Deportivo Alaves – Atletico Madrid, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ALAVES - ATLETICO
Alaves were defeated by Villarreal by 1-4 in the last round. Another weak game of Deportivo as a guest. Undoubtedly this is no surprise considering their performance last season. Now they continue at the same pace – they collect points mostly at home, while as a guest they are terrible. Currently they have only taken 1 point in a visit. In this case, Alaves are actually involved in the survival battle and are only 2 points away from the danger zone.
Atletico Madrid played a pretty valuable game against Atletico Bilbao and beat them 2-0. Simeone bet on a very suitable eleven, although Felix, as well as the two main defenders, were absent. In the 2nd half, Atletico relied mostly on crosses and that brought success. As a guest, however, Madrid have a lot of work to do to get positive results.
Expert view : Considering the volatility and fluctuations of the guests in the attack, as well as the strong games of Alaves in front of their fans, we think that the victory for the guests, if any, will be very difficult. They have difficulty away from home because they cannot overcome the strong defenses of their rivals. In addition, Alaves are very well prepared physically, they are aggressive, they are good in areal duels and this will make the time bad for Atletico, which is why we expect them not to lead at half time and our forecast is 1st half – Alaves or Draw 1.54.
Alaves have only allowed 1 goal in the 1st half from their 5 home games so far
Atletico have scored only 1 goal in the 1st half of their 5 away games
