Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Deportivo Alaves play host to Real Betis in the opening match of the new La Liga campaign. Alaves have been anything but impressive in pre-season, with the team losing to both Osasuna and Athletic Club, while sharing the spoils with Real Sociedad. The Basques were not too active in the summer transfer window, with the likes of Pablo Machin, Deyverson, and Battaglia (loan) joining the club.
On the other hand, a number of first-team regulars left the Estadio Mendizorrotza outfit. Los Beticos, on the other hand, have appointed Manuel Pellegrini as the club’s new boss, meaning that they have big ambitions for the upcoming season. Seeing that the club owners managed to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window; adding the likes of Martin Montoya, Claudio Bravo, and Victor Ruiz to the squad, away win should be considered.
