Deportivo Alaves is welcoming Sevilla to Estadio de Mendizorroza in round 19 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Deportivo has lost 3 of their last 4 games, but there have been a few good things in their game. Deportivo is now in 16th place with 18 points, 16 scored goals, and 23 conceded goals, and they are only 2 points away from the relegation zone. Deportivo also hasn’t won any of their last 3 games in LaLiga, and they got knocked out of the Copa del Rey competition. In their last LaLiga game, Alaves was playing against Cadiz on the road, and they were solid with 61% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 76% of the correct passes. Despite dominating the possession, Alaves has had a terrible game on the defensive end, and they have lost this game 3-1. Alaves has also conceded a red card in this game. Lucas Perez is Deportivo’s best player with 4 goals and 2 assists, while Joselu added 3 goals. Ely is injured, Rodriguez is suspended because of the red card, while Perez is still questionable for this match. Alaves is just an average team, and frankly, they are where they belong, but I do believe they have the quality to stay in LaLiga.
Sevilla was on a great streak in LaLiga and Copa del Rey, which got broken against Atletico Madrid a week ago. In their Copa del Rey game Sevilla was playing against Leganes, and they advanced to the next stage after the extra time. In the said game against Atletico Madrid, Sevilla has had 67% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 12 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and high 90% of the correct passes. Sevilla was dominating and creating chances in this game, but they couldn’t finish any of their chances, and Sevilla has lost this game 2-0. With 30 points, 21 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals, Sevilla is in 6th place, and they are now only 2 points away from the Champions League spot. En-Nesyri is the leading goalscorer for Sevilla with 8 goals, while Ocampos added 3 goals and 4 assists. Escudero, Vaclik, and Fernandez are all still injured for Sevilla. The next five games in LaLiga are on the easier side for Sevilla, and they better stay on the right track because the Champions League starts next week, and Sevilla is hosting Borussia Dortmund. Sevilla is a good team, but they need to find more offensive options because they are struggling with scoring goals.
The trends are slightly on Sevilla’s side in this matchup, but the home team has dominated this series. Alaves is struggling, but so does Sevilla, especially in the attacking end. Alaves has been solid at home so far this season, but I think this game will end in a draw.
