Deportivo Alavés vs Granada betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

These two have met seven times since 2016 with six of these encounters producing home wins, including 2-1 to Granada in December. However, el Graná have never won a top-flight trip to Mendizorrotza.

Under 2.5 goals is 8/13.

Draw and under 2.5 goals is 11/4.

Joselu has scored 57% of Alavés goals this season. He is 10/3 to break the deadlock and 6/5 to add to his tally.

Match preview

A huge relegation six-pointer as two of La Liga's bottom four go head-to-head.

Realistically, with just ten games to go, three of six teams will be relegated to the Segunda División and two of the leading candidates meet in Vitoria-Gasteiz.

Of the two, Deportivo Alavés are currently in the relegation zone as their terrible form continues.

Last weekend, el Glorioso were beaten 1-0 by Basque rivals Real Sociedad at Anoeta.

So, José Luis Mendilibar has now won just one of ten matches in charge and that is Alavés' only victory once since 6 November.

Three points and two places better off is where one will find Granada who are hovering just above that dreaded dotted line.

El Graná sacked Robert Moreno at the start of this month with B-team coach Rubén Torrecilla tasked with keeping his club in La Liga.

However, he didn't enjoy a dream start last weekend with Elche claiming a 1-0 victory at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes.

So, Granada have taken just one point from the last 24 available and are winless in ten overall, dating back to 22 December when they beat Atlético.

Thus, the importance of this fixture cannot be overstated, so will either claim three huge points at Mendizorrotza?

Deportivo Alavés team news

Goalscoring continues to be Alavés' problem.

They're the lowest scorers in La Liga with just 21 with Joselu accounting for 12 of these.

He needs support from other attack-minded players such as Édgar Méndez, Luis Rioja, Jason or Facundo Pellistri.

Granada team news

For his first game in charge, Rubén Torrecilla switched to a back three so it'll be interesting to see if he sticks with this.

20 year old Raúl Torrente was the beneficiary of this, joining Germán Sánchez and Domingos Duarte at the back.

This system also allows for two strikers; it was Luis Suárez and Myrto Uzuni last week but Carlos Bacca or Jorge Molina could come in.
