Alaves vs Valencia Prediction and Betting Preview, 06 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Top-four hopefuls Valencia will be making a trip to Estadio Mendizorrotza to take on bottom-half side Alaves in a crunch La Liga clash on Friday night. The home side will be more than delighted at the prospect of welcoming a side as huge as Valencia for a league fixture.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 27
Kick-off:
Venue: Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)
Alaves have been pretty decent this campaign, managing to steer clear from relegation talks with a whopping nine points separating them from 18th-placed Real Mallorca. Head coach Asier Garitano deserves tons of credit for the way he has got his Alaves side playing this season.

At times, we have seen these cluster of players exchange pin-point passes in a Barcelona-esque fashion, much to the delight of the club supporters. However, with their lack of consistency, El Glorioso have struggled to maintain high level of performances all-through the season.

Though considered outsiders for the top-four, the visiting contingent have risen above pre-season expectations to put up a fight for a Champions League place finish.

Just four points adrift of Getafe in fourth place, Valencia will be looking to close in on top-four with victory over inconsistent opponents Alaves. Expect goals down both ends of the pitch at the end of the ninety minutes.

Alaves vs Valencia Team News

In a precarious position on the league standings, where a single slip could see them drop more than four places on the log, Alaves were required to clinch maximum points against Leganes on away soil last time out.

However, El Glorioso were dealt a major blow as they struggled to bag all three points despite dominating the game from start to finish. Leganes huffed and puffed throughout the game to post a hard-fought one-all draw against Asier Garitano’s charges.

That aside, Alaves have been on an imperious run of form this season, attracting the attention of fans and the media alike. They have tasted defeat only once in their previous five games and are on a two-game winning run on home soil.

The home side couldn’t be heading into this fixture on a more comfortable note. Confidence levels seem sky-high within the club’s dressing room and they will be looking to use momentum to maximum effect against a much more formidable Valencia side.

Valencia, on the other hand, were handed an easy game against Real Betis on the last match-day and Los Ches made light work of their opponents in front of the home crowd. The away side giving Albert Celades’ men a run for their money, Valencia managed to post a 2-1 score-line on the board.

Prior to the victory, Los Ches had not recorded a single win in their preceding six league games with four losses to their name in that time. With that kind of record, you can imagine the huge sigh of relief these players must have heaved after finally registering a win last weekend.

The Estadio Mendizorrotza has been regarded as something of a fortress this season as Alaves have put their best foot forward on this ground. Six of their eight wins this campaign have come on this ground and you can sense another spirited performance from Alaves this weekend.

Injured or Suspended Players

Alaves: Aleix Vidal, Tomas Pina and Roberto Jimenez.

Valencia: Ezequiel Garay, Maximiliano Gomez and Rodrigo Moreno.

Following a return to winning ways on the last match-day, Valencia have finally broken their little hoodoo and will want to get their faltering campaign right back on track. With a Champions League spot on offer, the visitors will feel extra-motivated to go all out for the win.

However, they won’t have it easy against Alaves who have maintained an impressive record on home soil. This sets us up for an entertaining clash between these two sides this weekend.

Expect goals down both ends of the pitch, with each side breaching the other, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes.
