Spain: La Liga – round 19.
Match start: 16:15 (GMT+1)
This will be an interesting meeting of the teams that are taking different sides of the standings, with different tasks for the season, but they both wish to win. Alaves is the typical fighter for survival and it is difficult to it to compete with better financed clubs of the League. Sevilla has its niche in the Spanish football representing the second echelon of the clubs that are fighting for high places and are trying to catch grandees on their mistakes.
Since the beginning of December the team is headed by Abelardo whom the fans have to remember thanks to matches for Barcelona. Under his supervision Alaves has slightly changed and has achieved several victories and this fact has made it possible for Alaves to take the 18th place in the tournament bracket. The most interesting fact is that Alaves hasn't yet ended any match with draw and this fact speaks in favor of team’s uncompromising stand. As for the squad of the club it is not so bad, especially against the background of the main rivals.
Collaboration with Berizzo didn't please the bosses of Sevilla and the Argentina coach has been replaced on Vincenzo Montella who is considered to be quite contradictory “hero”. On the one hand, Montella has a reputation of good coach but there are only few achievements in this field. At the head coach of Sevilla he has begun with a victory over modest Cádiz in frames of the Copa del Rey and in the championship Montella's team has lost to Betis (3:5). As it seems to us, Sevilla is still too disorganized to speak about any results of the work of the Italian coach and he needs 1-2 months to build his own team, with his tactical ideas on the football field.
Alaves is able to play at home arena where the team has achieved three victories. Alaves is successful also during home games against Sevilla and will fight for a draw result in the match against Montella's team.

The game promises to be very interesting if we speak about the number of scored goals. It is all about modern Sevilla which plays the attacking football, having absolutely forgot to defend. The same thing can be also applied to Alaves. Therefore Total over is more profitable.
