Home advantage may shade the balance

The league records this season between Alaves and Eibar are pretty much level. They have both taken a W6 D6 L10 record. Alaves have scored two goals more than Eibar and have conceded two more than they have done.

The home form that Alaves have recorded this season in the Spanish top flight is W4 D4 L3, so that’s not been a bad return at all from them. They have lost two for their last four home fixtures though, losses happening against Villarreal and Real Madrid.

It is a four-match winless streak at home that they are ticking along on at the moment. Alaves have collected just one win in their last eight fixtures, home and away combined, in La Liga.

The thing which really backs up their chances in this fixture is their form against teams who are starting the weekend 12th or lower in the table. It’s good.

Our betting prediction:
Alaves 1 Goal Margin In

(odds taken 21:14 GMT, Thursday 6th February)

From their nine matches played against teams who are currently 12th or lower, Alaves have taken a W6 D3 record. Considering that Eibar are currently at one place beneath them, and the fact that Alaves took a 2-0 road victory against them at the back end of November, then there is a decent chance that they can stick a win on the board here. All four of their home wins this season, incidentally, have been to nil.

 

Can Eibar avoid defeat?

The away record of Eibar this season is not going to inspire punters to stack them to win. They have taken a W1 D5 L5 record on their league travels.

But then, in their last six league games, home and away combined, they have been beaten just once. That was on a visit to Valencia in their first game back after the winter break in January.

Eibar are in good form at home, recently beating Atletico Madrid there. But they have failed to score a single goal in any of their last three games out on the road.

In fact, on their league travels this season Eibar have scored just 7 goals in their 11 games. Only 36% of Eibar’s road games this season have made it over 2.5 goals.

Of the handful of goals that they have scored on their travels, five of the seven have been in the first half of matches. In the overall head to head Eibar do lead with a W5 D3 L2 record.

They have avoided defeat in their four previous away games at Alaves (W3 D1). They don’t immediately look as if they are going to be far away from playing out a draw, but they look a long way from getting a win.

 

Alaves vs Eibar Betting Advice

This has the look of just being a very tight game. Eibar can be pretty pleased with their recent form, losing just one of their last six home and away. But with just one away win all season, they are worth a pass in the match outright.

 

Key Facts – Alaves vs Eibar Betting Tip

  • Eibar have not scored in any of their last three away games
  • Alaves are unbeaten in 9 games against teams currently 12th or lower
  • Eibar have failed to win 24 of their last 26 away matches

 

Alaves may well be able to sneak this on home soil. They got a good away win against Eibar earlier this season and having won six of nine (D3) games this season against teams currently 12th or lower, there’s the appeal in the home win.
