Valencia vs Deportivo Alaves Match Preview
A lot could have been different if Dani Parejo converted the 25’ penalty but Valencia saw a convincing 0-3 home loss to Ajax in Champions League and now host Deportivo Alaves looking to bounce back to their streak – desperate for points to keep track of the top of the table.
Los Che have bagged wins at both Chelsea (0-1) and Bilbao (0-1) on their last two trips but their performances in front of the home fans could be more worrying, as they saw troubles at the back and conceded four goals as they held Leganes (1-1) and Getafe (3-3) to draws in front of the home fans.
Alaves have struggled to score goals and this was obvious through most part of September. Still, they’ve now ended a streak of four games without a win and beat Mallorca (2-0), which feels like a great boost to their confidence as they travel to Mestalla on Saturday evening.
Babazorros netted two goals in the final 15 minutes at Mendizorroza, as Lucas Perez converted a penalty and Joselu added one, and will surely have to look to build on it. Still, causing an upset at Mestalla should prove a lot more of a challenge and we don’t see them up to the task.
We will thus rather back Valencia to secure the points and bounce from their mid-week disappointment, going for a Home win at 11/20 with bet365 – which has been rated buying money for old rope by many in the know already.
We’ve seldom seen Valencia really keeping it together at the back this term but we now hope to see them do so, in an attempt to capitalize on the rivals’ goalscoring woes. We’ll thus back them to keep a clean sheet on the day, which comes at 5/6 with Ladbrokes.
