Our football match prediction:
Estadio de Mendizorroza will host Saturday’s football game between Deportivo Alaves and Real Sociedad. El Glorioso managed to spoil Malaga’s party at Estadio La Rosaleda at the weekend and thanks to the victory they regained their spot in top ten. The newcomers are on the right track to secure the La Liga survival and they are only eight points behind the Europa League berth. Deportivo Alaves recorded three wins in last five league fixtures and seeing that Real Sociedad head into the game following a 2-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. La Real are eager to book their place in the Champions League, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and we are tempted to put our money on Mauricio Pellegrino’s troops. Edgar Mendez came as a substitute and score the winner for Alaves against Malaga and he should be recalled to the starting XI.
