Alaves to Win

The home team is almost secure from relegation, but if they want to be completely safe before the last round, they need to get at least a point in this match. With Granada out of contention for a spot in Europe, and with them struggling with many injuries, we can see Alaves getting the win in this game, especially with them doing well in La Liga lately. That being said, Granada did beat Alaves in the last four games they’ve played, but all other things point to an Alaves win.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Our prediction is for this match to have at least three goals, which is based on a few things. First of all, four of the last five h2h matches between Alaves and Granada have gone over 2.5 total goals. Secondly, Granada is only behind Barcelona in goals per game with an average of 2.94 goals per match. In addition to this, Granada has gone over 2.5 total goals in seven of their last eight games, while Alaves has done the same in four of their last eight matches in La Liga.

Joselu to Score at Any Time

Since we expect Alaves to win and we expect to see more than a few goals in the game, our top pick for a goalscorer in this match is Joselu. The Spanish striker is the top scorer for Alaves this season with 10 goals in La Liga and we can see him netting once again in this match, especially since Granada has conceded 15 goals in their last 8 La Liga games.

Alaves vs Granada preview: Can Alaves secure a spot in La Liga for next season?

The home team is almost safe from relegation and even bad results in the last two games shouldn’t put them in any danger, but they are not mathematically safe yet. Meanwhile, Granada is definitely out of the Europa League contention at this point, so let’s check these two teams out in more detail.

Alaves

Although Alaves is basically safe from relegation, at least a point in the upcoming match with Granada would eliminate even the tiny, theoretical chances of getting relegated. The team has been in good form lately, with three wins, three draws, and two losses in the last eight games in La Liga, which saw them move up the table to the 15th spot and four points ahead of the relegation zone. Burqui, Cordoba, Ely, and Lopez are injured and unlikely to play in the next game.

Granada

After a loss in the last round at Real Madrid, Granada is definitely out of contention for a spot in the Europa League for next season. Still, the team had a good year since they’ve reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League and managed a respectable, mid-table finish in La Liga, so they can play the last two games without any pressure. Granada is dealing with some injury problems at the moment as well, with Diaz, Lozano, Kenedy, Milla, Vallejo, and Neva all out of the upcoming duel with Alaves for this reason.
