Alaves vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Sunday is the one that will dispute Alavés and Villarreal for a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams are even in many aspects of the game. It paints to be a tactical duel and fought in the midfield, thanks to the combative style of the local and to the hierarchy of the Yellow Submarine in this condition. For this reason, we advise you to play a few euros to the pure draw.
Take into account that Alavés lost 1-0 to Espanyol as a visitor and added his third consecutive defeat in the competition. He has stayed with 40 points in the table, fighting only to improve for the final copera against Barcelona. It is a complicated team to overcome despite this negative streak.
On the other hand, do not forget that the local team has mixed results in its stadium, product of 4 wins, 7 equal and 4 falls in total (13 goals scored and 19 conceded on their fence). He comes from losing 0-1 to Osasuna, cutting a 3-game winning streak without losing to his people (2-1 victory against Valencia, 1-1 draw against Sevilla and 1-0 victory against Real Sociedad).
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Villarreal is motivated to this duel after winning 3-1 to Athletic Bilbao and adding 54 points in the general table. The team has added 2 victories in a row, cutting a streak of 2 consecutive defeats, being their objective to be able to classify of direct way the next Europa League.
To finish we tell you that the “Yellow Submarine” has won 6 victories, 6 equal and 3 falls as a visitor, managing to score 15 goals and concede only 8 in his fence (great defensive solidity in this condition). He has won 4 of his last 5 outings, losing only 1-0 against Las Palmas. He then beat Betis 0-1 in Benito Villamarín.
After all this I play for equality because of the following reasons: First because the two teams can be neutralized throughout the 90 minutes of play to be tactical by nature. Therefore, it is not surprising that they are able to alternate the ball domain and goal situations. Second because Alavés is a combative group by nature, despite having conceded points in his stadium. And third because Villarreal knows how to stand as a visitor thanks to the talent of their players and the collective work of coach Marcelino (4 wins in his last 5 outings ligueras). Faced with this reality and knowing the process paints to be rough from the initial pitazo, we believe that it can finish 0-0 or 1-1 after the final whistle.
