Barcelona vs. Alaves Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

With El Clasico played just days prior to this game, can Barcelona muster the energy to welcome Alaves to the Camp Nou? The visitors might hope for a depleted Barca, but they’ll still need to play to their very best too.

Past Meetings

The Catalan giants have won seven out of the last eight games against Alaves, with the away side recording a surprise victory against Barca in September 2016.

Team News

The home side have no new injury worries, but may have some fresh concerns coming out of the Clasico on Wednesday. Only Ousmane Dembele and Arthur are out through long-term injuries.

The away side have no injuries worries expect for long-term absentee Tomas Pina, who fractured his leg at the beginning of the month.

Barcelona vs. Alaves Preview and Predictions

A lot depends on how will Barcelona play against arch-rivals Real in El Clasico in the days leading up to this game. The amount of energy expanded during these games could play to Alaves’ advantage – though it is 19.50 for Alaves to get a shock away win. The draw is available at 8.50 and would itself be a turn-up for the books.

On the other hand, if Barca lose, they will be laser-focused on winning the following game, which means Alaves could be in for a difficult occasion. Barca are 1.14 for what should – barring a disaster or a miracle – be a home victory.

It would be foolish to bet against Barca, especially at Camp Nou, but Alaves won’t make it easy for them, regardless of how El Clasico goes on Wednesday. A double chance bet may be the way to go, with the draw or the away win at 5.75.

Recommended Bets

Barca to win at 1.14

It’s hard to see past a home victory. Even if the Catalans rest players, surely they will provet o be too much for struggling Alaves.

Correct score 4-0 at 10.00

Barcelona have scored 12 goals in their last 3 home games. Expect Lionel Messi and co to continue to score bucket loads at home.
