Barcelona vs Deportivo Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Barcelona go in search of a fourth league title in five years but the club is undergoing a significant overhaul of the squad. Last season, the club signed players like Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho for more than €100 million each. The transfer spree is certainly not over even as Arturo Vidal became the latest big name to join the club. Barcelona struggled to hit great scoring heights during pre-season and it has surprisingly been the case in most of the recent encounters with Deportivo Alaves, who have conceded more than 2.5 goals only twice in the last five meetings with Barcelona. I would go with a low scoring game for the Catalan club.

Lionel Messi has a sensational record against Alaves after scoring six goals in as many games. In fact, he has failed to score only once in all of his league appearances against Alaves. An excellent price is offered to back Lionel Messi to open the scoring in this match and it would be my pick.

Barcelona to score under 2.5 goals – 11/8

Lionel Messi to score first – 15/8

Barcelona scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Barcelona scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played against Deportivo Alaves

Deportivo Alaves saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played against Barcelona
