Athletic Club vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction 7 January 2018

Tournament: Spanish Primera
Location: San Mames Barria Stadium
Match date: 07.01.2018 at 17:30

On January 7 2018 at 17:30 in the 18th regular game of the Spanish Primera Division at the San Mames Barria Stadium in Bilbao the local Athletic are playing against Deportivo Alaves.

Athletic Bilbao haven’t been this poor for a very long time already. The Basks finished the first half of the championship in the second half of the table as they only gained 21 points in their 17 matches played. These results only leave them on the 12th place in the standings. Anyway, in the latest match Athletic managed to outplay Betis 0:2 and it prolonged their lossless series to make it five games long in the national championship already.

As for Alaves, they experience the syndrome of the second season this year. They have already played 17 games and only won five times and lost 12 times. As a result, they are one of the outsiders of the league with 13:25 goal difference. They actually only outpace the team in the relegation zone due to a better goal difference. Besides, the victory against Malaga in the latest match was the third one in the latest four games.

The teams mostly played against each other in their friendly games and only played official matches against each other in the previous season. The results of those two games finished with rather unexpected results as the teams drew once and Alaves won 1:0 after that. At the moment the teams are almost of the same level and still we think that Athletic are the favorites of the upcoming match.
