Villarreal vs Deportivo Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).
The 4-0 loss on the road against Barcelona broke Villarreal’s unbeaten streak in the league. However, the loss was still expected and Unai Emery is capable to pull his team back into the campaign from that massive loss.
More than abundant time to make a comeback, they will host one of the weaker sides in the mix. Alaves has made it clear by finishing at the 16th spot last season in La Liga. Meanwhile, Villarreal was at the fifth spot in the table, having a 21-point lead in that season over the visitors.
Alaves are yet to find their first win in the league this season. They started with a double loss in their schedule this term. And will visit on the back of a goalless draw at home against Getafe in the last league clash.
Villarreal vs Alaves Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has been unbeaten in the recent two meetings.
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Both teams have scored in the past five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-2 away win for Villarreal.
- Only one of their recent ten matches has ended in a draw.
- The guest has won four clashes in their last ten visits.
Villarreal vs Alaves Prediction
Villarreal had taken all six points from both h2h fixtures the last term in the campaign against Alaves. With that form against the traveling side, the host will have a slight edge in the fixture. Besides, the home ground advantage will also back the Yellow Submarines to get back into their unbeaten streak in the campaign this season.
Being winless in the league so far this term, Alaves is not likely to test the home team’s defense in the ninety minutes at Estadio de la Ceramica. They have scored only 2 goals until now in three appearances, but their last five h2h clashes with the host have seen both teams score.
However, the Yellow Submarines are in an excellent start to the season, which will reflect in their game with a weaker team. With their squad strength, Villarreal will probably win at least either half of the fixture in the upcoming match.
Furthermore, the home win in full-time will probably be another suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns from the encounter.
