Team News: Alaves
Alaves manager Javier Calleja doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash with a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Levante
Levante manager Paco López has to choose a team with limited availability. Nikola Vukcevic (Lumbago) and José Campaña (Muscle Injury) won’t be making appearances.
In our view, Levante should be able to breach the defence of this Alaves side, however that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We reckon that it will be a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Alaves when the full-time whistle blows. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
