GOALKEEPER

Diego Alves, VAL at SPG: Taking road keepers in cash games on a regular basis is a recipe for disaster, but with the uncertain goaltending situation for Athletic Club and Villarreal's defensive woes at home, I'm really loving Valencia's spot on the road against Sporting Gijon. Defense has been an issue for Valencia, and any time the 18th-place team in the table goes on the road it's easy picking for the hosts, but with Gijon's inability to score goals you have to love Alves here. Cesare Prandelli is taking over the Valencia bench and has preached defensive cohesiveness, which is only good news for Valencia. Gijon have mustered only two goals in their last four games and I doubt that Alves will be troubled as his team turns the page on their rough start to the season.
