With the title in the bag and a massive Champions League semi-final next week, Barcelona could rest several key players here. Giving Alaves a chance of picking up points. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the game and if you are after head over to our FanBoosts section and see what is available.
Barcelona Recent Form
With the La Liga title all but sewn up for Barca, the main focus is on Europe and so we’d be reluctant to add them to any midweek accas at the current prices.
Indeed, it was a far from vintage display as they overcame Real Sociedad 2-1 at home on the weekend, while their last two away games have seen them draw 4-4 at Villarreal and 0-0 at basement-dwellers Huesca.
Like the latter, we expect Alaves utilise a containing tactic and indeed their games at home haven’t tended to be the most exciting with 10 of their 16 matches here seeing fewer than three strikes.
Alaves v Barcelona Betting Tips
The low scoring nature of these encounters has resulted in half their matches at the Mendizorrotza Stadium ending all-square as only Valencia have drawn more times in front of their own fans.
What’s more, Alaves will be without the services of their top scorer Johnathan Calleri, so it’s just another reason for them to take a more defensive approach.
A point would edge Barca a step closer their fourth title in five years and it could even stretch their lead with their closest pursuers Atletico facing a tricky fixture against high-flying Valencia on Wednesday.
