ALA vs LEG Dream11: Deportivo Alaves will be aiming to snap their two-game losing run when they host bottom-two side Leganes in La Liga at Mendizorroza Stadium. The visitors are at 19th and five points away from safety.
There's no denying that Deportivo Alaves have had a poor season so far. Their current 15th position is not what you would expect from them, but more concerning is the fact that only two points separate them from the relegation zone, and if they somehow lose this game, which is a possibility considering the trend with their results, Alaves could end up in the relegation zone. Still, you would fancy them in this game, at least at home against a team worse than them.
Alaves are also a better team in home games than what the overall table suggest about them. Four of the total five wins have come at home for them, and more importantly, three in the last four home games.
Leganes, on the other hand, are without a win in away games this season. They have lost five and draw two of their seven away assignments before this one.
