The match

Alaves continue their bid to return to La Liga at the first attempt. They top Liga II and host Villarreal B who are 10th in the table going into this game. Alaves finished bottom of La Liga last season but are currently a point clear in Liga II after 16 games. They have only lost one league game this season, a 3-0 away loss to second placed Burgos. That defeat came in October and since then Alaves have been unbeaten in seven league games. Home form has seen them win five league games and draw the other three with only four goals conceded. There have been three clean sheets kept in the last four home league fixtures, though two have ended goalless.

Villarreal B are eight points behind their opponents. They are only a couple of points behind the final promotion play-off position. However, being the Villarreal reserve team, they are unable to win promotion to La Liga. They'd actually be relegated if Villarreal ended up in Liga II. They'll be glad therefore that Villarreal are 10 points clear of the La Liga relegation zone. Villarreal B have only lost one of their last five league matches, a big improvement after going five without a win. Away form is not good though with just five points from eight league matches. That's compared to five wins out of eight and no defeats on home soil. Only two points have been earned from their last seven away Liga II matches. Back a home win here.
