Alaves ended at 9th position at the table in Spanish Primera and that was their first appearance in elite after ten years, however it will be difficult to keep their Primea status for the next season unless don't show some significant improving of their form. After 14 rounds they are at 19th position at the table in relegation zone and nine points earned can't be enough for safe zone, in 15th round are welcoming Las Palmas, team which also weren't impressive and Alaves must try to exploit advantage of home field and win this duel, they are slight favorites and at this moment seems capable to win.

In previous round four days ago Alaves defeated Girona on the road, they were solid on that trip and until 71st minute were two goals behind but then managed to score three goals and grab points, before that in Cup defeated Getafe in Spanish Cup and now must try to extend that positive streak. Victory in this match could get them closer to a position above red line, for the first time in this campaign hosts have two consecutive victories and i believe that can achieve another one in front of their crowd. Defenders Ely (13/0), Litri (1/0), Laguardia (0/0) and forward Sobrino (8/0) are all injured and will stay out of action while appearance of defender Vigaray (12/0) is questionable.

Las Palmas meanwhile are also struggling in this season, they just can't find the right form and are at 18th position with two points less than safe placed Deportivo, same as hosts they are in problem and must give their best to take something out of this game. In last round managed to collect all three points at home against Betis, in that duel celebrated with narrow result and fully deserved that victory, now it will be difficult against hosts which showed slight improving. Guests celebrated only three times in league so far, that can't be good and must show something much more in order to climb up.

In last two meetings with Alaves they got two draws and at least one point must earn again, they must show improving in their defense especially since so far conceded 32 goals, most of all teams in league and to survive must change something in their game. Defense never was strongest side of this team but they were much better in offense, now in 14 games scored only 11, they simple can't be satisfied with their effort and i doubt that will manage to avoid defeat on this trip. Guests are coming here without injured defender Bigas ((8/0), midfielder Halilovic (3/0), Momo (4/0), Vitolo (9/1), Aquilani (11/0) and forward Tana (9/1).

Alaves must win, they have a chance to do that at home stadium against opponents which were pretty bad so far, hosts didn't impressed with their goal scoring skills but i'm sure that can break one of the worst defenses in league, victory of Alaves is my choice for this duel.
