Deportivo Alaves faces Eibar
Deportivo Alaves faces Eibar at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in a match from the 23th round of Spanish La Liga. Just as usual we will talk about this in our La Liga predictions for today, let’s get to work.
Deportivo Alaves managed to win just one of their last five matches in La Liga – against Levante, which is the reason why right now the team is 15th in the standings with 24 points. At this moment the club is 6 points ahead of the 18th Leganes and the relegation zone, but if this gap is reduced then they would be starting to worry a little bit more.
Last week Alaves made their 6th draw for the season, but doing it at a very difficult ground to play at – the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Sevilla. Asier Garitano’s boys made their best effort and went home with a point after a 1-1 draw. Joselu opened the score for the visitors, but Sevilla equalised thanks to Lucas Ocampos from a penalty kick.
Eibar are having the same amount of points as Deportivo Alaves – 24, but they are one position beneath them. Eibar can be happy with their performance lately as they lost just one of their last five matches in La Liga – against Valencia at the Mestalla.
Last week Eibar made a second consecutive draw in the league. Mendilibar’s team hosted Real Betis and won a point after a 1-1 at the Estadio de Ipurua. Fabian Orellana scored for Eibar from a penalty kick after just 15 minutes of playing, but the two teams shared the points at the end.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the game between Deportivo Alaves and Eibar at the Mendizorroza on Friday. This match will open the 23th round of the league, so let’s see how it will go.
