Alaves stepped back into action with a bit of renewed hope of survival in La Liga after picking up a win on the weekend.

It would be a massive week for them if they could double up with three points at home against Villarreal.

But that is a tough task with the visitors having produced four wins in their last five league games as they look to try and secure fifth place.

Alaves Preview – Can Always produce something special?

There was a 1-0 home win for Alaves on the weekend in La Liga against Huesca.

That was a massively important result for Alaves as they drew level on points with Huesca and Valladolid who were outside of the drop zone.

So now it is only goal difference that is keeping Alaves in the drop zone.

Anything out of this tough home game would be a massive boost to their survival hopes.

But wins have been hard to come by for Alaves.

That victory over Huesca on the weekends snapped a run of eight games without one for them (D2 L6).

It has been a W4 D5 L7 home record by Alaves this season in the top flight.

They haven’t been bad defensively at home this season actually. It has been an average of 1.25 goals conceded by them at home.

However, Alaves are only averaging 0.8 goals per home game this season (home and away combined).

So that’s where they have fallen short.

A low-scoring game may be in mind here for football betting, as only 38% of Alaves’ home games have gone above 2.5 goals.

The under 2.5 goals option is at 4/5 odds* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT April 19th).

Our betting prediction:
Villareal/Villareal HT/FT
9/4

Bet at Bet365

(odds recorded 04:35 GMT April 19th)

 

Alaves have hit the back of the net in each of their last three league games.

But they have only opened the scoring in 6 of their 16 home games during this campaign.

Across the last eight rounds of La Liga action, Alaves have amassed five points only, the second-worst of all teams in that spell.

Going back to their lack of scoring, only two teams in la Liga have produced fewer goals than Alaves have done.

In the match outright for La Liga betting, a crucial home win for Alaves is the big underdog option at 11/4* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT April 19th).

 

Villarreal Preview – Will Villarreal pick up all the points?

Villarreal took a convincing 5-1 away win at Levante on the weekend to pick up their fourth win in their last five laugh emga.es

In each of the four victories in that sequence, they scored at least two goals as well.

So that has been a nice bit of form from them lately, keeping them in fifth place in the table. There’s no realistic shot at a top-four finish.

In the match outright for football betting on this game, there is a quote of evens on the away win* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT April 19th).

That doesn’t look unappealing at all.

Villarreal are on a three-match winning streak away from home, scoring at least three goals in each of those.

That has moved them on to a W6 D7 L3 road record for this campaign.

Two of the three away losses that they have suffered were against top-four clubs, so they should handle themselves well in this one.

It is a six-match scoring streak that they are on away from home in the top flight.

Each of their last four games have made it over 2.5 goals as well.

Villarreal are just running in some good form at the moment, which would send us towards them.

Of the away goals that they have produced this season, a massive 74% of them have come in the first half of fixtures.

They have the current fifth-best away record in the division and they are also the joint fourth-top scorers in the division.

They do look as if they have enough to collect a comfortable three points in this one.

Earlier this season they cruised to a 3-1 home success against Alaves.
