ATH vs ALA Dream11 Grand League Team | Deportivo Alaves vs Athletic Bilbao | La Liga

Araba, December 18 at 01:30 AM IST

Spanish La Liga will be seeing two teams who are having a reverse of fortunes. Athletic Bilbao were once the heavyweights of the league and they will be taking on the revelation of the season in Deportivo Alaves on Monday.

Athletic Bilbao have had a turbulent season, to say the least, this year. The fact that the club of their stature is in the 18th spot in the league table is unheard of, especially, when the team hasn’t lost any of their major players in the summer. Coach Gazika Garitano still should be given some credit as he has made this team won three games out of four recently. He will be looking to came the same formation and maintain this balance for the future.

Meanwhile, Deportivo Alaves were as high as the second placed in the La Liga league table this year. They already have had good wins over some big-name teams. Manager Abelardo Fernandez took over the reins of the club for this season, and it is apparent the effect he has had on the players. If they get one or two more stars in the roster, this team can genuinely challenge for a spot in the UEFA Champions League in the coming years.

Team News

Athletic Bilbao will be without some players but none of them are going to affect the starting XI, so in other words, they have a fully fit first team.

On the other hand, Deportivo Alaves are missing Rodrigo Ely and Darko Brasanac. The team has had a fantastic season, and few changes are expected in the starting XI.

Playing XIs

Athletic Bilbao’s XI: Herrerin (GK), Marcos, Alvarez, Martinez, Yuri, Garcia, Extebarria, Williams, Garcia, Muniain, Aduriz

Deportivo Alaves’s XI: Pacheco (GK), Aguirregabiria, Navarro, Laguardia, Duarte, Garcia, Pina, Wakaso, Gomez, Calleri, Jony

This ATH vs ALA Dream11 prediction is high-risk but you may reap rewards if some assumptions come off. We advise you not to use these teams in small league contests.

ATH vs ALA Dream11 Grand League Teams

Team 1: Athletic Bilbao favoured team

– Athletic Bilbao attackers have been taken in this team. Even though their league position is awful, if looked at objectively, the forward players they have are actually really good. Inaki Williams, Aduriz, Iker Muniain and Benat Etxebarria are the key players to look out for.

– If in our scenario of an Athletic Bilbao win, let’s assume Deportivo Alaves scored a goal or two. Then, the inclusion of some of their main players will benefit in terms of points as well.

Team 2: Deportivo Alaves favoured team

– Deportivo Alaves’s have been the surprise package of the entire La Liga this season. It has been a team effort but Ibai Gomez, Jony Rodriguez and Calleri are the ones to watch out for in this game. The defence also has been tight and credit has to go to Navarro and goalkeeper Pacheco.

– Like we mentioned in Team 1, the exact same approach is taken when it comes to taking four Athletic Bilbao players.

Team 3, 4, 5: Teams of players who are underrated in their respective clubs

– Athletic Bilbao might have more to lose out on if the team is unable to win the game here as they are near the relegation zone. We see them putting out the best first team.

– But, Deportivo Alaves do have a safety net and can bring in one-or-two fringe players in this contest to give them some game time and see what they can do.
