Villarreal vs Alaves (By: Jshoot)
La Liga - Villareal vs Deportivo Alaves.
After being unbeaten in 5 games in a row (4 wins & 1 draw), Villareal suffered defeat an away game against Real Betis in their previous La Liga match last week. But that game Villareal played with 10 men which they received the red card in 1st half. It wasn't huge defeat (2-1) but losing 3 points when Real Madrid didn't win last week definitely a blow for the Yellow Submarine to take over the 4th spot. Deportivo Alaves on the other hand last week got a big result against Celta Vigo (2-1 victory). They even had 2-0 lead until 90th min. It was a big win for Alaves as before last week they were in a bad form.
However, despite of those results, I fancy Villareal to win at home against Alaves. Alaves has bad form in away games. This season, they have only won twice in away and the rest of their results are lost. Those two wins were against Levante & Girona (much worse team than Villareal). Villareal on the other hand has been good at home, only lost twice (vs Barcelona & Sevilla) and drew twice (vs Espanyol & Deportivo).
Unlike Alaves, Villareal suffered a lot of injuries. But they have been through this season with those absence players (Sansone, Bruno & Semedo) and had no problem at home. They also will be without two of suspended players (Rodri Hernandez & Bonera). Honestly, I don't see Bonera as a massive blow for Villareal, although losing Rodri Hernandez might affect Villareal's performance in midfield. But I still fancy Villareal to win this game and odds of 1.7 is valuable in my opinion.
Note: Villareal defeated Alaves 3-0 away game this season.
Good Luck whoever follows!
