The new week in football will be without European competitions. But that has allowed the midweek fixtures to be filled with those concerning the top national championships of the Old World. Spain will not be left out, with the lion’s share of the tour taking place on Wednesday. Alaves and Espanyol will be playing on that time. The website has prepared an exclusive forecast for this match on May 11, 2022. For full information and all odds for the match, look at 1xbet download.
Alaves are trying to cling to any chances, but is it too late?
The Bean Destroyers, after returning to the Primera and making noise in their first year at a forgotten level, have since slipped rather quickly to the level of a survivalist. But year in and year out, the Vitoria representative was able to achieve satisfactory stability, scoring enough points all the time to avoid heading for relegation. But this walk on a knife edge should end in a logical fall to the Segunda – perhaps now? That’s something they want to avoid, and like many Spanish underdogs, Alaves are trying to make things right at the end, following a change of mentor. Julio Velasquez’s side managed to beat Rayo Vallecano and even Villarreal in April. May began with a trip to Celta – and there was a resounding 0-4 defeat.
Espanyol are no longer worried about anything
The Parrots were forced to spend last season in the Segunda. They managed to spend minimal time there, only the 2020/2021 draw. Still, after the club from Catalonia returned to their usual level, it was necessary, first of all, to score enough points not to go down again. And overall, the La Liga newcomer did well, starting to pick up points from the very first rounds. As a result, the 3.5-point mark was passed in March, which looked almost like an ironclad guarantee of retaining their place. But, having also beaten Celta on 10 April, then both Vicente Moreno and his charges seem to have finally relaxed. They suffered a series of defeats, failing to take points not only against Atletico and Real Madrid but also against Rayo Vallecano. And only with Osasuna at home were they able to equalise and take a draw.
Espanyol now has a nice series with 1 draw and 3 wins in the last 4 face-to-face meetings. Including a win in September thanks to the only goal of their scorer, De Tomas.
Alaves have won both of their previous home fixtures and it’s unlikely Espanyol will particularly hinder another 1st success for the survival fighter. We bet on the home side to win with a handicap of ‘0’ (odds – 1.666).
