Villarreal to Win

With Villarreal in such a great form, it’s hard to imagine Alaves getting anything out of this game, despite the fact that they need points badly to help them avoid relegation. Furthermore, Villarreal has won the last three head-to-head matches between these two teams, so we expect this run to continue on Wednesday.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Although Alaves is in the bottom half of the league when it comes to goals scored in their games with 2.32 goals per match, Villarreal is a bit better in this regard with 2.65 goals per match. Also, Villarreal has gone over 2.5 total goals in their last six La Liga games, four of which have been away from home. But the main reason for this prediction is the fact that the last five matches between these teams have gone over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

In addition to the fact that all five previous meetings between Villarreal and Alaves have gone over 2.5 total goals, both teams have scored in all of them as well. So, betting on both teams to score seems like a smart move, despite the fact that this happened in just two of the last five Alaves games.

Alaves vs Villarreal preview: Will Alaves get closer to avoiding relegation or Villarreal to Europa League?

The two teams are in completely different positions at the moment, but this match is crucial for both of them. So, let’s take a closer look at Alaves and Villareal right now:

Alaves

The three points that they got by beating Huesca over the weekend are a true lifeline for Alaves who is still in the relegation zone, but with the same number of points as two teams out of it. So, everything is pretty much open for Alaves and the rest of the season will determine who will get relegated. The win against Huesca was the first one for Alaves after eight matches without a victory. The team is relatively healthy, with only Ely and Abquar injured at the moment.

Villarreal

This team is having a great season since they’ve reached the semi-finals of the Europa League and they are currently 5th in La Liga with seven games to go. In the last five games, Villarreal has won four times, including a convincing 5-1 away win against Levante. So, they are the favourites in this match for a reason. Estupinan and Iborra are the only two players currently on the injury list, so Villarreal will have basically their full team at disposal for this game.
