Deportivo Alaves vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Sevilla has made the most of the shortcomings of some of the titans of the league this season. At present, the team is placed second in the table, with an unbeaten tag attached to their name.
While they had won both of their opening two fixtures, they were dramatically held to a draw at home by Celta Vigo in the most recent match-day, and that too with an 84th-minute equalizer.
As of now, only Atleti sits atop them in the table and considering a tough outing for Diego Simeone’s men next in their schedule, this is an opportunity for the Sevillistas to make a pass at the top-most spot.
But things might not be as open-and-shut as the squad thinks it would be. They are on the road this weekend, and the opponents are Alaves, who too are invincible till point in the La Liga. And impressively enough, the squad is yet to concede in front of their home crowd in home fixtures.
The Spanish League has slowly turned on their beacons signaling a change that a duopoly by Real and Barca would no longer be peacefully tolerated by the rest of the roster, and neutral fans have everything to be excited.

- Seven of the last ten wins went to Sevilla.

- In the last two decades, only one encounter has seen over 2.5 goals.
Alaves vs Sevilla Prediction
While both teams are unbeaten in this campaign, the home advantage and the struggles of Sevilla over the years in h2h clashes at this venue presents the tag of the favorites to the hosts. To make things precise, the guests have scored a total of four goals at this stadium in the previous 20 years and won just once during this period.
Moreover, home teams have generally had the upper hand in battles between these teams as a general rule of thumb too.
As such, count on the home team to avoid a loss at the least.
But counting on the overall form of the Sevillistas, their comparatively superior achievements in La Liga as well as Europe over the last few years, and their 100% win-record on the road in the league this campaign, a clean sheet for the hosts seems out of question.
Consequentially, the expected outcome is for the hosts to avoid heartbreak, while failing to keep their nets clean.
