Alaves – Statistics & Current Form
Although the Basques were able to hold their own under head coach Abelardo in the last two seasons, there was a split at the end of last season. Differences in opinion between coach and club management made for the split.
Since then, Asier Garitano is responsible for the Basques. Even under the new coach has not changed much in the style of play. The main focus is put on the defensive, before the goal completion is forced with fast switching play.
At home, this works well so far as desired. In the previous five home games at the Mendizorrotza Stadium, the Basques were able to collect ten counters. Goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco had to concede only one goal – in the 0-1 defeat against Sevilla FC.
In the four remaining home games, there was a goalless draw and three wins. With Levante, Mallorca and Celta Vigo, however, these victories could be retracted against teams from the back table region.
So far, the Basques have only been able to collect one point (on Matchday 3) and thus have eleven points on the credit side, which currently rank 13th in the LaLiga table. Last Friday, the team disintegrated in the closing stages and had to be beaten accordingly to 1: 4 the yellow submarine from Villarreal.

The Rojiblancos from Madrid do not have much in common with the team from the last years. However, the way in which the Madrid players play their football matches has not changed completely.
