Alaves could not do much in their season opener. A 1-0 defeat on the road against Cadiz in a match they dominated means they can come back stronger to play for a win in their first home game of the season. There are injury worries for Luis Garcia who should have a fully fit squad for his selection.
A defeat at home against Valencia in the season opener also saw Sevilla Loic Bade pick a red card for a last-man foul. The defender was underwhelming in his first game of the season but there should be plenty of other options for head coach Jose Luis Mendilibar ahead of this trip.
