weeks back by Badajoz, another squad from the lower divisions.

Home advantage will likely play a big role in determining the outcome of this game. The reason being, Alaves have been quite impressive in their home fixtures this season, while Eibar have struggled extremely once on the road.

In addition, Alaves had even won the reverse fixture, where they were on the road. Then, Deportivo had recorded a 0-2 win to post the three points on the board.

Moreover, Eibar have scored the same number of goals on the road as Mallorca – the worst road team in the league. Meanwhile, Alaves have so far conceded just eight goals in total in front of the home crowd, which is just one more than current table-toppers Real Madrid, and three fewer than reigning champions, Barcelona.

As such, expect Deportivo Alaves to have a great shot at posting a win this weekend. To be on the safe side though, we will opt for some risk-free options.

Injured or Suspended Players

Alaves: Mubarak Wakaso, Lucas Perez Martinez and Tomas Pina.

Eibar: Sergio Alvarez Diaz, Ivan Ramis, Gonzalo Escalante and Kike.

Alaves vs Eibar Predictions

Not only have Alaves won the reverse fixture on the road, but they kept a clean sheet as well that day. On top of that, Eibar have been completely shambolic in away games this season, and couple this to the fact that Alaves have lost at home only against some of the best teams in the league. Likely, expect a strong performance from Alaves this Friday.
