Alaves vs Las Palmas Preview

 

Alaves vs Las Palmas

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Mendizorroza

Date: 8th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This is a clash between two basement sides who will be looking to build on their recent wins and see if they can build some momentum before the new year.

Home advantage could help Alaves as they look to get their season back on track.

They did great over the past few seasons with Mauricio Pellegrino leading them to the Copa del Rey final last season.

However, he left them for greener pastures in the Premier League and they have suffered badly in his absence.

They have already fired two managers this season; however they could be third time lucky with Abelardo who did a good job at Sporting Gijon.

His attacking brand of football looks like it will bring out the best in the Basque side that has looked toothless for much of this season.

In his first game, they came from behind to win 3-2 and that should boost their confidence ahead of this tie.

Las Palmas on the other hand are in need of a manager that can help them patch their leaky defence.

Paco Ayestaran became the second manager that has failed to do so this season and was fired last week.

Interim manager, Paquito Ortiz  did a good job in his first game as he led the club to a win over Real Betis.

Las Palmas have the worst defensive record in the division with 2.29 goals conceded per game so far.

They have also lost 12 of their last 14 away games which should get Alaves attackers licking their lips.

Their last three away meetings with Alaves have ended in draws.
