Alaves vs Espanyol by DrVonKlaps

Normally, I don't bet on Cup matches, but today I want to make an exception. Why?
At first, Cup matches are sometimes ideal if someone wants to bet on the underdog, which in our case is the second league team. Lower league teams often have an extra motive to play against higher division teams. And the home ground of Deportivo Alaves in Vittoria is expected to be crowded and motivated.
Secondly, and most importantly, Espanyol has to wory about next Sunday's derby match against City rivals FC Barcelona. Understandably a "special circumstances" match. The news are that the today's match Espanyol squad will be missing some important players in order to be 100% ready for the Barcelona Derby. The today's line up will have some players from the "reserves" and the mind will be possibly at the derby.
Third, not to forget, there is a second leg, so there is a second chance if things go wrong for the favourites.
For these reasons I will put my stake on Deportivo Alaves, 1(0,0) Asian Handicap.
I will avoid to bet on a "pure" home win, because when there is a second leg, the winning motive is slightly lower.
I prefer to pick the 0,0 asian handicap because it has slightly higher odd than 1 draw no bet.
Good luck to your choice.
