Las Palmas vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 22 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
The stoppage time on Thursday’s matches pushed Las Palmas into the second division of Spanish football. Levante bagged the match-winner in the third minute of the added time against Malaga, while at just about the same time the Canaries capitulated away against Real Betis at Benito Villamarin.
Paco Jemez and his troops now have a mission impossible to save the top flight status being as many as 13 points below the line with just five games left to play. They could lose the theoretical chances right on Sunday when Deportivo Alaves travel to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Babazorros have been playing hot and cold throughout the campaign. They ended the two-win streak with a disappointing 12 loss to Girona at Estadio de Mendizorroza in mid-week’s round. Before this loss, the team led by Abelardo kept three straight clean sheets against Espanyol, Getafe and Eibar.
Las Palmas vs Deportivo Alaves: Head-to-head
Alaves lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they generally struggled for results in matches at Estadio de Gran Canaria where they won just 3 of 11.
Babazorros came on top when teams met in this term of La Liga at Mendizorroza (2-0).
Prior to that, four straight H2H matches saw both teams on the scoreline.
Las Palmas vs Deportivo Alaves: Prediction
The Canaries head into this off the back of four consecutive losses in La Liga. They scored just once in the process. Given they’ve already practically lost the elite class status, Paco Jemez will have hard times motivating his troops ahead of the last-gasp defeat at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
It all smells on Alaves getting back on the winning track clinching the third victory in four league games here at Estadio de Gran Canaria. Also, since the visitors did not concede a single goal in three straight league matches before the aforementioned defeat to Girona on Thursday, we will alternatively back Abelardo’s squad to keep a clean sheet here at 2.75.
