Espanyol – Alaves Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (08.04.2017)


Prediction for Espanyol – Alaves

Both teams to score / NO @ 1.68

A striking match on this day of Saturday is the one held by Espanyol and Alavés for a new date of the Santander League.


In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams can neutralize and alternate the ball domain. For this reason and considering that the “parakeets” have improved their numbers in their stadium, we advise you to play a few euros to the pure tie. Remember that the Pellegrino squad knows how to stand as a visitor thanks to their tactical order.

Take into account that Espanyol lost 2-0 against Athletic Bilbao in the new San Mamés, cutting a streak of 3 matches without losing in the competition. These days, he has 43 points in the table, his goal being to close the tournament in the best possible way, as the Catalans do not fight for the decline or qualify for a European competition.

On the other hand do not forget that the picture “parakeet” has added diverse results in its field, product of 7 triumphs, 5 equalities and 3 falls in total (27 goals scored and 19 ceded on its fence). He has won 4 of his last 5 appearances at home, registering 3 in a row (3-0 to Osasuna, 4-3 to Las Palmas and 2-1 to Betis).


Continuing with the analysis you must know that Alavés lost 0-1 to Osasuna unexpectedly as a local, remaining with 40 points in the general table. He has added 2 losses in a row, cutting a 2-game winning streak. The team does not fight for the decline nor to classify the Europa League, being their goal to set their best level for the final copera against Barcelona.

To finish we tell you that the visit has added 6 wins, 3 equal and 6 drops in total, proving to be an uncomfortable rival in this condition. Coming from losing 2-1 to Granada, to beat 1-2 to Malaga and to fall 3-0 against Real Madrid (fall 1-0 partial with lack of 10 minutes for the end).

Against this background I play for equality because of the following reasons: First because Espanyol is a very talented and interesting team, despite having lost to Athletic Bilbao a few days ago. Therefore, you are expected to try forward your lines when necessary. Second because the “parakeets” have added 4 victories in their last 5 presentations at home. Of course, the team suffered to beat Las Palmas and Betis, after winning 4-3 and 2-1 over the final. And third because Alavés is a combative and tactical squad thanks to the work of coach Pellegrino, standing out for adding several points in complicated fields. Faced with this reality and thus the visit has lost 3-0 against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu, we believe that the match can finish without goals or 1-1 after the final whistle.
