Competition: La Liga
Market: Alaves win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
With the chance to make a return to winning ways and move within touching distance of the top half, Alaves will welcome relegation scrappers Leganes to the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Alaves may have suffered back-to-back defeats against Mallorca and title contenders Real Madrid heading into December, there is no doubt that Head Coach Asier Garitano will be glad to make a return to home soil. Led by former West Ham and Arsenal misfit Lucas Perez who has now bagged eight La Liga goals in his last 10 appearances, Babazorros El Glorioso have lost just one of their last five matches in front of their own supporters, with that sole defeat coming against Los Blancos. Winning three of those five appearances and snatching points off of Atletico on that run, Alaves should be confident of making a return to winning ways on Friday.
As for the visitors, while Leganes may have shocked many to snatch a dramatic 3-2 win over Celta Vigo last weekend, Javier Aguirre’s men still find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. Only managing to scrape a pair of victories in their 16 La Liga matchups nearing closer to Christmas, Los Pepineros are still sat five points adrift of safety and have continued to struggle on the road. Losing four of their last five matches away from the Estadio Municipal de Butarque, Leganes are yet to record a single victory on the road since opening the new campaign and Friday’s trip to Alaves could prove to be yet another long night’s work for the relegation scrappers.
Bet: Alaves 6/4 to beat Leganes in Friday’s La Liga showdown @ Bet 365
