An entertaining encounter in this day of Saturday is the one that will play Alavés and Atlético Madrid by a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, the “mattress” box slightly leaves as a favorite because of the hierarchy it has. For this reason and even if your rival is rough and very complicated to overcome in his field, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple victory of those directed by Simeone. At stake is staying in the fight for qualifying directly to the next Champions League.
Take into account that Alavés comes from equaling 2-2 to Leganés as a local, leaving two points on the way. The team remains in the middle of the table and away from the decline, after registering 23 units in total. Of course, he has only won one game in his last 5 appearances, then equals another 3 and loses the remaining he played. For the Copa del Rey, he equaled 0-0 against Alcorcón and qualified to the semifinal of the competition.
On the other hand do not forget that the local table has obtained diverse results before its people, product of 2 triumphs, 5 parities and 2 falls (9 goals in favor and 10 against). Before equaling Leganés, the team had drawn 1-1 with Las Palmas and beat Betis 1-0.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Atletico Madrid comes from equaling 2-2 against Athletic Bilbao as a visitor, staying with 35 units in the general table. The team cut a streak of 3 wins in a row, their goal being to qualify for the Champions League (direct or previous stage). Despite having many figures, he is lacking balance and effectiveness facing the rival arch. For the cup event, equaled 2-2 against Eibar and qualified the semifinals of the championship.
ALAVES – ATLETICO MADRID PREDICTION
To finish we tell you that the “mattresses” have added 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses playing as visitors, managing to score 14 goals and yield 9 on their fence. Before equaling in the new San Mamés, the Atleti had beaten 0-3 to Osasuna, lost 3-0 against Villarreal and defeated 0-2 to Eíbar.
After reviewing the details of this match I play for a victory of the visiting team due to the following reasons: First because Atletico Madrid is a well-worked team that knows what it plays despite some other football pitfall. Secondly because the “mattress” box knows how to stand as a visitor thanks to the hierarchy of their players, who know how to take advantage of the situations they have. And third, because Alavés, whether it is a tactical team and complicated to overcome in his field, can end up losing by some punctual play or by some defensive error provoked by the pressure of the Atleti.
