Alaves vs Malaga Preview

 

Alaves vs Malaga

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Mendizorroza

Date: 21st December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT

Both Alaves and Malaga would not have imagined that their season being this bad at the beginning of the campaign judging by last season’s performance.

However, it is a different story now and with this game being their last match of the year, they will each be hoping to end the year on a high note.

Alaves seems to be having the worse season among the two.

They have a 75% loss rate at home in the league – a shocking statistics judging by how impressive they were last season when they even reached the final of the Copa del Rey.

Defensively, they remain generous and it doesn’t look like it will get better with their new manager as he tends to prefer an open attacking approach to the game.

In their six home losses this season, they have conceded two or more goals and have conceded an overall average of 1.63 goals per home game which is the worst record in the division.

Malaga will be glad to be playing Alaves at this time with their host having defensive issues.

Although they lost their last game at home 2-0 to Real Betis, they seem to be very good in the final third.

They netted two goals in each of their last two away matches – what is more impressive is that these games were against Real Madrid and Real Sociedad and they managed to win in Sociedad.

That should inspire them to go for the win in this game.

This game is taking place between the team with the worst home record and the team with the worst away record in La Liga so this makes for an interesting tie.

Bookmakers make Alaves early favourites to win this game.
