In addition, Los Nervionenses have dominated the recent head-to-head matchups against Alavés. In the last 22 matches against the Basque side, Sevilla is 12-4 with six draws. Alavés has not beaten Sevilla since January 2018, a run of eight matches.
Why you should back Alaves
Alavés has one of La Liga’s most dangerous scorers in Joselu. The 31-year-old forward has 12 goals on 43 shots in 26 league matches. The 12 goals is tied for fifth in La Liga and is the most for Joselu since he graduated from Spain’s second division in 2012.
