With both sides going through contrasting forms, Sevilla will be looking to pick themselves up whilst Deportivo Alaves try to end the season on some sort of winning streak as the face off in La Liga’s final game.
La Liga 2020/2021
Venue: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
Sevilla completed their objective of finishing in the top four weeks ago and at a point looked like outside challengers for the title but after falling to defeat against Athletic Bilbao and failing to take maximum points off Real Madrid, those hopes vanished.
They got battered last time out against Villarreal 4-0, a game which they dominated even when they were down to 10 men. It’s been a successful season for Julen Lopetegui and his players and they’ll be looking to round off on a high with victory over Alaves.
Deportivo Alaves doused any relegation fears with back to back victories over Elche and Granada and secured themselves another season in La Liga.
The victory over Elche gave them their first away league victory since late November, back when they defeated Real Madrid.
Alaves cannot improve on their current position on the table but they could still drop a place to 16th if other results go against them and they fail to defeat Sevilla — a side they haven’t defeated away from home this century.
Sevilla have no injuries to worry about but Diego Carlos and Marcos Acuna are suspended for the game.
Burgui, Javi Lopez, Rodrigo Ely and Inigo Cordoba are all injured and will miss the game.
Sevilla’s last five La Liga games: WLDWL
Deportivo Alaves’ last five La Liga games: DLDWW
Sevilla are unbeaten in their last six games against Alaves.
Deportivo Alaves have one win in their last 13 away league matches.
In recent times, when both sides have faced each other, it tends to be a case of cagey affairs, but with both sides unlikely to improve on their league standings, expect caution to be thrown to winds here as both sets of sides would be looking to put on a show to end the season.
Sevilla have the second best home record compared to Alaves that have one of the worst away records in the league. It should be a great contest in which Sevilla eventually triumph in. Bet on Sevilla to win and both sides to score at 19/10.
