After their impressive start, Granada have fallen slightly off course and will be desperate to get back on track. They do have the home advantage this Sunday and are taking on an Alaves side that have been not that impressive on the road lately. By the looks of things, prospects are good for Granada this Sunday.

Granada vs Alaves Prediction

Granada were on the road the last match-day and had to bow down to Bilbao to concede a 2-0 defeat. Meanwhile, Alaves were expectedly defeated at home by the 13-time European champions Real Madrid, with a 1-2 scorecard.

This upcoming match-day, consider how desperate Granada would be to record a win. They were extremely impressive in the initial stages of the competition, and have failed to keep their levels constant in the later stages.

However, they do have the home advantage to draw inspiration from. At this venue, the team has lost just twice this campaign, and both of these had come against some very tough teams. They also had a four-game winning run before falling against Real Sociedad.

On top of that, Alaves were winless in 13 of their previous 17 overall fixtures and had one win from their last ten matches on the road. They had also lost six of their former eight road trips and conceded four or more goals in two of their former three away games.

Moreover, the last time these two met, Granada had won 2-1 at home, and the team holds a 100% winning record at this venue in h2h clashes. Also, every single h2h encounter in the last decade has ended in a win for the hosts as well.

Even more reason to back a win for the hosts is, Alaves have conceded the most number of goals so far on the road in La Liga’s current edition.

Taking into account all these stats and observations, expect a win for the hosts, Granada, this Sunday.

However, consider the off-form of Granada at the moment, and their inexperience due to them being a newly-promoted squad. Meanwhile, Alaves have scored two or more goals in three of their former four overall games, while their counterparts conceded twice or more in three of their prior four.

As such, BTTS emerges as a favorite bet this Sunday.
