VAL vs ALA Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Valencia vs Alaves Laliga Live Score August 28


VAL vs ALA Dream11: The second game of the third Laliga round to be played on Friday night is the Valencia vs Alaves duel at the Estadio de Mestalla in Valencia. Jose Bordalas hasn’t disappointed on delivering his Getafe reputation at Valencia. A quick implementation of excessive ‘gamesmanship’ (that is the polite way to describe it) has seen them pick up four points from two games with a 1-0 win and a 1-1 draw; both of their goals coming from Carles Soler via the penalty spot. They come up against an Alaves side that have started the season with back-to-back defeats at home to Real Madrid and Real Mallorca. Another low-scoring match is expected here.

Date: August 28, Saturday
Kick-Off: 1:45 AM (IST)
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla, Valencia

VAL vs ALA Dream 11 Teams

GK: Pacheco
DEF: Lejeune, Alderete, Paulista
MID: Wass, Jason, Cheryshev, Garcia
FOR: Joselu, Gomez, Guedes

Likely Winner:

  • Neither of these sides have been particularly good in their opening games, though Valencia have a lot more to show for their efforts.
  • Valencia won their opener against Getafe and took a point last time out in controversial circumstances. Pepe Bordalas’ men were given a penalty in the 88th-minute despite VAR appearing to show very-little-to-no contact. Nevertheless, Carlos Soler stepped up, as he did in the opening game, and scored, this time securing a late point against Granada.
  • Javi Calleja’s men were brushed aside with ease by Real Madrid before losing to newly promoted Mallorca at home last time out. A much better performance is required of the Basque side here, but they are likely to come up short against Valencia.

Match Odds:

The odds in favor of a Valencia to get the win is 2.06.
