Alaves spent most of the 2019/20 campaign flirting with relegation, while they suffered some humiliation in the Copa del Rey as they were the first top-flight side to get knocked out. In the end, they did stay in LaLiga after bringing in Juan Ramon Lopez Muniz to coach the final four matches. Lopez Muniz was not kept on, however. Instead, the club opted for former Girona, Sevilla and Espanyol coach Pablo Machin to come in. It’s an intriguing appointment since he usually plays with a back three and it means that either the coach or the squad will have to adapt. The squad has been shaken up quite a bit, but mostly with on-loan players leaving and those who were on loan returning. The one really exciting signing, though, is that of feisty Brazilian forward Deyverson, who adds much-needed depth at the striker position. The strength of this Alaves team is the fact that most of the key starters from last season have remained at the club, with several players having been there for many years. On the other hand, this strength could turn into a weakness if the new coach tries to change up too much. There is a need to improve in both defence and attack, but Alaves also won’t want to move too far away from their counter-attacking roots that have generally served them well over the years.

Target


Avoiding relegation. With Alaves having come close last season and with Pablo Machin having been one of the coaches at relegated Espanyol last season, both club and coach will be content with simply staying up.

Season Review
2019/2020

№16: Alaves

Alaves flirted with relegation, but ultimately saved up so they’ve achieved their objective. 2019/20 was always going to be more of a struggle for Alaves after losing Abelardo as coach and his replacement Asier Garitano arrived after failing at Real Sociedad. After starting with a win, Alaves didn’t win any of their next five and never again moved any higher than 12th. They even suffered the humiliation of being the first top-flight team knocked out of the Copa del Rey when they lost to fourth-tier Real Jaen in their first Copa del Rey match of the season. That saw Garitano’s standing take a bit of a knock, but Alaves remained just outside the relegation zone in the league thanks to their strike duo of Lucas Perez and Joselu. When the coronavirus pause hit, Alaves were in 14th and seemed like they’d be fine. Yet, a run of five defeats in a row saw Garitano sacked with four rounds to go and Juan Ramon Lopez Muniz was jettisoned in. In addition to losses to Real Madrid and Barcelona, Lopez Muniz oversaw a draw with Getafe and a win over Real Betis and that proved to be enough for survival. As Alaves plan for next year, they’ll be looking to make improvements to the squad while there will also be question marks over Lopez Muniz. Even if he does stay on and starts next season his future won’t be safe as Alaves’ ownership are known for their ruthlessness when it comes to coaches.
