Competition: La Liga
Market: CD Alaves win
Odds: 3/1 @ Bet 365
Argueably La Liga’s surprise package this season, high-flyers Alaves will travel to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Friday night.
Starting with former Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino and his Leganes side, while a late charge up the La Liga table may have seen Friday’s hosts secure their top-tier status, Los Pepineros have been drastically short of form. Now failing to win any of their last four matches at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque this season, Leganes have now slipped into the relegation zone. Slumping to a very disappointing 3-1 loss to lower league Alcorcon prior to the international break, they have also now failed to win any of their last seven outings.
As for the visitors, few could have expected the eye-catching rise of Alaves so far this season. Picking up a 2-1 win over Huesca prior to the international break, Friday’s visitors have now climbed into the Champions League positions and also hold a three point buffer over defending champions Real Madrid. With Abelardo Fernández’s side now losing just one of their last seven matches, they will be looking for top scorer Jony to carry on his impressive goalscoring run. The 27-year-old scored two in his last two and has been Alaves’ standout performer this year.
Bet: CD Alaves 3/1 to beat Leganes in Friday’s La Liga matchup @ Bet 365
