Alaves vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Match Preview



Alaves vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Match Preview

Estadio Mendizorrotza will host Sunday’s football game between Deportivo Alaves and Celta Vigo. 

The Basques have been struggling to find their form of late, and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Celta. 

Despite failing to convert a penalty in a 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, Joselu should keep his place up front, while John Guidetti, Abdel Abqar, and Rodrigo Ely are all sidelined through injuries.

Os Celeste, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid. 

The Galicians are stuck in the middle of the standings, and given the importance of Sunday’s clash for Deportivo Alaves, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. 

The Likes of Nestor Araujo, Augusto Solari, Ruben Blanco, Emre Mor, and Sergio Alvarez are out of contention with injuries.

Team News:

Alaves will again be without the services of Rodrigo Ely through injury, but the home side will be boosted by the return of Tomas Pina and Manu Garcia from suspension.

Ximo Navarro has also recovered from illness and should again start at right-back, while Joselu is expected to lead the attack with support from Edgar Mendez.

There is also likely to be another start for on-loan Manchester United attacker Facundo Pellistri, while Luis Rioja could replace Pere Pons for the hosts.

As for Celta, Augusto Solari, Nestor Araujo, Sergio Alvarez, Ruben Blanco and Emre Mor are all unavailable for selection through injury.

Araujo's absence means that Joseph Aidoo should get the nod alongside Jeison Murillo in the middle of the defence, while Ivan Villar will retain his position between the sticks.

There are not expected to be any surprises further forward for the visitors, with Mina, Nolito and Brais Mendez all set to feature alongside leading scorer Iago Aspas.

Alaves possible starting lineup:
