Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After eliminating Leganes in the Copa del Rey, Sevilla will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when take on at Deportivo Alaves on Tuesday evening. Los Sevillanos suffered a 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in their last league match, but bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek fixture. Escudero, Fernandez, and Vaclik remain in the recovery room, but Julen Lopetegui can count on key players for the Alaves game.
The Basques, on the other hand, suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Almeria in the Spanish Cup last 32, but it has to be noted that several first-team regulars were rested at the weekend. Alaves have been struggling at the back in all competitions of late, and seeing that Sevilla are eager to regain their spot in top four, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. Ely is injured for the hosts, while Perez should recover in time to face los Sevillanos.
