Las Palmas vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 23rd April 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria.
Las Palmas are one of the most interesting teams in this term of Primera Division for sure.
The hosts have a super strong attacking potential, but they miraculously fail to deliver whenever they play away from Canarian Islands.
Their manager Quique Setien will be happy at least ahead of this weekend because the Canaries are going to play at their Estadio de Grean Canaria where they will host Deportivo Alaves in the 33rd round of the competition.
Las Palmas have been fantastic winning each of their last three home fixtures, but it has been a completely different story on the road.
The Canaries will come in the game after conceding as many as five goals at San Mames Barria to Athletic Club last weekend.
The good news is the return of Setien’s star man Kevin-Prince Boateng who skipped the visit to Basque County last weekend.
Deportivo Alaves have generally had a completely fair campaign as they accomplished their main goal of saving the elite class status long time ago.
The team led by Mauricio Pellegrino will also feature Europa League in the next season which is a major achievement for the league newcomers who are about to play Copa del Rey final with Barcelona in a month.
Las Palmas vs Alaves: Head to head
Even though Deportivo Alaves are popular for their defensive approach in every match, it is interesting to note that 12 of their last 13 meetings with Las Palmas saw the option of both teams netting.
This includes the December’s 1-1 draw at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
Las Palmas vs Alaves: Prediction
Alaves have three losses in last four matches on the road in Primera Division and they will have a very tough task ending the negative series against Las Palmas.
We’ll take the home win at the evens odds as the top betting option, while the tradition suggests a firm BTTS pick priced up at 3/4.
