Alaves are in dire need of a surge
This season, Alaves are making their fans very nervous, because they are last but one in the league, 4 points behind the desired 17th position. The situation is difficult, although not yet hopeless, they need to actively pick up points. In the last round, the club failed to beat Getafe away 2-2, but played on the power play from the 32nd minute, so this result cannot be considered positive. Despite their outsider status, Alaves are very dangerous and extremely motivated. One player will miss this game through injury.
Sevilla try to keep up with the leader
White Andalusia are usually fighting for the top 4 in the Primera, but now the club is clearly overachieving. Sevilla are second in the league, six points behind Real Madrid and eight points off their nearest pursuer. In the last round, Lopetegui’s side were able to beat Betis in a crucial derby, 2-1. It is clear from the results that the club is betting on the Primera Division, where they have not lost in 12 consecutive meetings. The club also continue to struggle in the Europa League, where they will play against West Ham in the 1/8 finals. Sevilla have two personnel losses ahead of this clash.
In the first round, the rivals drew 2-2, Sevilla played at home and could only escape defeat in injury time.
It is quite justified that Sevilla are considered favourites for this meeting, as they take the lead. Alaves also need points, regardless of the opponent, the level of motivation of the hosts should be higher. We expect the rivals to fight hard and suggest betting on an exchange of goals.
