Deportivo Alaves is welcoming Osasuna to Estadio de Mendizorroza in part of round 31 of Spanish LaLiga.
Deportivo has had some good games this season, and they are outside the relegation zone, but they were dismembered in their last game against Celta Vigo. Alaves was an absolute disaster in this match with only 28% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and low 75% of the correct passes. Nothing was working for Alaves in this match and they lost 6-0. Alaves is in 13th place with 35 points, 31 scored goals, and 45 conceded goals. In their last three games since the restart of the season, Alaves has 2 losses and one win, 8 conceded goals, and only 2 scored goals. Alaves has scored only 31 goals this season, while they conceded 45 goals, which is close to being one of the worst defensive teams in LaLiga. Lucas Perez is Alaves’ top goal scorer with 11 goals and 5 assists, while Joselu added 9 goals. Vidal is injured, while Aguirregabiria is still suspended because of the red card. I believe that Alaves is good enough to stay in LaLiga next season as well, but they will need to put the better defense on display for the rest of the season.
Osasuna is still waiting on their first win since the restart, but the good news is that they are high enough in the standings, so they don’t have to worry yet. Osasuna is in 12th place with 35 points, 35 scored goals, and 46 conceded goals. Avilla has scored 9 goals for Osasuna in this game, while Garcia added 6, and Torres has 6 goals and 7 assists. Unfortunately for Osasuna, Avila is injured, alongside Barja, Ibanez, and Roncaglia who will also not be playing in this game. In their last three games, Osasuna has conceded 8 goals and their defense hasn’t been playing well, but neither is their offense because Osasuna scored only 1 goal. All the injuries have left a mark on Osasuna, the mark they can’t seem to shake. In their last match in LaLiga against Valencia on the road, Osasuna has had 45% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 80% of accurate passes. Overall, a decent game for Osasuna, but they still couldn’t go through Valencia’s bad defense despite having some good chances. Osasuna has lost this match 2-0. Osasuna is lucky that all of the teams in the relegation zone are also playing bad soccer at the moment so there is no need to worry just yet, but anything can change in the last 8 games of LaLiga season.
The trends are pretty evenly split in this matchup, and Alaves has lost their last home game against Osasuna. Neither Alaves nor Osasuna is in good form, while Osasuna was a slightly better team in the attacking end. Alaves will look to bounce back from their disaster against Celta, but Osasuna is looking for their first win since the restart. Everything stinks on a draw here.
