Deportivo Alavés have performed here at Estadio de Mendizorroza this season with 5 wins from 8 La Liga 2 matches. Some points have been lost, as they have drawn 3 games and lost 0. Two home wins in a row for Alavés bring valid hopes of a third.

Villarreal II form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Villarreal II so far with only 5 points returning home. The records show 1-2-5 (win-draw-lose).

Villarreal II are travelling after their nice 1-0 home win in the fixture against UD Ibiza (placed 21st). Tasende was the top performer of the team in that game with a match score of 7.44. The defender Tasende hit two key passes and won 4 of 8 duels.

Preceding that game, the 0-1 loss visiting Huesca's place.
