Sevilla vs Alaves Prediction & Betting tips
Partidazo in the fight for a European position in the Santander League between Sevilla and Alavés in the Sánchez Pizjuán. We need more than 55 points per card in the game, with 10 points for the value of the yellow card and 25 for the red card (with a maximum of 35 points for each player).
Sevilla is in 7th position with 43 points to only 1 of the EL posts (although that position right now would give the right to play EL next season) where Valencia and its rival in this match, Alavés. 5th with 44 points in a spectacular season of Abelardo’s team that continues to struggle for the dream of returning to Europe with a fairly limited budget.
Match between direct rivals, we already know that there is usually enough intensity before the importance of getting points. This need is accentuated in both teams that come from defeats at home in important matches. The Sevilla comes from losing to a fairly straight rival for the fight in those positions as is the Valencia and the Alavés has been totally surpassed by the 2nd classified in the league, which won by a forceful 0-4. Now the two teams want to improve the image offered in the most important section of the league and therefore it can be a very intense match.
Sevilla have received 83 yellows and 4 reds in the 29 league games. This generates an average per game of 32 points per card, a good enough average to be our interests. When playing at home this average increases to 33 points per game.
On the part of the Alavés we go something worse but it is not bad either. 72 yellow and 1 red in 29 games leaving us with an average of 26 per game. As a visitor also rises a little point, staying at an average of 27 points per game. This leaves an average between both of 60 points, which would serve to overcome the line that marks us WH.
The referee will be Juan Martínez Munuera, a referee who is good for this card. 4th referee with the highest average of yellow cards, with an average of 5’71 and 0.2 red cards per game. He has refereed 14 league games this season, with 8 in which he has passed the marked line. It is worth noting that he has refereed several times to the 2 teams that have fewer cards left to us per game such as Real Madrid and Barcelona, being involved in 5 of the 6 games that did not manage to beat the line.
In the h2h we see some good data. They have faced each other in 5 games since Alavés returned to first and has surpassed in 4 of them. Also comment that the only game that did not exceed the line was last season, a game on the last day in which none played anything and even then there were 4 cards.
Therefore, match between two direct rivals in the fight to play Europe next season and want to get the victory after suffering major losses so I hope it is a fairly contested and intense match with an arbitrator who does not cost to take a walk the cards to stop the bleeding of fouls in matches like this.
