Alaves pulled off a shock win at Camp Nou in LaLiga last season, but we’re not expecting lightning to strike twice ahead of Sunday’s clash with Barcelona.
The Catalan giants are unbeaten in Spain’s top flight this term, with a 2-0 triumph at Alaves included in their 17 wins from 20 games.
With only four goals conceded in nine home matches, a seventh clean-sheet victory at this venue is on the cards.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Barcelona did just enough to qualify for the Copa del Rey semi-finals on Thursday night, with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi scoring in a 2-0 win over Espanyol.
New signing Philippe Coutinho came off the bench in the second half, replacing Andres Iniesta on 68 minutes, as the hosts overturned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.
Barca have been in free-scoring form in LaLiga, though, with last week’s 5-0 romp at Real Betis making it 21 goals from six straight wins in this competition.
Messi and Suarez both bagged a brace at Estadio Benito Villamarin, so it’s hard to look beyond the big two when it comes to the first goalscorer market.
As Messi also hit a double against this weekend’s opponents back in August, he gets the nod at 2/1 in our Barcelona vs Alaves betting tips.
A Look At Alaves’ Betting Odds
Alaves secured a 2-1 home win over Valencia in the cup on Wednesday, making the aggregate score 3-3, but they were eventually knocked out on penalties.
El Glorioso started the season with six straight LaLiga losses and tasted defeat in 11 of their first 13 top-flight fixtures.
However, they have recovered well with four wins and a draw from their next seven league games to climb out of the relegation zone.
The two defeats during that period were both away from home, though, going down 1-0 at Atletico Madrid and 2-0 at Athletic Bilbao.
Looking at the Barcelona vs Alaves odds, it is 13/1 for a scorecast of Messi to net first in a 4-0 triumph.
BARCELONA 2-0 Espanyol – Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi
ALAVES 2-1 Valencia – Munir El Haddadi, Ruben Sobrino
Head-to-head: Alaves 0-2 Barcelona, Barcelona 3-1 Alaves, Alaves 0-6 Barcelona, Barcelona 1-2 Alaves
