Alaves hosts Sevilla in round 19 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 19th at Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)
In January 2021, Alaves changed its head coach, and now this role is played by Abelardo. The ex-player of Barcelona performs well in the coaching field. Alaves is currently 16th in the standings, outranking the relegation zone by only two points. The team has problems in the attack, which often works inertly and does not overload the defensive orders of the opponents. The problems of Alaves lie in the quality of the roster, which does not correspond to the desired status of the middle peasant. Among the most productive players, one may note goalkeeper Pacheco, defender Laguardia, midfielder Battaglia, and forwards Lucas Perez and Joselu (seven goals scored for two).

Sevilla had a good first half of the season. The team advanced to the playoffs of the Champions League and took a position among the leaders in the LaLiga standings. Recently, the club won a ticket to the 1/16 finals of the national cup. Lopetegui's charges are distinguished by good organization and the ability to act pragmatically on the football field. This style of the game led Sevilla to victory in the last Europa League, and the team was in the top three in the Spanish championship. The club works competently in the transfer market, regularly meeting the needs of the coaching staff in new players. In the summer, Sevilla signed contracts with such strong performers as Bono, Suso, Rakitic, Oscar Rodriguez, and Rekik. The leaders of the team show excellent football in the current championship (Kounde, Jesus Navas, Jordan, Ocampos, and En-Nesyri).
Lopetegui's charges gained three victories and tied two times in the last five head-to-head matches against Alaves. The teams consistently demonstrate pragmatic football when they meet on the football pitch. Sevilla looks like a stronger and more organized team compared to its rivals. And the home club does not impress with the performance in the current championship. The Blue-Whites pin great hopes on the arrival of Abelardo on the coaching bridge. We think the upcoming match will be tense and will not please the fans with a large number of goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.75 goals scored
