On Friday night, La Liga returns after the international break, with Alaves hosting struggling Granada at the Estadio de Mendizorroza.Alaves form guide
Luis Garcia’s team are in 15th place in La Liga after a poor recent run of form in the Spanish top flight. A 2-1 defeat at reigning champions Barcelona in their last league game means that they have won just once in their previous nine matches.
Despite the poor recent run of league form, they are still in 15th place in the table, five points clear of the relegation zone.
The game in Catalonia was a rare high-scoring encounter for the home team, as nine of their previous 11 matches in La Liga have produced under 2.5 goals.
A 1-0 win over Almeria in their last home match in La Liga ended a three-game winless run on home soil in the Spanish top-flight. The game was another low-scoring outing for Alaves, as their previous five games have all produced under 2.5 goals.Granada form guide
The Andalusian's poor start to the campaign continued last time out, as they drew 1-1 against Getafe. The result means that Paco Lopez’s team has failed to win in ten league games. However, the draw at least ended a three-game losing streak in La Liga.
Granada has found away games difficult to win, as they are winless in seven La Liga games on their travels, having picked up just one draw and suffered six defeats.
The visitors have struggled in front of goal on their travels lately, scoring just once in their last four away matches in La Liga, contributing to three of their previous four games producing under 2.5 goals scored.What am I backing?
The bet I am backing is for Alaves to record a narrow victory in a low-scoring game, mainly because of Granada’s woeful recent away record late.
