Alaves vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview

Alaves have seen their hopes of a place in next season’s Europa League slip away – they have not won in five league games and have slipped to eighth in the standings.

Barcelona have recovered form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning 16 of their last 20, including a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad

They have kept 13 clean sheets in their last 21 matches as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons and are now nine points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Unsurprisingly, the visitors are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 6/10 with an Alaves victory priced at 17/4 and the draw available at 16/5.

This fixture tends to produce lots of goals with 18 flying in across the last five meetings, so over 3.5 goals at 7/4 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 17/4.

A ‘double chance’ on Alaves to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 13/10 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 2/13.

If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 8/5 while Barca to win both halves is at 17/5.
