Alaves started really well last season and were as high as fifth at the midway point. However, they had a very poor second half and there was conflict between Abelardo, the coach, and those in charge at the club. They ultimately finished in 11th. The conflict with Abelardo led to the coach leaving. To replace him, Alaves hired former Leganes coach Asier Garitano, who didn’t have success in his most recent role at Real Sociedad. He is a defensive-minded coach and Alaves could be a very conservative team this year. Although they’ve lost a lot of good players, their summer recruitment has been pretty good, as they’ve strengthened the full-back positions with Saul Garcia and Aleix Vidal, while Joselu and Lucas Perez are risky bets but could pay off and improve the attack. They’ve assembled a fairly complete squad, even if there isn’t too much creativity in midfield, apart from in the form of wingers. It looks like they’ll be the kind of team that use the wings to try to get crosses into the box. A major strength for Alaves is their defending, especially at home. They’ve long been tough to score against, due to impressive centre-backs and Fernando Pacheco, one of the better goalkeepers in the division. Their main weakness might be in attack. Even though they had a good season last year, they still scored the fourth fewest goals. There isn’t much creativity up front and the strikers they have can be inconsistent.

Target


Avoiding relegation. With a significant downgrade in the dugout and with negative momentum due to the poor finish to last season, Alaves will consider survival to be a good season.

Season Review
2018/2019

№11: Alaves

This season started off brilliantly for Alaves and they were in the European places halfway through a campaign where they were expected to be fighting against relegation, but they fell down the table in the second half. After Abelardo had come in to save the club from what seemed like a certain relegation the year before, the coach had a full pre-season with the team and was in charge for the entire campaign. With his simple 4-4-2 formation, Alaves started the season so well and were as high as second place in the 10th round, while finishing the first half of the season in fifth place. Yet they were the third-worst team in the entire league across the second half of the season. There are a few explanations for this. First, they sold Ibai Gomez, one of their best players, in January. Second, their objective was to avoid relegation so there was less motivation once this was achieved. Third, the coach Abelardo reportedly fell out with directors and this led to tension. All of this combined to make this a bittersweet season for Alaves. Overall, it was a success, but the way it finished leaves a sour taste. For next season, they have hired Asier Garitano as their new coach and this suggests they’ll stick with their defence-first style of football, even if there will be some tactical adjustments. The squad remains strong and is one of the youngest ones in the league, so the future could be bright.
