Deportivo Alaves – Real Betis
Deportivo Alaves faces Real Betis in a match from the second round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s take a look at this game at the Estadio de Mendizorroza in our winning soccer predictions.
Deportivo Alaves had the tough task to kick off their season with a visit to Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Abelardo’s boys finished the first half without a goal conceded, but in the second half Barca scored three times and won the game. Still, it was not a bad performance for Alaves, so they have nothing to be ashamed of. They were just beaten by the better team.
Now they will have the chance to record their first win for the new season. Ot at least win their first point. But it won’t be easy against Real Betis.
The Andalusians started the new campaign with a shocking 0-3 defeat against Levante at home. Nobody really expected that Levante could win in such a convincing way at the Estadio Benito Villamarin. Especially with Betis being so good last season and even qualifying for Europa League. But it happened. Roger Marti and Jose Luis Morales scored all of the goals for Levante, while Betis were left with a lot to think about.
Now it’s time for redemption. Eder Sarabia’s boys must fix their mistake and eventualy win their first points for the season. It won’t be easy to do it away from home, but it is what it is.
Deportivo Alaves can’t use the injured Tomas Pina and Rodrigo Ely, while Fernando Pacheco and Alfonso Pedraza are doubful for the game. Alexis and Hector Hernandez are now fit and ready to play.
Real Betis could be without the injured Javi Garcia, while Joaquin and Cristian Tello are now ready to return on the pitch.
