Alaves are in the great form. After 5 games without a defeat, they registered 11 points from 3 wins and 2 draws. Last weekend, they managed to beat local rivals Athletic Bilbao with 1:0. Alaves have a solid shot for reaching the 8th position as they collected 51 points so far. The crowd at Mendizorrotza unfortunately saw more conceded than scored goals – 16:20. In 18 home games, Alaves have recorded 6 wins, 8 draws and 4 defeats. In 5 out of last 6 Alaves’ home games, there have been 2 or fewer goals scored.
Celta Vigo were very disappointed at Old Trafford on Thursday, where they were knocked out of UEFA Europa League semi-finals, despite they had an insane chance in the last minute to reach the final. Since Celta were completely focused on European competition, they struggled in La Liga as their manager was forced to rotate, which resulted in 4 consecutive losses. Celta are in the 12th position with only 44 points collected. This season, the guests were beaten 10 times already on the road, while they won 4 and drew also 4 outings. Celta were beaten in 6 out of last 7 La Liga meetings. In the domestic league, Celta have conceded at least two in the last three visits.
The last three meetings between the two sides had under 2.5 goals scored. In Copa del Rey, Alaves knocked Celta out 1:0 on aggregate, while Celta beat Alaves with the same result at Balaidos, so we can expect another low-scoring encounter on Saturday.
