Atletico Madrid 2/11 to beat Alaves in Saturday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Atletico to beat Alaves
Odds: 2/11 @ Bet365
La Liga returns and there is another round of massively important games to come. The league table is incredibly tight, and one win can see a team jump up a number of places, while a loss can see a side slipping down the table. With all of this in mind, Atletico Madrid host Alaves on Saturday.
Atletico Madrid have been in very good form recently, and they have won four of their last five games, with the other match ending in a draw. This has allowed the side to move into third-place with 33 points, two ahead of Real Madrid, but still six behind leaders Barcelona. Atleti will be looking to keep pace with the team at the top, and a continuation of their winning run may yet see them close the gap between themselves and Barcelona.
Alaves have been struggling massively this season and they are in desperate need of a win. After 15 games they have picked up just 12 points, with four wins, no draws and 11 defeats, while they have scored just 12 goals and conceded 24 times. In their last five, they have been better, winning three times and losing twice, with two of those wins coming in their last two games. Despite this, they are still three points short of Deportivo La Coruna in 17th and safety, which means that a win over Atleti would be massive in their fight for survival. With this in mind, we are backing Atleti with odds of 2/11 from Bet365.
