Deportivo Alaves host Atletico Madrid
Deportivo Alaves host Atletico Madrid at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in a match from the 11th round of the Spanish La Liga. It’s time to look up at this fixture in our La Liga predictions.
For Deportivo Alaves the start of the season is nothing special. Right now the team is 14th in La Liga’s standings with 11 points won so far. The club’s record in the league at the moment looks like this: three wins, two draws and five losses.
On Friday Deportivo Alaves visited Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica, suffering a 1-4 loss against the Yellow Submarine. Asier Garitano’s boys were far from their best levels, which is obvious by the result in the game. Lucas Perez scored for the visitors, but Villarreal dominated and scored four times.
What about Atletico Madrid?
Los Colchoneros are currently third in La Liga with 19 points won so far, being on par with the leader Barcelona, but also having one game more compared to the Catalans.
On Saturday Atletico Madrid stopped their unpleasant run of three consecutive draws in La Liga, beating Athletic Bilbao with 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano. Saul opened the score for Los Colchoneros in the first half, while after the break Alvaro Morata doubled his team’s lead after an assist from Angel Correa. For Correa it was a second assist in the game. In this match the manager Diego Simeone put Diego Costa on the bench, while Joao Felix remains sidelined with an injury.
What’s still concerning is that Atletico Madrid have scored just 10 goals in 10 matches played so far. They need to raise their game in attack, if they want to win the title.
Thease are our La Liga predictions for the game between Deportivo Alaves and Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. For Atletico it would be important to record a second consecutive win in the league, but Alaves won’t give up that easy.
