As the last place team Alaves tries to get out of the relegation zone, they will host 13th-place team Espanyol at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on May 11. While Alaves is sitting at the bottom of the standings, they aren’t necessarily performing the worst. They recently took down 7th-place team Villareal which was quite unexpected.
Alaves’ calendar isn’t looking that bad for them which might give them enough motivation coming into their match against Espanyol. After facing Espanyol, Velázquez’ men will have to take the team leading them in their standings by 1 point, Levante. If Alaves wins their next two matches then it’s pretty safe to say that they won’t be in the relegation zone anymore.
Moreno’s men will try to be Alaves’ demise in their upcoming match as they are still 1 point away from securing La Liga’s safety this season after a 1-1 draw against Arrasate’s side a couple of days ago. This means that Espanyol can’t go soft on Alaves and needs to secure a lead early on in the match.
And while this scenario is very unlikely, Espanyol is still within the relegation zone if things go extremely bad for them in the last 3 La Liga matchdays. They still have to face Valencia, a team sitting much higher in the standings, although Espanyol was able to dominate Valencia the last time they played against each other.
The Espanyol team might take advantage of Alaves’ last disappointing result. Celta completely rolled over Alaves and finished the game with a 4-0 score in their favor. Not only Alaves got completely demolished, Ximo Navarro got a red card around the 64-minute mark. This game was very demoralizing for Velazquez’ side, and the timing can’t be worse as their most important matches are coming in the next few day.
