Unbeaten in their last 2, Alaves have seen an upturn in form when they needed it the most. The only question that lies with them now is why it took so long and if they can reproduce this next season.

At home, Alaves have faired a lot better in the league in comparison to their away record. Looking at the table in just home games, they stand in 13th position but have relegation form (18th) in the away table.


Barcelona Review – Can the jaded Catalans recoup in time for the Champions League?

Barcelona. By their elite standards, this season has been nothing short of a failure. Even if they do manage to go on and win the Champions League. Their bad performances and worst squad in recent years will be the biggest talking point at the end of the season.

The fact they lost on Thursday against Osasuna only added to the huge slump the team ae in currently. If a moment to describe the current mood within the Catalan camp was evident. Lionel Messi’s reaction after scoring the equaliser in that match was a huge implication of the frustration and disappointment of Barca this season.

If you’ve managed to watch Barcelona this season, the problem has been the same for quite some time, and that is Messi. We all know how great Messi is and the wonders he can produce on the football pitch.

The problem lies where he is so good, there’s an over-reliance on him to produce for the team. Scoring 23 goals and creating 20 assists, that’s a percentage of 53% of all Barcelomns goals this season in the league.

There is a very good chance Barca coach Setien could shake up the team massively in order to shift focus and save players for the Champions League. But after their dismal season, the players should be looking to prove a point.

The reverse fixture was 4-1 to Barcelona, however, that was under very different times and the players were all in a different mindset. That result will be long gone out of the heads of both teams leading up to this match.

Key Facts – Deportivo Alaves vs Barcelona Betting Tip

  • Messi only scored 4 goals away from home
  • Barcelona lost 5 games away this season
  • Joselu and Perez have 22 goals between them


If Alaves are to get anything from this game they will need their two talismans in Joselu and Lucas Perez who have 22 goals and 7 assists between them. Single-handedly they have been able to keep up Alaves in the league.

The stumbling block with Alaves has also been their discipline record. In their last 10 matches, Deportivo has seen their players receive 4 red cards. A worrying sight when playing against the likes of Griezmann, Suarez etc.

The shining light for Alaves is the chance that Setien may choose to play a series of secondary players and those on the periphery on the first 11 because the league is over, the club may decide to rest players in order to avoid injuries with the upcoming champions league coming up.

A 2-1 win is not out of question for this Alaves side and with the nice 17/2 odds, its worth a punt on the last day of the season.
