Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
A game between Malaga and Alaves will bring down the curtain on Sunday’s program in La Liga 2 round 21. Los Boquerones are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the penultimate place in the standings. The Andalusians are eager to put an end to their three-match winless run, but they face a difficult task in the clash against the promotion-chasing Basques. All Unai Bustinza, Haitam Abaida, Andres Caro, Diego Murillo, Moussa Diarra, and Victor Olmo have been struggling with injuries of late.
Meanwhile, Alaves suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. El Glorioso are eager to regain their spot in top two, and we do not believe that they will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Senegal international Mamadou Sylla is banned for the match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the Basque outfit.
Highlighted Player (Álex Gallar):
Alex Gallar is a Spanish footballer, who plays for Huesca in La Liga. Alex Gallar’s main position is left winger, but he is used as both right winger and left midfielder as well. Born in Terrasa (Spain) on March 19, 1992, Alex Gallar began his youth career at his hometown club Terrasa, but in 2010 he moved to Mallorca youth academy.
Speaking of his senior career, Alex Gallar played for Terrassa, Mallorca B, Murcia B, Rubi, Cornella, Hercules and Cultural Leonesa before joining Huesca in 2017. Gallar quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Huesca and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 24 appearances for the El Alcoraz outfit in the 2017/2018 Segunda Division campaign.
The Spanish winger helped Huesca secure promotion to La Liga, with the player making his debut in the Spanish elite division in a 2-1 away win over Eibar. Alex Gallar’s contract with Huesca should expire on June 30, 2020.
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.
