Prediction

  • With a victory at home, Celta could move two points above Alaves, whilst simultaneously climbing out of the relegation zone. What's more, they have not lost to Alaves in their last six meetings.
  • Alaves have not scored in their last four matches away from home and only Las Palmas have a lower goals scored per game ratio (0.8).
  • Rafa Benitez has been building a disciplined and cultured style of play through his carefully managed squad and should navigate a victory for Celta on Thursday night.
