Meanwhile, Granada make the trip to Mendizorrotza sitting just four points off seventh position, a scenario which should see them push for a maximum return against their relegation-threatened opponents.
After last season's 10th-placed finish, Granada boss Diego Martinez would have been delighted with his side entering lockdown in contention to earn a spot in next season's Europa League.
Although that still remains the case, Granada now sit in 10th position after failing to win any of their last four games in La Liga.
The fact that three of those fixtures came against opponents below them in the table will only add to Martinez's disappointment, and he must now find a solution ahead of an important trip to another struggling team.
One part of Nazaries' game which has failed in recent outings is their play in the final third, with only one first-half goal coming in five games.
On the positive side, two of Roberto Soldado's four strikes for the season have come since the resumption, suggesting that the former Tottenham Hotspur man could emerge as a key man over the coming weeks.
From Alaves' perspective, they will view this contest as the ideal opportunity to end a losing streak which has now stretched to three games.
To their credit, they gave a respectable account of themselves in a 2-1 defeat at Atletico Madrid on Saturday, managing to keep their in-form opponents at bay for almost an hour.
However, with their last-minute consolation goal coming from the spot, Alaves have now gone three encounters without finding the back of the net from open play.
Despite the understandable negativity at Mendizorrotza, Asier Garitano's team remain nine points clear of the drop zone with just six matches remaining.
Alaves La Liga form: DLWLLL
Granada La Liga form: DWDLDL
After making an immediate impact against Eibar, Soldado will expect to feature in the Granada starting lineup.
Victor Camarasa may also come back into the team should Garitano opt to freshen up his midfield.
Alaves possible starting lineup:
Pacheco; Aguirregabiria, Tachi, Ely, Marin; Mendez, Abdallahi, Fejsi, Camarasa, Vidal; Joselu
Granada possible starting lineup:
Escandell; Diaz, Vallejo, Sanchez, Neva; Herrera, Eteki; Puertas, Vico, Machis; Soldado
We say: Alaves 1-2 Granada
While both clubs have been poor since the resumption, we expect a lively encounter, one which could benefit the home side who are in danger of accepting the safety of mid-table. Although Alaves have home advantage, they are playing with an added pressure on their shoulders which could hinder their performance.
