BAR vs ALA Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Barcelona vs Alaves Laliga Live Score October 31


BAR vs ALA Dream11: A 1-0 defeat away to Rayo Vallecano in midweek, via a Radamel Falcao first-half winner, has led to the sacking of Ronald Koeman. Managerless Barcelona have been lacking in cohesion since the Dutchman was appointed but the Catalans’ off-the-field crisis remains and they remain a generally poor squad that could slip into the bottom-half of the table after this weekend. They come up against an Alaves side that have been involved in low-scoring matches throughout the campaign. The Basque side have had back-to-back wins and three in their last five matches but they have scored just five goals in their opening ten matches. Barca will come into this as the favourites but it could be a long, drawn out, low-scoring affair.

Date: October 31, Sunday
Kick-Off: 12:30 AM (IST)
Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona

FOR: Memphis Depay, Joselu

Likely Winner:

  • Barcelona have dominated headlines this week after sacking Ronald Koeman following their midweek defeat away to Rayo Vallecano – their third defeat in a row on the road. Former midfielder Xavi is expected to take over shortly but not in time for this game.
  • Alaves are trending in the other direction, picking up a huge three points last time out, defeating Elche thanks to Mamdou Loum’s winner. Javi Calleja’s men now have back-to-back wins under their belt having defeated Cadiz in their previous outing, and that has seen them climb out of the bottom three for the first time this season.
  • Even with their upturn in form, Alaves are likely to struggle here against a Barca side who will feel some responsibility for Koeman’s departure.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a Barcelona win in this clash is 2.76.
