- Updated: 18th August 2018
Barcelona vs Alavés – La Liga :Barcelona and Alavés have a meeting scheduled for this Saturday night in Camp Nou
on a match counting towards the first round of La Liga.
Barcelona finished in 1st place of La Liga with 93 points conquered, thanks to a record of 28 victories, 9 draws and 1 loss.
Their goals’ ratio tells us that they counted with 99 goals scored and 29 goals conceded, presenting an average of 3.4 goals per match.
It was playing in front of their own crowd that the Blaugrana have gotten the most points, recording 16 wins on the 19 rounds they’ve played at home.
The Catalan side has played 4 friendlies, getting 1 victory, 1 draw and 2 losses. On their first official match, Barcelona have beaten Sevilla by 2-1 and conquered the Spanish Super Cup.

In terms of goals, they counted with 40 goals scored and 50 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.4 goals per match.

The team has played 8 friendly encounters on this pre-season, recording 2 victories, 4 draws and 2 losses.
Barcelona vs Alavés – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Catalan side has maintained practically the entire team from last season, adding some good players like Vidal or Arthur,
still counting with the better adaptation of some reinforcements that had arrived in January like Coutinho or Dembele (he scored the winning goal against Sevilla).
Therefore, I expect an even stronger Barcelona than last year, be it domestically or on the European commitments, and I believe they will start in the best possible fashion already against Alavés.
I see a one-way match here, with Barcelona being very offensive and dangerous on the constant creation of goal scoring chances, which makes me believe there is still value in exploring the corners’ market in favour of the hosts.
Alavés, when they play away from home, is normally crushed on the corners’ match-up, especially on these toughest trips.
Already last season, on their visits to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla, Villarreal and some others, we’ve seen the favourite team battering the Basque side in terms of corners.
