Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Deportivo Alaves and Granada go head to head at Estadio Mendizorrotza in the opening match of the La Liga round 14. The Basques have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Almeria at home, while losing to both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona on the road. Alaves are eager to record their fourth home win of the season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. All Abdel Abqar, Aleksandar Sedlar, and Giuliano Simeone are out of contention with injuries, while Carlos Benavidez is a major doubt.
Los Granadinos, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels this term, with the team collecting only one point in total on the road and that is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Alaves. Bryan Zaragoza is banned for the match, while Raul Torrente, Jesus Vallejo, Miguel Angel Rubio, and Raul Fernandez remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Team (Alaves):
Alaves is a Spanish football club located in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Alava. The club were founded in 1921 and they play their home games at Estadio Mendizorrotza. The capacity of the stadium is 19,840 and it has to be noted that it is the third oldest stadium in Spanish football. After spending several years in the Spanish Segunda Division, los Babazorros returned to the top flight in 2016.
The color of Alaves’ home kit is blue and white and the club’s local rivals are fellow Basque sides Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Osasuna and Eibar. Alaves made it to the UEFA CUP final in 2001, but they were beaten by Liverpool 5-4 in a thrilling football clash. Anyhow, that is still regarded as the club’s biggest success. Los Babazorros booked their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on four occasions and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy.
