Alaves vs. FC Sevilla / La Liga – This is a derby in the 14th round because of the fact that Alaves is surprisingly good this season, and Sevilla has benefited from the bad results of the main favourites for the title, so they are currently first on the table. Alaves is in excellent fourth place, with three points less, which means they can reach Sevilla if they defeat them. It can still be said that they are not in the best shape and they have suffered two defeats in the previous three rounds, while Sevilla is four rounds without defeat, and they have only lost one match in Europa League on Thursday. Alaves has defeated Sevilla with 1-0 at home last season.
Alaves vs. FC Sevilla begins 02.12.2018 at 20:45 CET
Alaves is in small decline of form and they have lost two times as guests against rivals that do not belong among the strongest teams. They had a lead against Eibar with 1-0, but they lost after a goals received in the finish of the match, while they in the last round lost to Leganes with 1-0. They did not lose any matches on their field, and their effect is four wins, with two draws. Alaves has received four goals and scored twice as many, which makes them optimistic before this clash with the leading team.
They have already defeated Real in front of their supporters, and two rounds ago they have overcome Huesca with 2-1. Pacheco has returned on the goal against Leganes, and Maripan was out of action. Borja Baston ended up on the bench, while Sobrino played in attack. Now Maripan returns to the center-back, while Ely and Pina are out of action due to injury.
Probable lineups Alaves: Pacheco – X.Navarro, Maripan, Laguerdia, R.Duarte – Ibai Gomez, Manu Garcia, Brasanac, Jony – Calleri, Sobrino
Sevilla has been the leader on the table since the last round and it is clear that they can be overwhelmed by this fact. This is not a particularly big advantage, but they are still above Barcelona and Real, which also has six points less. Their last championship defeat happened in Barcelona, and they were also the leaders until then, but after that derby they made three wins and a draw against Real Sociedad. It should also be said that all three wins were minimal and they had a very tough time against rivals, which are objectively much weaker.
First they defeated Huesca with 2-1 at their stadium, then they defeated Espanyol, thanks to a goal at the last moments. In the last round they played against this season’s unpleasant Valladolid and they result was 1-0, also in front of their supporters. Just enough for the first place, however, they are having problems in Europa League, where they lost to Standard on Thursday with 1-0. They will be under the imperative of victory in the last round, without the help of Sarabia, who was excluded in Liege. He is allowed to play in this duel, while Gonalons and J.Navas are out of action.
Probable lineups FC Sevilla: Vaclik – Carrico, Kjaer, S.Gomez – Vidal, Banega, Vazquez, Escudero – Sarabia – Ben Yedder, An.Silva
Alaves vs. FC Sevilla PICK
Alaves will also play bravely and for the victory against Sevilla, because they are completely relieved. Sevilla, on the other hand, wants to keep the leading position, although it will not be easy, so we expect a lot of goals in this match.
