Alaves are a team on the up and can earn some vital points against relegation rivals Malaga.
El Glorioso are already on their third manager of the season but their former defender Albelardo Fernandez seems to be on to a winner, claiming two wins before the weekend’s narrow 1-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid.
That has lifted them to 18th, one place above Thursday’s opponents who actually won on their last trip away, getting the better of Real Sociedad 2-0.
Monday’s 2-0 home defeat to Real Betis killed their momentum and a three day turnaround could hurt Michel’s men, especially with so much travelling involved.
On paper, the home side should get the job done and 21/20 seems a decent price for a team who have traditionally relied on results at the wonderfully-named Mendizorrotza.
However, goals on the road are not a worry for Los Boquerones so if you are feeling ambitious, do not be shy when it comes to the 7/2 for an Alaves win and both to score.
