Alaves vs Betis: prediction for the La Liga fixture
In the previous season Alaves got off to a good start and managed to create a solid handicap, which helped them to avoid relegation at the end of the season. But team's fate was decided only in the last round.
Team prepared for the new season during the summer and strengthened the squad.
After seven rounds of La Liga The Glorious Ones have one victory and six defeats, so now team is at 19th spot in the standings with three points. Team has a terrible offensive line, so far only two goals were scored.
On October 8, Babazorros played a friendly match against Osasuna and suffered a 1:2 defeat.
Lejeune and Mendez are unlikely to play against Betis.
In the previous season Betis put up an impressive display and earned the Europa League spot, to delight of their fans. After two matches at the group stage of the secondary European club competition White-Greens have two victories - over Celtic (4:3) and Ferencvaros (3:1). Those results brought the team into the second spot in the group standings.
In eight rounds of La Liga Beticos recorded three victories and three draws, which brought them 12 points and a 10th spot in the league standings.
After two consecutive victories over Osasuna (3:1) and Getafe (2:0) team from Seville failed to put up a fight against Villarreal (0:2) on an away game. Team's offensive line is looking weak and inconsistent, they scored only 11 goals so far.
Ruiz and Sabaly are unavailable for today game.
This bet won in 3 out of 6 most recent matches of the visitors
2 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches ended as draws
In 3 out of 5 most recent matches of the visitors goals were scored in both halves
This bet won in 2 out of 4 most recent matches of the hosts
It is hard to expect a success from the hosts, especially in long time. Team is looking dreadful right now and, as a result, they are at the bottom of the table. Visitors are looking well, but sometimes they are losing focus, it is not so good for the member of La Liga Top-10. We are expecting an offensive performance from both teams with a number of goals.
Our prediction - both teams to score
We are not expecting a sensation, but we are also not expecting a victory from the visitors. Alaves managed to beat the current champion, so they should be able to snatch a point from Betis, especially at home.
Our second bet is on a draw
