Reason For Alaves vs Sevilla Predictions

Sevilla have made a strong start to life under new manager Julen Lopetegui, however they were made to rue missed opportunities against Celta Vigo on Matchday 3. The 1-1 draw at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan brought an end to Sevilla’s 100% record, but they’re still sitting handily in 3rd coming into this weekend’s fixture against an Alaves side who are also unbeaten three games into the new La Liga campaign.

This is a big season for Sevilla who are desperate to achieve a top four finish after missing out for the last two years, and overall it’s been a case of so far so good for the Andalusians since Julen Lopetegui took charge of the club during the summer.

Two composed away wins and clean sheets against Espanyol (0-2) and Granada (0-1) marked a fine start to Lopetegui’s tenure considering Sevillistas diffidence on the road last term, and they really should have kept their 100% record in tact at home to Celta Vigo a fortnight ago.

Sevilla dominated Celestes at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and registered 18 shots on goal, but only broke the deadlock nine minutes from time through Franco Vazquez. The volume of chances created arguably warranted a more comfortable lead, but one goal was all they managed and that was cancelled out just a few moments later by Denis Suarez.

The result will have massively frustrated Lopetegui and his side, but on reflection Sevilla have to be content with the seven points which they have on the board.

Sunday’s hosts Alaves have similarly enjoyed a good opening to the season under new management, and it was badly needed after a major drop towards the end of 2018/19.

They won just one and lost six of their final ten La Liga matches last season, a run which saw them fade from the European qualification race into 11th and ultimately spelled the end for then boss Abelardo.

So a win and two draws thus far represents a decent step forward for El Glorioso and boss Asier Garitano, who failed to deliver during his stint at Real Sociedad last season.

Like Sevilla, Alaves have been keeping things extremely tight with two clean sheets secured from their three games, and the only goal they have conceded came last time out in a decent 1-1 draw at Getafe.

With fewer than 2.5 goals netted in the last five meetings between these teams, everything points towards another close, low scoring encounter at Mendizorroza this weekend.

The sides are hard to split with Alaves’ home advantage likely to even things up and both teams will be keen to stay unbeaten. With that in mind, under 2.5 goals is our main tip for this Matchday 4 clash alongside a 1-1 correct score, which is how it’s finished in two of Sevilla’s last three trips to face Alaves in the Basque Country.
