Alaves sit with 41 points and they are out of relegation threat, thanks to Deportivo’s defeat to Barcelona last Sunday. They are also coming on the back of a defeat, 0-1 at home to Atletico Madrid, but their recent form is not as bad as their Sunday’s hosts.

Malaga vs Alaves: Predictions

Both teams bring inconsistencies to their game and none of them has my faith to win this match outright. So, there are considerable risks to bank on three-way match result markets.

However, there is value in backing both teams to score since Malaga scored at least once in 5 of their last 6 league games and Alaves in 4 of their last 5 away games.
