Valencia vs Alavés – La Liga: On the 2nd match of this Saturday of football in Spain, counting towards La Liga’s 29th round
The local side Valencia and the visiting side Alavés will face off in the city of Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium, on the 4th meeting between these two teams on the season,
with the Valencians getting the win in 2 of those previous encounters while Alavés winning the other one.
The team led by Marcelino Garcia Toral is making their best campaign of the last couple of years, almost miraculously, such was the inconsistency of the team in recent years,
even despite the heavy investment made on players over the course of the past couple of years and also on coaching staff, with the team being on the Champions League spots, and probably managing to qualify for that competition, unless things get worse for them meanwhile.
The team is coming off a good period in terms of results, counting with 6 consecutive matches unbeaten, getting 5 wins in that period, only slipping up on their trip to the San Mamés.
As for the Basques, they are making a fantastic final stretch of the season so far, completely turning around their poor start to the season, and being now much closer to reaching their objective of avoiding relegation,
that I believe is just around the corner, since the team has an 11-points advantage over the teams on the relegation zone.
The team is coming off a period of some inconsistency in terms of results, it’s certain, but globally, they are on a positive streak, counting with 4 wins on their last 7 matches, only losing against Real Madrid, Bétis and Real Sociedad.
Valencia vs Alavés – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Following up on the previous meetings between these two sides, that have always ended with “Overs”, I believe that this match will follow that trend, since that,
I should mention that Valencia presents a fantastic offensive record (with 54 goals scored), while Alavés has a less positive defensive record (42 goals conceded), which leads me to believe this will be a match with a goals, namely during the first 45 minutes.
