Alaves welcome the visitors Sevilla in the Spanish La Liga – Round 14. The match will be held on Sunday, December 2nd at the Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Alaves’ fairy tale has to eventually end. The hosts conceded in the last two matches in three, but all the losses were away. At home, however, they won Real and Espanyol. The fact is that the guests currently find themselves in the Champions League zone, but their initial goal was to keep their place in the Primeira. The team play the Atletico-style football, and this yields results as for now. The very powerful midfield players make a big difference. Also, there are no positional attacks in the play, Alaves prefer standards. The head coach Abelardo calls the team’s present form a miracle and keeps on working efficiently.

Sevilla experience something similar. We doubt if the guests ever saw themselves sitting first in the table after 13 rounds; and it matters less if this is about the slowdown of Barcelona or Real. It’s true to say that the White and Reds are extremely good on their soil, but they often fail to win away. In their five outings, they won only once, that win being yet in the Europa League match. In the previous campaign, Sevilla also failed to win the opponent at the Estadio Mendizorrotza, so we are not sure if they break this tradition this time.
Some may find Alaves’ play quite primitive and boring. And it really is. But who cares if the team keep up thriving, having no stars in their squad and being just 17th in the Primeira by the club investments. Every task matters. This is not Real. Another durability test. Real have been defeated, and Sevilla are yet to reel from the Europa League match in Belgium. Alaves are supposed to get at least one point in the coming encounter.
Prediction for the match: Alaves to win or Draw.
