Alaves vs Malaga – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Alaves vs Malaga predictions and tips:

Alaves to Win

Third versus 19th. While Alaves are fighting for automatic promotion, Malaga are currently stuck in the relegation zone. It’s important to point out that Malaga are six points from safety; and with two matches left to play, they have been relegated from the Segunda Division. In contrast, Alaves are just two points behind league leaders Granada; they can still win the Segunda Division title, or gain automatic promotion back to La Liga. Taking everything into account, we are backing the hosts to take all the points.

Both Teams Will Not Score

Our second Alaves vs Malaga prediction is on the BTTS market. It’s important to point out that previous clashes between these teams have not featured many goals; at least one team blanked in the last three, and eight of the last 11 skirmishes between Alaves and Malaga. In the same vein, both teams managed to score in just three of Alaves’ last 12 matches. Keeping in mind that one team failed to score in eight of Malaga’s last nine games, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.

Under 2.5 Goals

Deportivo Alaves and Malaga have both been involved in a lot of low-scoring games these past few weeks. On one hand, Alaves have seen less than three goals scored in 11 of their last 12 matches. Likewise, all of Malaga’s last five games went below the 2.5 goal margin. Considering eight of the last 11 skirmishes between these teams featured less than three goals, we believe that this will be a low-scoring affair.

Deportivo Alaves played out a 1-1 draw with Albacete Balompi√© last weekend; that was their second consecutive draw, and their third match without a win. Luis Garcia’s boys will look to get back to winning ways as they host Malaga this weekend.

On the other hand, Malaga have enjoyed some fine form these past few weeks. They have four wins in their last six matches, losing just once in that stretch. Sergio Pellicer will hope to oversee his side’s fifth win in seven matches as they make the trip to the Mendizorroza.
