Our football match prediction:
Deportivo Alaves and Las Palmas face each other at Estadio de Mendizorroza in the relegation six-pointer. Both sides are determined to secure yet another La Liga survival and, no doubt, there will be fireworks when they face each other in the Basque Country. Unlike previous seasons, los Babazorros have been struggling at home ground in the 2017/2018 La Liga campaign and you should bear in mind that they have already suffered six defeats in front of home fans. Los Amarillos, on the other hand, showed character in a victory over Real Betis at the weekend and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence. Las Palmas are eager to escape the relegation zone and we predict the visitors will leave their hearts on the field in Friday’s football game against Deportivo Alaves. Los Amarillos are undefeated in previous four meetings with los Babazorros in the Spanish top flight and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered.
