Is Alaves the fifth home win of the season? Let’s find out together in our betting prediction below!
La Liga is really exciting and tight this season, which also applies to the lower regions in the table. As part of the 23rd game day, there will be a Basque derby between Alaves and Eibar on Friday evening. In this comparison, the bookmakers see the prediction as a slight advantage for the host. Both clubs are in the middle of a relegation battle and are currently only six points ahead of the magic line.
Alaves vs Eibar Betting Odds and Prediction
For this reason, it is all the more important for the Babazorros to score points at home against direct competitors. Last weekend, Asier Garitano’s team showed a good performance away from home in Seville, drawing a draw. The guest from Eibar is similarly poor in the Spanish league and has to put a lot of effort into not slipping further into the relegation battle.
Eibar also took a 1-1 draw against Betis Sevilla last week. In the upcoming derby between Alaves and Eibar, the odds for a renewed division of points are 3.10 at the top. However, such a draw would not really help either team. For this reason, the spectators at the Estadio Mendizorroza can look forward to a tough fight.
Alaves – Statistics & current form
Alaves has played a fairly mixed season so far and is accordingly in the table with 24 points on the 15th place in the table. It is not very exciting for Alaves abroad or in Mendizorroza at home. Last weekend Alaves had to compete at Sevilla, where the team of coach Garitano took one point.
The Basques performed well overall and even took the lead in the 70th minute after a goal from Joselu. However, Alaves could only look forward to seven minutes before goalkeeper Pacheco had to concede the goal to the later 1-1 final. Now it is time for Alaves to concentrate fully on the derby in front of their own audience against Eibar.
In Mendizorroza it was only enough for four wins and four draws, while on the other side you had to accept three home bankruptcies.
“We got a point, which is a shame after our tour. But we are happy about this point, which is very good for us. ”
However, there has been no complete success in the past four home games. On the defensive, Alaves often made a stable impression at home and only conceded eight goals in eleven home games, while on the offensive, on the other hand, the punch was lacking at home, which can be seen from just thirteen goals.
With a view to Friday, the coach only has to do without the injured Tomas Pina, so Garitano can send his supposedly strongest team into the race. The coach has an additional option on the right wing, where the club has brought back an old friend from Mexico with Edgar Mendez.
Probable lineup of Alaves:
➤ Pacheco; Duarte, Etxeita, Djene, Damian, Cucurella, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Nyom; Mata, Molina

Abroad, the SD Eibar only scored seven goals, making it the second weakest offensive in the league after Leganes. In contrast, the defense on the opponent’s place was often relatively solid and allowed 14 goals in the eleven away games completed. Overall, Eibar only allowed four times more than one goal at these appearances.
“We could have won against Betis Sevilla. But the draw also helps us in a difficult situation. ”
Most recently Eibar made a goalless draw with Celta Vigo and last weekend there was a 1-1 draw in the home game against Betis Sevilla. When comparing Alaves and Eibar, the odds for an away win are 3.10 at the top. However, coach Mendilibar currently has a few injury concerns and has to continue without injured Kike and Sergio Alvarez Diaz.

➤ Dmitrovic; Cote, Bigas, Burgos, Tejero; Diop, Exposito; Inui, Orellana, Leon; Enrich
