La Liga. Round 32
Stadium: Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)
Saturday pool of the Spanish La Liga round 33 will continue with the match between Alaves and Rayo Vallecano. For Alaves, every upcoming match in the championship is like the last battle, which can never be lost. While the Red Sashes are in the middle of the table, they do not need the points like the Basques, but they still cannot guarantee their place in the elite next season, so we cannot say that the visitors are not motivated.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Alaves has been winless for the last seven games in La Liga. During this period, the Basques only drew twice, with Getafe away and Sevilla at home, while the other five matches ended in a loss. Unsurprisingly, the future hosts are at the bottom of the standings, seven points behind 17th-placed Mallorca with seven games to go. Let's face it, in such a situation Alaves have little chance of salvation. Alaves has the 19th home record in the division with four wins, four draws and seven losses in 15 games, 12-18 goal difference.
Rayo also has nothing to brag about. The team from the Spanish capital has not known victory for 11 games in two tournaments. But the situation is not critical for the Vallecans, thanks to the excellent first round. Rayo played two matches in April and both ended in a draw: 2-2 away with Granada and 1-1 at home with Valencia. Before round 32 starts, Rayo is in 13th position, with an asset of 34 points. The Madrid side has terrible statistics on the road, 18th in the division, with one win in 14 games and a goal difference of 10-25.

Expert Betting Tips
The Primera is almost at the finish line, and in order to get out of the relegation zone the Basques need only victories in such matches as the upcoming one. Rayo Vallecano had an excellent first round, but in the second half of the season the Red Sashes have huge problems with the results. And, frankly, even in the first round Madrid team was not very good on the road. As the first bet, we suggest the home team's victory with a zero handicap. H1 (0) for 1.90 at Bet365.
Both teams have problems with creation and realization of goal chances. Thus, we don't expect a lot of goals scored, we think that the fate of the match may well decide by a single goal. The second bet we offer is the correct score 1-0 for 7.00 by 22bet.
