Alaves will aim to extend their winning streak in La Liga to three games when they host Villarreal at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Sunday afternoon. Alaves won 1-0 on the road at Celta Vigo last time out in La Liga thanks to a second-half goal from Tomas Pina. On the flip side, Atletico Madrid only managed a 1-1 away draw at Villarreal, despite the fact that Filipe Luis gave them the lead just after the break. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Alaves have only lost two of their opening nine league outings so far this season. They have been one of the surprise packages of this 2018/19 La Liga campaign and currently lie third in the standings, just one point adrift of the current leaders Barcelona. In addition, Alaves can count on their home form in La Liga this season, having won two and drawn two of their four league fixtures.
On the other hand, Villarreal have won just one game in their last seven competitive fixtures. The Yellow Submarine come into this tie on the back of a four-game winless streak across all competitions, registering two draws and two defeats in this term. Away from home, Villarreal were on a four-game unbeaten run prior to their 3-1 defeat on the road at Espanyol in their most recent league trip.
Alaves have been amazing in this early part of the campaign and they also hold a strong head-to-head record against Villarreal. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Alaves Draw No Bet at odds 2.20.

Four of the last five league meetings between these two teams have seen more than three goals. Three of Villarreal’s last five games across all competitions have ended with over 2.5 goals.
