Deportivo Alaves needs to wake up!
Alaves made a very weak start to the season in La Liga. And now they have halved it, their strength is enough for only the 18th position in the standings.
There is nothing strange in this. Given that they have only 4 wins after 21 rounds. As expected, a change of coaching position was made 2 weeks ago .
But the expected change in the results is not observed yet. With 3 losses and 1 draw under Abelardo. Of course, defeats by Real Madrid and Sevilla are neither shameful nor unexpected.
But the tie in Getafe's visit showed some peculiarities of the team. Good game in defense and recording only the 2nd dry net of the season. But also a very weak and idealess game in attack.
Deportivo Alaves do not have any serious personnel problems for this match. And what they can count on is strong protection. There are many questions about their attack.
Real Valladolid is also in the black series!
Valladalid are 16th in La Liga and have one point more than Alaves. Like the hosts, they can not boast of good results since the beginning of the new year.
They started with a victory. But 7 games followed without success. As the last in the series is a home loss to Huesca. Which, however, apart from being unexpected, is also quite undeserved according to what was shown in the match. As well as according to xG data .
Forecast for Alaves - Valladolid
In the first match between these two teams, the 0-2 victory was for Deportivo Alaves. In the last 7 matches between them, Real Valladolid have only 1 victory.
The match itself is for 6 points. And the teams are divided by only 1 point. In addition to the benefits of home and historical statistics, Alaves also have the advantage of improved defensive play.
Valladolid have a certain personnel crisis with absent players. Of which the shortcomings in defense will be especially painful. A victory for Deportivo Alaves then seems to me a good and justified choice already mentioned.
However, I will make an addition to the forecast. Because of which I will naturally reduce the size of the bet itself. In my opinion, Sergio Guardio Guardiola Navarro, if he takes part in this match, is very likely to sign.
This is his third year at Real Valladolid. And there are already 12 hits. Interestingly, however, this season there is only 1 goal scored at 3.99 xG . That is, well below expectations. This, of course, may be the result of a decline in form that we cannot know. Or it could be a lack of luck.
But what is certain is that Sergio Guardiola is involved in a sufficient number of situations. I combine the two probabilities in one prediction.
