Urgently seeking to shake off back-to-back disappointments to reignite their European ambitions, Valencia will host Deportivo Alaves at the Estadio de Mestalla on Sunday.

The previous season was nothing short of a disaster, with Valencia finishing in 16th place in the top-flight, just two points above the drop zone, marking their worst league finish since relegation to the Segunda Division back in 1985-86. However, coah Ruben Baraja has managed to steady the ship this term, guiding his side to a respectable total of 47 points from 33 LaLiga gameweeks, which is enough to take the eight position, a mere two points behind Betis in the final European spot. With the final five rounds looming, Los Ches are aware they cannot afford any slip-ups if they wish to avoid a fifth straight season without European football.

Unlike their promoted counterparts Almeria and Granada, who are doomed for relegation, Deportivo Alaves are enjoying their comeback season and it looks like it's only a matter of time before they seal their stay in the Spanish top-flight. Namely, El Glorioso's survival chances have surger following back-to-back stellar performances, stunning Atletico Madrid 2-0 and routinely seeing off Celta de Vigo 3-0 last time out. With a massive 12-point suficit over Cadiz, who si just below the dotted line and face crowned champions Real Madrid on Saturday, Alaves could already be celebrating survival this weekend should they grab a point at Mestalla.

Valencia vs Alaves Betting Tips: VALENCIA TO WIN

After suffering back-to-back defeats, the latest of which came against Barcelona where they gave up a first-half lead to ultimately went down 2-4, Ruben Baraja's side must act urgently to get their top-six hopes back on track. Ahead of the clash with Alaves, there are promising omens for Los Ches could pick up the much-needed three points, as they can proudly boast that they have come out on top in eight out of nine clashes at the Mestalla against Sunday's visitors. 

Additionally, the home advantage has proven to be the primary source of points for Valencia this term, as they have been defeated only once in their last 12 LaLiga matches at their own turf, while also claiming eight out of their total 13 triumphs right in front of their loyal supporters. Despite being on the verge of confirming survival in the Spanish top division, El Glorioso will struggle to get anything out of Sunday's visit, not only due to their troubled H2H history, but also because they have been poor travelers lately, failing to made the back of the net bulge in any of their last four LaLiga away trips, three of which ended in failure. Based on all of this, we are confident that the six-time Spanish champion will halt their two-game losing streak by cruising to a narrow victory at Mestalla.

Real Madrid loanees Rafa Marin and Abdel Abqar are very likely to regain their spots in the back after serving their suspensions in his side's scintillating 3-0 win over Celta de Vigo last week.

On the injury front, 32-year-old Serbian defender Aleksandar Sedlar has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury and is Alaves' only injury, meaning Luis Garcia will have all the key pieces available.
