ALA vs BAR Dream11 Prediction for Alaves vs Barcelona La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

ALA vs BAR Dream11: Alaves’ 4-0 defeat away to in-form and top four Real Betis in midweek has extended their winless run of form to eight matches in all competitions and nine in the league. The Basque side begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting tucked inside the bottom three and the relegation places ahead. They now come up against a Barcelona side that suffered a Supercopa semi-final defeat to Real Madrid in Saudi Arabia last week before losing to Athletic in the Copa del Rey after extra time in midweek. Xavi’s side have shown signs of improvement with some evident passing sequences and patterns of play but there remains an ineffectiveness to their play. A low-scoring encounter could be expected in this one that Barca will still expect to edge.

Who will win today’s ALA vs BAR match?

  • Barcelona took on Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey during the week in a repeat of last season’s final and came off second best this time around, losing 3-2 after extra time despite taking the lead through new signing Ferran Torres and going on to equalise in stoppage time of normal time through Pedri.
  • Before the Copa del Rey outing, Barca lost to Real Madrid in the Super Cup with an encouraging display, with Luuk de Jong and Ansu Fati both on target.
    That encouragement was important following a draw with Granada in La Liga and a narrow win over Mallorca.
  • Barcelona will be confident of coming out on top here, despite their midweek misstep, strengthened by their recent returnees from injury and against an Alaves side very low on confidence.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a Barcelona win in this clash is 1.61 as per 1XBET.
