Analysis of the presented statistics of the upcoming match between the teams Alaves and Betis allows us to identify some possible patterns and trends. Alaves seems to be struggling in recent matches, with only 2 wins and 5 losses in their last 8 matches. Betis, on the contrary, performs slightly better: 3 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws. It is noteworthy that Alaves has recently played a number of matches against strong opponents, which could have a negative impact on its form. Betis, despite quite impressive results, had a busy schedule, which, in addition to matches in the championship, also included European matches.
If we delve deeper into individual statistics, we can note that Alaves dominates possession in most matches, but cannot convert their shots into goals. The ratio of shots on goal is relatively low, which indicates either a lack of finishing quality or that Alaves are facing teams with strong defenses. Expected goals (xG) stats suggest they are not performing well, especially against teams like Celta Vigo where their xG was significantly higher than the number of goals they scored. Betis, on the other hand, seem to be more efficient in their play. Possession and expected goals figures, especially against teams like Cadiz, show that the team can be dangerous when given the opportunity.
The corner stats for both teams are mixed, but the yellow cards indicate a somewhat aggressive style of play by Alaves, which could lead to the risk of red cards or dangerous free kicks being awarded.
Given the importance of the match, Alaves may be desperate for points given their current form, while Betis may approach it with more confidence given their recent performances and the extra points they already have.
Both Alaves and Betis have shown a penchant for high-scoring matches in recent matches. In particular, Betis boast an impressive average of 2.8 goals per match. On the other hand, although Alaves' goal average is slightly lower, their expected goals (xG) data suggests they haven't had much luck lately, hinting at a possible spike in goals scored in the near future. Lack of performance in relation to xG may improve in the coming matches. In addition, given the stakes on the match, especially for Alaves, we can talk about an aggressive approach to the game, which will increase the likelihood of scoring a goal.
