Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After surviving Huesca in their last league match, Alaves will look to climb to automatic promotion berth when they face Andorra on Monday evening. The Basques have found their form of late, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-two finish. Defender Nikola Maras is out for the rest of the season with a meniscus problem, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Andorra, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table with slim playoffs chances, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Vitoria. In the first half of the season Alaves defeated Andorra thanks to Luis Rioja’s goal, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
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.
