Our football match prediction:
Las Palmas are a team with two faces. Los Amarillos have been impressive at their Estadio de Gran Canaria in the 2016/2017 season, but their away record is poor. Quique Setien’s men rolled over Real Betis in their last home game in La Liga, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Athletic Bilbao at San Mames Barria at the weekend. Las Palmas extended their losing run on the road to four games, but it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in the Spanish elite division. Deportivo Alaves, on the other hand, did well to secure the top flight survival and the team’s new goal is to finish the season in top ten. The newcomers, though, failed to score in previous two away games in the national championship and we predict that los Amarillos will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football match.
Highligted Player (David Garcia):
David Garcia is a Spanish player who started his youth career at Maspalomas. After making 65 appearances for Vecindario in lower leagues, he joined Las Palmas in 2003. David Garcia is a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a right back if needed. He was born on 25 February, 1982 and it is more than obvious that he dedicated his football career to Las Palmas. Garcia made his professional debut in September, 2013 in a 2-1 victory at Elche. However, he made no more than seven league appearances for Las Palmas in the 2003/2004 season. David Garcia, though, quickly established himself as a first-team regular and it has to be noted that he played 394 league games for los Amarillos until the 2016/2017 season. He made 37 appearances for Las Palmas in the 2014/2015 Segunda Division campaign, helping the team secure promotion to the Spanish top flight, but he played no more than 19 games for the club in the 2015/2016 Primera Division campaign. His contract with Las Palmas expires on 30 June, 2017.
Highlighted Team (Alaves):
Alaves are 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 colour 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.
