Alaves vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mendizorroza (Vitoria-Gazteiz).
Sevilla took advantage of Barcelona’s slip-ups to claim the very top of the Primera Division standings after winning two on the bounce in the competition. Los Rojiblancos dispatched Valladolid 1-0 last weekend at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan thanks to a 30th-minute goals from team’s top scorer Andre Silva. Pablo Machin’s men are now one point clear at the top of the standings coming into the 14th round fixture against Deportivo Alaves away at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
It could be a complicate fixture for Sevilla given they will be up against the fourth-placed side on the evening. Nevertheless, we have to mention Babazorros look to have seen a slide in form in the most recent set of outings. They fell 1-0 away at Leganes in the previous round. It was the second loss in last three matches for the team led by Abelardo.
Alaves vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Sevilla lead the head to head tie by three wins but they generally struggled a lot to leave Vitoria-Gazteiz victorious over the course of history.
Los Rojiblancos actually only won one, drew two and lost four of seven head to head games at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
All of past three H2H matches saw fewer than three goals scored.
Alaves vs Sevilla: Prediction
Alaves may have lost two of past three La Liga fixtures, but they remain a formidable force in front of the home crowd. Babazorros won four and drew two of six home matches in the league so far in the season. They’ve been very tough to break down in their own backyard allowing just four goals in six outings so far.
Sevilla enjoyed a run of three consecutive wins across competitions before a 1-0 loss to Standard Liege on Thursday on Europa League. We can say Machin’s men struggled with the efficiency in the past couple of games after they notched just one goal in last two outings against Valladolid and Standard Liege.
Knowing about Alaves’s home form this term, we find the Under 2.5 goals FT as the best of betting options for this one.
