The Yellow Submarine, on the other side, took just 9 points so far. They are just one point above the drop zone line at the moment. They were winless in four subsequent games in all competitions before trashing Austrian Rapid Vienna 5-0 on Thursday evening in Europa League. Can such big victory boost up the much-needed confidence and guide Javi Calleja’s men to the league success here?

Alaves vs Villarreal: Head-to-head

It’s interesting to note that Alaves have a positive head to head record against the Yellow Submarine.

Babazorros lead the H2H tie by three wins ahead of 19th clash with Villarreal.

Teams snatched a win apiece on the road when they met each other in the previous term of Primera Division.

Three or more goals were seen in four of last five head to head matches.

Alaves vs Villarreal: Prediction

Pablo Fornals, Karl Toko Ekambi and Gerard Moreno were all on target in the aforementioned thumping of Rapid Vienna in Europa League. Could such strong attacking showing inspire the domestic win for Villarreal even though they are up against a super stern defense of Alaves’?

The Yellow Submarine were also very tough to break down so far in the season. They kept three straight clean sheets on travels before falling 3-1 to Espanyol in the previous away fixture in the league.

As we expect both teams to start with a rather more careful approach at the back, the low-scoring scenario seems to be just the way to go here.

Alaves vs Villarreal: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66 (4/6)
  • Under 0.5 goals in the first half @ 3.50 (5/2).
