Our bet is on Valencia for this game because they are already leading the first leg and they would try to dominate the game from the start, not leaving much around for the home team to capitalise on. Though the home team is still in the game and it would be not wise to rule them out so quick but chances are that they won't make it. Moreover, Valencia has won 5 of the last six head to head encounters with Alaves, there are not much that would make it different.
