Villarreal vs Deportivo Alaves Betting Tips, Free Bets & Betting Sites


Villarreal and Deportivo Alaves are set to serve up an open contest in a Spanish La Liga fixture at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Both teams have been plagued by poor defending this season and given the quality in their attacks, goals can be expected here.

Villarreal Form


Villarreal claimed a 1-0 victory at Espanyol last time out in La Liga. Karl Toko Ekambi's effort proved to be the difference with the club having 43% possession but more expected goals (1.65-0.75).

The Yellow Submarine are just two points off the European places having won four of their last six matches. Javi Calleja's men are also unbeaten at the Estadio de la Ceramica this season and head into Friday’s clash after two straight home wins.

The one criticism in a solid campaign for Villarreal will be their defence as they have conceded in three of their last four matches.

Villarreal News


Villarreal will be without captain Bruno Soriano who is currently sidelined with a leg injury. Samuel Chukwueze could be given a start after making a second half appearance at Espanyol while top scorer Gerard Moreno is set to retain his place in attack.

Deportivo Alaves Form


Deportivo Alaves were also victorious in their previous La Liga fixture as they triumphed 2-0 at home against Celta Vigo. Lisandro Mallagan opened the scoring five minutes after the break while Lucas Perez added the second eight minutes from time. They had more attempts on goal (12-6) and expected goals (2.08-1.13).

Babazorros have been plagued by inconsistency at the early stage of the season and are just one point above the relegation zone. Asier Garitano's men are winless on the road this season, losing their last three away matches and conceding seven goals in the process.

Deportivo Alaves News


Rodrigo Ely will miss the trip to Villarreal which means Lisandro Mallagan and Victor Laguardia are expected to feature in central defence. Lucas Perez and Joselu should continue their partnership in attack having combined for six goals this season.

Villarreal vs Deportivo Alaves Head to Head


Deportivo Alaves have a 12-7 edge with one draw from 20 previous matches against Villarreal. Javi Calleja’s men suffered a 2-1 defeat in the last meeting between both teams, although they were unlucky to have lost having dominated the possession and had more attempts on goal (7-6).

Villarreal vs Deportivo Alaves Betting Odds


Two straight home wins mean Villarreal are favourites at 1.53 while Deportivo Alaves are valued at 6.50 to triumph with a draw set at odds of 4.00. With both teams conceding goals in recent matches, BTTS is worth a punt at 1.95.

There have been over 2.5 goals in the last five meetings and a similar outcome is offered at 1.90 at bet365. If you want to go higher, over 3.5 goals is priced at odds of 3.40.

Villarreal vs Deportivo Alaves Match Up 


Santi Cazorla has been the star for Villarreal this season, providing the drive and creativity in midfield and notching up four goals and three assists. Gerard Moreno has also impressed for the hosts with six goals in nine matches.

Deportivo Alaves will look to the dual threat of Lucas Perez and Joselu to provide the spark in attack on Friday. Both men have three goals each this season and should cause the Villarreal backline plenty of problems.
