Deportivo Alaves vs Girona
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 19 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Mendozorroza (Vitoria-Gazteiz).
Deportivo Alaves found the way out of a crisis by snatching subsequent clean sheet wins over Getafe and Eibar. Can they make it three in a row on Thursday evening when the struggling Girona side come to visit Estadio de Mendizrroza?
Pablo Machin’s squad may have been the most pleasant surprise of the maiden season in the elite, but they look to be sliding down in form at the moment. They’ll travel to Vitoria-Gazteiz off the back of consecutive defeats to Real Sociedad and Real Betis with a dreadful 0-6 goal difference in the process. Furthermore, Girona took only a single point from last four league ties.
The visitors could struggle to find the net here as well knowing they are up against an outfit which kept three straight clean sheets in Primera Division. Ti make things worse for Machin, Alaves were almost impeccable in front of the home crowd recently, having won four of last five matches at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
Deportivo Alaves vs Girona: Head-to-head
Teams have four wins apiece ahead of their 11th head to head encounter.
Girona took a single victory in four visits to Mendizorroza.
Alaves came on tip when the two teams played each other in early-December at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (2-3).
Deportivo Alaves vs Girona: Prediction
We just have to see the value in backing Babazorros to keep things tight at the back here. Girona obviously struggled for gaols badly of late failing to score a single in last two league losses. Abelardo’s men, on the other side, kept their net untouched in each of last three league games. Alaves to keep a clean sheet is priced up at 2.62.
You can also back the home win at 2.37 given that Babazorros head into this as the massive from favourites. Girona lost four out of last five away fixtures in Primera. Alaves defeated them in the first part of the season on the road, and we don’t see why they wouldn’t do the same in front of their fans.
