Deportivo Alaves vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 1 March 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Mendizorroza (Vitoria-Gazteiz).
Levante look to be sliding down the Primera Division standings at an alarming rate coming into mid-week’s lash with Deportivo Alaves. The Frogs have made it three defeats on the trot in La Liga on Monday evening when they fell 0-2 to Real Betis at home in the last game of the Matchday and they are still only a single point above the drop line ahead of the tough trip to Vitoria-Gazteiz.
Juan Muniz and his men will thus be the perfect opposition for Deportivo Alaves to regain the confidence after suffering a demolishing 4-0 defeat to the reigning champions Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The hosts have won three on the bounce beforehand, and they will have a nice opportunity to return on this winning thread in front of the home crowd against the struggling opposition.
Abelardo’s men have been super impressive in their own backyard lately winning five and drawing one of last six league matches at Estadio de Mendizorroza. Given that thesy are now about to come face to face to Levante who have lost three on the bounce with the goal difference of 1-8 along the way, we can hardly ignore the home win pick at the 1.72 odds.
Deportivo Alaves vs Levante: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also favour Alaves who have won 6, drawn 3 and lost only 1 of 10 H2H ties with Levante over the history.
Babazorros saw off Levante 0-2 at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia when the two teams first met in this term of Primera Division.
Prior to that clash, it’s been eight years since they’ve last locked horns, and back then they were battling it out in Segunda Division.
Deportivo Alaves vs Levante: Prediction
The hosts are massive favourites according to both the current form and the head to head tradition and we truly expect a pleasant evening for Alaves’ fans on Thursday.
Since Juan Muniz’s side has failed to find the back of the net in last two league losses to the likes of Sociedad and Levante, we will alternatively take Babazorros to keep a clean sheet at 2.10.
