The match

Second-placed Las Palmas will hope to hold on to automatic promotion when they play host to the side directly below them, Alaves, on Saturday. Going into their final fixture of the season, the league title and the two automatic promotion spots are still wide open. Las Palmas are one point behind Granada at the top and are just one point ahead of Alaves. Granada will be kicking off against Leganes at the same time this match gets underway. A draw could be enough to secure Las Palmas second place. In the event of a draw, Levante, in fourth place, is two points behind Las Palmas and would need to beat Oviedo by a five-goal margin to pull level. The hosts won their last match 4-1 against Cartagena. They are now unbeaten in their last five, with two wins and three draws. Las Palmas have taken 35 points of a possible 60 at home, though they have failed to win any of their last five matches, drawing four and losing one. Of particular concern will be that they have failed to beat Alaves in their last five attempts, and a loss here will cost them dearly. 

Meanwhile, Alaves will be hoping to snatch automatic promotion at the last moment. They also won their last match, beating Malaga 2-1 and extending their run to three matches without defeat. Over their last six matches, Alaves have won two, drawn three, and lost one, scoring eight and conceding five in that time. Their away form hasn’t been great this season, with a record of six wins, six draws, and eight losses. They’ve failed to win any of their last three matches on the road, drawing two and losing one. Alaves have drawn three and won two of their last five against this opponent, outscoring them 9-3 in their unbeaten run, which dates back to 2015. They have to go all out here, as another draw won’t be enough for Alaves in this one.
