Alavés vs Formentera – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the 1st leg match, Alavés managed to gain an important advantage in the tie, winning 3-1 at the Sant Francesc Xavier.
For the 2nd leg match, Formentera will have to score more goals if they want to advance onto the next stage, which means they will have to adopt a more attacking approach.
This way, I expect a match with some goals, namely in the first half, a period that I expect to be more open with Formentera trying to score early,
in order to shorten their disadvantage and Alavés exploring the spaces given by their opponent.
