The Budgerigars picked up four out of possible six points from two opening games in spite of having a tricky schedule with outings against Celta Vigo and Valencia. Rubi’s men were especially impressive in the 2-0 victory over the Bats last weekend. Can they keep such form going and get more points on the board after the trip to Vitoria-Gazteiz?

Espanyol’s rock-solid defense should have the opportunity to maintain the fine record (just one goal conceded so far) knowing they’ll be up against an outfit which is yet to find the back of the net in the new season.

Whilst nobody expected Babazorros to score against Bareclona at Camp Nou, the goalless draw to Real Betis on the home patch was certainly a failure, especially if we know that Los Beticos conceded three goals at home to Levante on the opening day.

Alaves vs Espanyol: Head-to-head

The head to head stats is all tied at six wins, draws and losses for each of the teams.

It is interesting to note that none of last seven head to head matches saw goals at both ends.

Fewer than two goals were seen in each of last five H2H games.

The previous meeting, played in early-April, saw a goalless draw at RCDE Stadium.

Alaves vs Espanyol: Prediction

Looking at the head to head trend and Alaves’ struggles to create up front, we just have to go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the primary betting suggestion at the 1.50 odds. As for the outcome, we fancy Espanyol not to lose as sort of a banker at 1.42, while you can also back the visitors to keep another clean sheet at quite attractive 2.62 odds.

This term’s acquisition Borja Iglesias, who dominated Segunda Division football last season, scored his maiden goal for Espanyol seven days ago against Valencia and he could inspire the visitors’ victory against the struggling opposition here. Braver punters can thus go for the away win at the 2.55 odds.

Alaves vs Espanyol: Bet Tips

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.50
