Alaves play host to Barcelona this Sunday, for its 22nd game of the ongoing Spanish La Liga 2021-22 season.
Barcelona is having one of its worst seasons in many years and is currently sitting in 6th place on the points table. The team has managed to win just 8 out of the 20 games it has played so far and collected 32 points. While the top spot seems highly unlikely at this stage, Barca can still hope for a top 4 finish if they play going forward. Since taking charge in late November last year, Xavi has managed to lend some consistency to the team’s performance and has suffered just 1 defeat. The team would however have liked to have more 3 pointers in their kitty. In the last 5 games, the team has been held to three draws and has won just 2.
Alaves is playing its sixth consecutive La Liga but is in real danger of being relegated down to the Segunda division this time around.
The team has managed to collect just 17 points from the 21 games it has played so far and is in 18th place on the points table. The Babazorros will need to win quite a few games going ahead if they want to keep themselves out of the bottom 3. Coach Luis Mendilibar has failed to find a winning combination of players so far, and as a result, has managed just 4 wins till now. In fact, the last victory for the team came way back at the beginning of November last year.
Match prediction and betting tips for Deportivo Alaves vs F. C. Barcelona La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Estadio de Mendizorroza, Vitoria-Gasteiz, on the 23rd of January, 2022.
Barcelona is having quite a few selection issues with this game, as it misses out on Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, Eric Garcia, and Moussa Wague due to injuries. Gavi will be serving a suspension for this game. On the brighter side, Martin Braithwaite seems to have recovered and is back in training. Barcelona is likely to go with a 4-3-3 formation for this game.
Alaves seem to have a fully fit squad for this game and will be fighting hard to get themselves out of the relegation zone. While they may score a goal, the visitors, although going through a trough, have enough firepower to trump the hosts.
Bet on Barcelona to win.
