It’s the second leg of Copa del Rey between these two teams. Alaves has a slight advantage as they scored twice at Riazor, but left La Coruna with bitter taste in their mouth after leading by 2 at hall time but only snatching a draw at the end. At the weekend both teams played an away match in La liga, Alaves got a point at Bilbao (0 : 0), while Deportivo drew in Barcelona, against Espanyol (1 : 1). Alaves has a pretty solid defense, but the games at Mames could end with couple of goals. Deportivo played well in Barcelona, had couple of chances, hit the bar from a long distance shot, before they took the lead. At the end they were lucky to take a point after unbelievable miss from Espanyol in the last seconds of the game. The first match in Alaves this season in La Liga the score was 0 : 0 but Deportivo was close to a win, abut woodwork saved the hosts. I was a decent match with couple of chances, but both teams were satisfied with a draw, which will not be the case tonight. Deportivo must score and they will attack. They could start a little more carefully but they can't afford to lose time, especially if we consider their problems in defence and a great chance of conceding. Alaves is expected to rotate a little bit, Camarasa, Deyerson and Ibai will probably start on the bench, but we saw in La Coruna that they are dangerous for the opposition goal even without their strongest forwards. It is a great opportunity for both teams, so whoever will play they will give their best and a quick goal could really make this game a great contest. As an unbiased spectator I hope for an early lead from the guest which would force the home team to open up and could turn in to entertaining match. It will be a close game and a draw is a possibility so I think Both teams to score is the obvious bet here.
