Sport Betting Tip: Alavés - FC Barcelona La Liga
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Alavés - FC Barcelona La Liga
Alaves have a poor H2H record against the Catalan giants, however, they are coming off an away win at Valladolid. They face a Barcelona side , who will be coming off a high stakes Champions League game in Turin against Juventus on Wednesday. This will be second game against challenging opposition in succession after El Clasico on the weekend. Barcelona last lost three games in a row in La Liga in '16 around the time they were involved in a CL tie against Atletico Madrid. The AH (+1.25, Alaves) perhaps appeals more as Juventus & Barcelona are involved in a weak group where qualification seems assured, it is merely a battle who finishes top. Barcelona have faced Juventus befpre midweek & then won away on the weekend in La Liga. However, they will be facing energetic, if limited, opponents. This is a Barcelona team in transition, new manager, the emergence of Fati, but with an unsettled Messi & squad at odds with the Barca hierarchy.
Barca managed to take a big win away to juve at cl last midweek and proved that they are back in wins in competitive matches, has to win this to close the gap from the top, away win expected.
Barcelona will be hoping to ricochet back from a disastrous misfortune to Real Madrid when they take on Deportivo Alaves at Estadio Mendizorrotza on Saturday night. Barca have been battling in La Liga since the time the club bosses sold a few first-group regulars, however Leo Messi and Co. are still observed as hot top choices to beat Alaves away from public scrutiny. Alaves suit Barcelona, and you should remember that the Catalan goliaths developed victorious in every one of their last experiences with the Basque outfit.
Antoine Griezmann is broadly expected to re-visitation of the beginning XI after he came as a substitute for Anssumane Fati in "El Clasico". Gerard Pique, then again, gets back from the Champions League boycott. Alaves did well to beat Valladolid out and about at the end of the week, yet it must be noticed that Nacho was shipped off for La Pucela after only 20 minutes. At any rate, the Basque outfit face a tough undertaking in Saturday's standoff.
