Back resurgent Alaves to see off travel-sick Malaga

Eibar v Girona could be tight

Abelardo is the coach of Alaves

Sky Sports Football, from 6.30pm Thursday

Eibar v Girona 6.30pm
A run of five league games without defeat has eased Eibar's relegation fears but Jose Mendilibar’s troops may have to settle for a point when surprise packages Girona travel to the Basque Country.

Eibar are clearly improving, as highlighted by a trio of home wins over Real Betis, Espanyol and Valencia, but Girona haven’t lost on their travels since an early-season defeat at Athletic Bilbao and should prove tough to budge.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 27-11 188bet

Key stat
Girona are unbeaten in six away league matches.

Alaves v Malaga 8.30pm
Alaves gained a crucial victory against basement boys Las Palmas in their last home outing and they could overcome another of their relegation rivals when second-bottom Malaga come calling.

Just one point separates the pair but Alaves have won three of their last four games while travel-sick Malaga have suffered defeat in seven of their eight road trips.

Recommendation
Alaves
1pt 23-20 Hills

Key stat
Malaga have failed to score in six of their eight away league games.
