THE PREDICTION

Form has dropped off for both of these sides in recent weeks with Granada having little to play for other than a receding chance of a European place, while Alaves are still not safe but it is extremely unlikely they will go down now. Motivation has faded for both teams and it is difficult to make a case for either of them. Alaves have made plenty of rotations to their starting line-up in recent games and have started giving playing time to some of their younger players. That may favour Granada whose team is more settled and the visitors can pick up at least a point here.
