Deportivo Alaves hosts Leganes
Alaves finally managed to escape from the relegation zone of the league, having won their last game against Sevilla at home. This was their third win in their last five matches, which proves that they are in a good shape at the moment. They had some serious difficulties since the start of the campaign, but now they are more hopeful than ever for their survival.
It’s curious to note that Deportivo Alaves are the only team without a draw in La Liga. Their record in the league so far is 6 wins and 13 defeats. Will they record a draw until the end of the season?
Now Leganes are coming to town. They are performing in a decent way this season, playing like a typical midtable team. Leganes are currently 13th in the La Liga standings with 24 points won so far. They have a record of 7 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats. In their last five games, they have won twice and lost twice. For now, they can feel safe for their future in La Liga, but they should not forget that it’s a long season and there are many games until the end.
Deportivo Alaves can’t use the suspended Ruben Duarte, while Burgui is injured. Manu Garcia and Hector Hernandez remain doubtful for the game.
Leganes can’t use Mauro Dos Santos and Jon Serrantes, who are still recovering from their last injuries.
It’s a curious game. Leganes are better positioned than Alaves in the league, but the home team is improving vastly in the last month. Until recently we thought that Alaves will hardly fight their way for survival, but now things are looking different. Let’s see what can they do against Leganes.
