Deportivo Alaves vs Leganes
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Alaves saw their brave march to the playoffs being halted, at least temporarily, by the joint effort of Atletico Madrid and Sevilla.
The team which was on a good run got thrashed by Atleti at home, and then on the road against Sevilla. The top-six prospect, Alaves, who occupies the seventh spot as of now, trailing by just two points below the European positions, will treat this tie with paramount importance.
Leganes has a different story to tell. They won the last two matches in a row, and look like, would have an outside chance to represent Spain in the continent. But for that to happen, the remaining fixtures need to be dealt with absolute desire to win, and complacency cannot have a place in the players’ midst.

Alaves vs Leganes Prediction
Alaves will view this match as an opportunity to get over their recent setbacks and continue on with their efforts to qualify for Europe. They are just two points away from such a spot, and with this tie being at home, fans are hopeful for a win.
H2h matches surely do support such a premise. 100% of games saw the teams at home avoiding a loss, which also means, at this venue, Alaves has a 100% unbeaten record against Leganes. Moreover, Alaves is not the team they were in the previous seasons. They were unbeaten in 19 of their last 22 home ties, and at one point were in the top-tier of the table along with the powerhouses.
Going on, Leganes avoided a win in 17 of their last 21 away ties and lost five of their last seven as well. Coupling this with the home teams’ dominance in h2h match-ups, expect a win for Deportivo.
Leganes is hopeful of a European spot and will give a fight for it as well. Moreover, they have a scoring streak going on against Alaves in the last nine meetings on the trot. Also keep in mind that Alaves conceded a total of six goals in their last two games, and four alone in their last home tie. Expect the visitors to get a taste of scoring as well.
