Mendizorroza has turned into a fortress, ahead of our Alaves vs Deportivo La Coruna preview and football odds, with the hosts’ form at home on an upward trend since the appointment of Abelardo as manager.
Alaves have got unbeaten in their last six consecutive league home games now, with some good sides coming to Vitoria and finding it very tough. Deportivo La Coruna, meanwhile, are struggling in the relegation battle and have been terrible of late, leading to the sacking of Cristobal.
Our Alaves vs Deportivo La Coruna predictions revolve around this home form, which makes backing anything other than a comfortable victory for El Glorioso look unthinkable in our La Liga predictions.
On the road of late, Depor have taken some considerable beatings, with their quality going forward definitely not complimented by a solid defence or much of a plan to frustrate other sides. Due to this, they are staring into the possible abyss of relegation, despite having a decent squad.
Alaves have kept three clean sheets in their last four victories at Mendizorroza, with their organisation and team spirit enough to frustrate the likes of Las Palmas, Malaga and Sevilla. Despite conceding versus Leganes and Celta Vigo, they avoided defeat, with the home fans coming to expect a huge level of determination and commitment from their players.
Winner offer the best odds on the home side to win while keeping a clean sheet, which looks very likely given the away side’s recent form before on their travels and at Riazor. The visitors are winless in their last seven attempts in the league and have been hammered by the likes of Real Sociedad and Real Madrid in recent weeks too.
Cristobal’s sacking and the appointment of a new coach is bound to give the away side something of a boost, but their general poor form should mean that it will take a while for the new era to kick into effect. Not scoring at Anoeta last time out on the road, against one of the league’s leakier defences, tells its own story.
Our Alaves vs Deportivo La Coruna bets back this to be a comfortable win for the hosts, who should be able to take advantage of the fact that Depor concede early in games quite often this campaign. Often, they can be guilty of not switching on from the off and being punished. Given that Alaves are hell-bent on escaping the relegation battle, they will be focused from the very start.
Betfair offer the best odds on El Glorioso to be leading both at the half-time break and the full-time whistle, with Depor to be trying to cling onto their opponents’ coattails throughout. Alaves have been in great form of late, with their aggression and explosive style of play ensuring that they are a nightmare of visiting outfits to handle.
Our Alaves vs Deportivo La Coruna betting tips suggest that the away side should be expecting yet another game without a win in La Liga, with relegation becoming more and more of a reality with each passing week. They need a reaction quickly, but it is unlikely to come at Mendizorroza.
