Tip Alavés - Barcelona
Prediction published on January 21, 2022 at 3:07 AM - Modified on January 21, 2022 at 4:07 AM
Alaves entertain Barcelona at the Estadio Mendizorrotza in this Matchday 22 encounter in La Liga. The hosts are in 18th position with 17 points while the visitors are in 6th position with 32 points. Alaves are in serious danger of relegation as they are three points from safety and have played an extra match. The most worrying aspect for Alaves is that they have not had a league win in eight matches with three draw and five losses. Alaves have only one win in their last 11 matches across all competitions. They are unbeaten in their last three home matches but these have been three draws. These draws were the first time in 15 matches that Alaves had drawn a match. They have not won against Barcelona in their last 11 matches with the last win coming in 2016.
Barcelona have had a tough few week losing twice in two Cup competitions. They lost to Real Madrid in the Super Cup and were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Atletico Bilboa. The only silver lining for them is that now they can focus all their energies on their league campaign. They are five matches unbeaten in the league with three draws and two losses. Barcelona are just a point behind fourth placed Atletico Madrid who occupy the last Champions League position and victory in this match could see them enter the top four. They are unbeaten in their last six away matches in the league.
Key points Alavés - Barcelona
Alaves have scored just one goal in their last three league matches.
Three of their last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
In only two of their ten home matches has there been over 2.5 goals scored.
Three of Barcelona’s last four away league matches has produced under 2.5 goals.
They have six draws in away matches this season which is the second highest in the league.
Conclusion Alavés - Barcelona
Alaves have been on a very poor run of results but they tend to have a good defensive record in their home matches, only once conceding over a single goal in their last eight matches at home. Barcelona have struggled to win away from home and we expect this match to be a very tight affair with few goals therefore we are backing the under 2.5 goals option.
