THE PREDICTION

A first-half own goal earned Athletic Club a 1-0 win at Leganes last time out and kept their hopes of a top six La Liga finish very much alive. Seventh-placed Deportivo Alaves are just three points behind Athletic, but Abelardo's men are winless in their last six league games, so a home win looms.
