Match Time：1/3/2021 23:15 Sunday (GMT+8)
Deportivo Alaves is hosting Atletico Madrid at Estadio de Mendizorroza in round 17 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Alaves has had some solid results as of late, and because of that, they have escapade the relegation zone, at least for now. Alaves is in 13th place with 18 points, 14 scored goals, and 18 conceded goals. Deportivo hasn’t lost any of their last 2 games, including their latest game against Osasuna. Deportivo has had 68% of ball possession in that game, 1 shot on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 82% of the correct passes. Alaves conceded a goal in the 67th minute, but they were able to tie the score in the 75th minute. The final score of this match was 1-1. Lucas Perez is the leading goalscorer for Alaves with 4 goals and 2 assists, while Mendez and Joselu added 2 goals each. Pons is injured, Ely is still questionable for this game, while Pina is suspended because of the yellow cards. Despite being outside the relegation zone now, I think Alaves will have a tough season, but the good news for them is that there are worse teams in LaLiga, and I believe they will be successful in their goal to stay in LaLiga.
Atletico is still going strong, and they are still at the top of the table with 35 points, great 27 scored goals, and only 5 conceded goals which makes them the best defensive teams in LaLiga, and one of the best offensive teams as well. Atletico is now on a 4-game winning streak during which they scored 9 goals while conceding only 1 goal. Atletico was hosting Getafe in their latest LaLiga game, and they have had a solid game with 50% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 75% of the correct passes. This wasn’t the best game Atletico has played this season, but they have won this game 1-0 with another goal from Suarez. With a total of 8 goals, Suarez is the leading goalscorer for Atletico, while Felix and Llorente added 5 goals. Trippier and Correa added 4 assists each. Herrera and Grbic are both injured, while Savic is suspended because of the yellow cards. Atletico is definitely the best team in LaLiga this season, and I would love to see them winning the title because they are no longer just a defensive team. Atletico is calm and composed, and they can be an extremely dangerous team.
