There will be a meeting in La Liga this weekend seeing the side second from top facing off against the team sitting second bottom. Seville will be looking for a third win in four, while Alaves are seeking a second win in four.
La Liga Preview
The La Liga title race looks set to go on for the remainder of the season this term. Sevilla find themselves six points off the top of the standings coming into this weekend, but could cut that Real Madrid advantage to three points before the runaway leaders kick off this weekend.
Sevilla has been in excellent form throughout the season, as they have suffered just two defeats from the 26 games that they have played. That is the joint-fewest defeats suffered by any side in the Spanish top-flight. However, the nine draws that they have picked up means that Real still hold a comfortable advantage at this stage.
The visitors this weekend are unbeaten in their previous five, but they have won just twice during that time. Their latest win was picked up over the weekend, as they beat Real Betis 2-1 at home. Ivan Rakitic and Munir El Haddadi scored the goals.
Alaves are in a dire position coming into this round of fixtures, as they remain in the bottom three of the standings with 12 games of the season left to play. However, they have won more games compared to the other two sides in the relegation places, despite sitting 19th.
Their biggest problem has been being too easy to beat, as they have lost a league-high of 15 games this term. However, they were able to end that run with a creditable draw last time out against Getafe. But, that result means that they remain four points from safety.
Alaves vs Sevilla Head to Head
Alaves are winless in their previous eight games against Sevilla. Their last win came in this fixture back in 2018. Since then, Sevilla has picked up five wins, and there have been three draws. The most recent draw came back in November, as the sides played out an entertaining 2-2.
Alaves vs Sevilla Prediction
Alaves may be boosted by the draw that they picked up against Sevilla earlier in the season, but it remains difficult to see past the visitors as they have an excellent record. Our preference is for Sevilla to take the points on Friday.
