Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
The away win at Levante prior to the international break provided the light at the end of the tunnel for Deportivo Alaves, but they instantly returned to the old habits last weekend when they could not prevent the home failure to Real Sociedad (0-2).
Bouncing back once again will be quite a serious challenge for them this Saturday as Babazorros have to travel to Sevilla to tackle one of the strongest attacking sides in the competition.
Beticos have indeed been able to score loads as of late since they notched the impressive tally of 11 goals in three previous La Liga ties.
Such an outstanding attacking form has, however, brought them only one win during the process as they allowed as many as ten in last two outings with Real Sociedad and Valencia.
Luckily for Quique Setien, the clash with Alaves should give his defensive line a break since the visitors have only bagged no more than three goals so far in the season.
The former Albanian national team head coach Giovanni De Biasi arrived as a salvation after Alaves’ poor kick off to the new Primera Division campaign.
The mentioned win at Levante remains the highlight of his reign at Estadio de Mendizorroza and he will obviously have a mountain to climb in order to save his new team in the elite after they suffered seven losses in eight matches.
Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves: Head to head
Deportivo Alaves came on top in both of last term’s encounters and the visit to Estadio Benito Villamarin will revoke pleasant memories for them after netting four goals here in late-April this year.
The overall head to head stats reveal the teams are all tied at six wins each ahead of their 15th H2H encounter.
Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves: Prediction
Beticos have to be considered as massive favourites here and we expect the likes of Antonio Sanabria and Sergio Leon to have plenty of room to deliver in front of Alaves’ goal on Saturday.
Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves: Bets
Real Betis to win is a banker bet at the odds of 1.57.
You can have Antonio Sanabria to score anytime at the odds of 2.10.
