Espanyol vs Alaves: Prediction and Betting Tips
Espanyol all in to secure their first home win
It’s midweek action from the La Liga as Espanyol continue to search for their first win of the 2021/22 season. Moreover, recent history shows that both of these teams must improve quickly. Notably, five of the last seven clubs with no wins from their first six matches got relegated.
While newly promoted Espanyol La Liga 2’s joint best home record, they are yet to secure their first victory at RCDE Stadium. Therefore, coach Vincente Moreno must adjust his team’s tactics and go for the offensive. During their last match against Real Betis, Moren’s team showed great fighting spirit and earned a point after equalizing in the 90th minute.
Espanyol Key points
- Espanyol conceded at least one goal in their last ten matches
- The White and Blues failed to score in six of their last ten games
- Espanyol’s three of the last five games produced under 2.5 goals
Bottom of the table Alaves looking for a resurgence
The last time Alaves didn’t win any of their first five matches, they recovered to finish 14th. That was in season 2017/18, thus their fans might still be hopeful that their team can turn this around. But El Glorioso must improve very soon especially in the offensive third. Coach Javier Calleja’s team scored just one goal in four matches and surely the fans want more goal action.
However, their away record is not encouraging as they lost ten of their last 15 trips. Their only away game this season was in Valencia where they lost 3-0. Strangely though, Alaves had better ball possession in Valencia with 52% and in their last home defeat against Osasuna with 56%. Hence coach Calleja must work on his team’s goals chance creation.
Alaves key points
- Alaves failed to score in five of their last ten matches
- El Glorioso scored just one goal this season
- Alaves’s two of last four games had under two goals
