Alaves vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
An entertaining encounter in this day of Sunday is the one that will play Alavés and Villarreal by a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite in this opportunity, since the two sets can be neutralized during many passages of the game by having different football proposals. For this reason and knowing that the local table usually reap results adjusted in its field, we advise you to play a few euros to the pure tie. Remember that the “Yellow Submarine” can stand well at this exit, beyond the thrashing suffered before the Royal Society in Anoeta.
Take into account that Alavés does not arrive well to this duel after losing 1-0 against Celta in Balaídos and to add his third defeat followed in this league boot. The team of Zubeldía is having problems in the elaboration and the moment of marking. Therefore, it is costing you a lot to harvest points in the table.
On the other hand do not forget that the local table has played a game as a local so far, which was negative for his aspirations to lose 0-2 against Barcelona in a clear way. The team is expected to be more incisive in attack and to risk a little more than usual. You need to take advantage of the local factor to score points.
Continuing with the analysis you must know that Villarreal arrives toned to this game after beating 3-1 to Betis like local and to add its first triumph in the championship. The team left behind its first two league losses, showing that it can be competitive despite having lost several players of weight. That yes, it still counts on a technician of experience and good handling like Fran Escribá. Coming from playing against Astana for the Europa League last Thursday ().
To finish we tell you that the “Yellow Submarine” has already played two games as a visitor, reaping negative results for their aspirations. First they lost 1-0 over the hour before Levante, which seemed to end in a tie. Then fell 3-0 in a clear and forceful way against Real Sociedad in Anoeta.
After reviewing the details of this match I play for equality because of the following reasons: First because the two teams are even and can be neutralized during several passages of the game. It paints to be a tactical duel from the initial pitazo, since they will collide two different soccer styles (order vs handling of ball). Second because Alavés is a combative but limited group at the time of creation. Therefore, he is expected to have problems getting to the goal. And third because Villarreal, even though he has lost his first two starts, is still a competitive line-up thanks to the work of coach Fran Escribá. Faced with this reality, we believe that the party can finish without goals or 1-1 after the final whistle.
