Deportivo Alaves vs Villarreal B
La Liga 2
Date: Saturday, 26 November 2022
Kick-off at 16:15 UK / 17:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza.
League leaders Alaves will look to add another victory as they will host Villareal B at Estadio Mendizorrotza. Both teams are separated by eight points ahead of this fixture.
The host are in decent form this season. They played against Eibar last time in a goalless draw. They are now on a seven-game unbeaten streak starting in October.
On the other hand, the visitors picked up three crucial points as they edged past Ibiza by 1-0. This victory comes after their 1-0 defeat against Huesca. In the game against Ibiza it was Diego Collado who scored the only goal in the 54th minute of the game.
The main concern for Luis García’s side is that his team are playing aggressive as they have picked up a red card against Racing and Zaragoza. The team will risk losing points if this trend continues.
An important point to note is that the host have lost only once this season. However, three of their last five games have ended in a stalemate.

- This is the first time both teams will go head-to-head.
