Our football match prediction:
Celta Vigo coach Eduardo Berizzo rested his first-team regulars in Sunday’s football match against Athletic Bilbao and, as expected, the Lions picked up all three points from the match. The Basques are determined to book their place in the Europa League and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football game against Deportivo Alaves. Raul Garcia scored a brace in the 3-0 victory over Celta Vigo and we predict that the former Atletico Madrid man is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Alaves did well to beat Real Betis in Seville in their last league match, but seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we are tempted to put our money on Ernesto Valverde’s troops, who are eager to secure a top-six finish. Athletic Bilbao failed to score in last three meetings with Alaves, but they are likely to put an end to the negative trend.
