Alavés vs Deportivo La Coruña – La Liga : With all their starters available, Alavés comes into this matched on a good moment of form
In the season, accompanied by 2 consecutive victories over Celta de Vigo and Villarreal and only 1 loss on the last 5 matches, precisely against the leaders Barcelona.
However, they have also put up a good performance and were hard to overcome, with Barcelona winning by the minimum margin (2-1).
Alavés is clearly a team in development, that has just come out of the ashes a few rounds ago to the very comfortable position they are on at the moment, despite still being low on the league table,
and a lot of their recent success is due to their improvement at home, where they were the worst team in the league at some point. Now, they are coming off 5 unbeaten matches as hosts, where they’ve won in 4 of them.
Deportivo La Coruña: The arrival of Seedorf didn’t have any impact on his debut against Bétis and I find it hard for the Dutch to take the team out of this situation.
Deportivo is very weak, and they deserve the position they occupy, having the worst defence in the league with a ridiculous number of 52 goals conceded in only 23 rounds.
Away from home, the team has won only 1 of the 11 matches they’ve played and their last win was on December 9th, so it’s hard for me to believe they will get points here today.
Alavés vs Deportivo La Coruña – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite occupying very close positions, Alavés and Deportivo are in completely different moments of form, and they have a considerable difference in terms of points between them.
It doesn’t matter that Alavés doesn’t have a great team or something like that.
They have become a reliable club at home recently and they have already overcome some tough tests so far,
but they know that the best thing to do is taking advantage of their good moment of form and winning the matches against the direct contenders like this one to eliminate any risk of relegation there might be as soon as possible and crown their campaign of breakthrough.
