Exciting and unpredictable is La Liga this season. Alaves, which are fifth in the standings, is helping for this. Rayo Vallecano is also contributing the league to be unpredictable, after winning as many points in the last four matches as in the first 16 fixtures in La Liga.

Alaves are one of the best home teams in the league and are still unbeaten there. They have conceded just six goals, while there were defeat teams like Real Madrid and Valencia. Until recently, Rayo Vallecano had only ten points and were in serious danger of relegation. After three wins and one draw, the team is still in the relegation zone but are just six points from the tenth position. In the last round, Rayo took one point after a 2-2 draw at home against Real Sociedad, while Alaves were defeat in an away game versus Getafe with 0-4.

The home factor will be an advantage for Alaves, but the improved form of Rayo and the small number of injured players will give them a chance for this match. We expect an equal game, with goals for both sides. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in William Hill, where you can take advantage of a $30 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
