Alaves vs Celta Vigo – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 20.10.2019

Four defeats from their last five La Liga (LL) games (W1) is a poor return for Alavés, especially as they failed to score in three of those losses. In fact both teams have now scored in just two of their eight top-flight games this season, and none of their matches at home (W2, D1, L1) – all four of which produced under 2.5 goals.
If Alavés do manage to secure a much-needed victory, expect it to follow both those trends – three of their last four home league victories saw just one side score and under 2.5 goals. Yet with three of their four home games this term being goalless at half-time, fans may be waiting for any goal regardless.
Celta Vigo travel here on the hunt for their first away victory of the campaign (D2, L1), but are the league’s worst away scorers ahead of this round averaging 0.33 goals per road trip. In fact with just three away goals conceded in total, their away games are currently averaging just 1.33 total goals per fixture.
Not one of those three away games has seen a goal before half-time, which has also been the case in the last two H2Hs. However, whilst slight favourites coming into this game, Celta are winless in the last four competitive meetings held here (D1, L3).
Players to watch: Two of Joselu’s three league goals this season were as Alavés’ first goalscorer.
Santi Mina’s been involved in three of Celta’s five LL goals (one goal, two assists). Three of his previous four league strikes came before half-time, including one against Alavés.
Stat attack: There’s been five penalties across Alavés’ last four LL fixtures.
There’s been over 9.5 corners in each of Celta’s last four LL games.
Five of Celta’s last six LL away defeats came via a two-goal losing margin.
