Blaugrana’s looking to do the double over the hosts

Deportivo Alaves are currently in the middle of the pack in the LaLiga table. They have managed to earn 26 points after playing out 22 league games for the 2023-24 season. Los Babazorros have already done the travelling to face FC Barcelona this season. That match ended in a 2-1 defeat.

FC Barcelona are currently in the final UEFA Champions League qualifying spot. Xavi’s men have managed to total 47 points on the league table after the same number of games as their upcoming hosts. With a win already in the bag, they will be looking to do the double over Alaves in the league.

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 3 February 2024 at 5:30 PM UK (11:00 PM IST)

Location: Mendizorroza

Form

Alaves (in all competitions): W-W-L-W-W

Barcelona (in all competitions): W-L-L-W-W

Players to Watch

Samu Omorodion (Alaves)

The 19-year-old teenager started as the main striker last game against Almeria. Samu Omorodion ended up scoring two goals. His team won the game 3-0 and head coach Luis García should trust Omorodion to fire again.

İlkay Gundogan (Barcelona)

İlkay Gündoğan has probably been the most effective transfer for FC Barcelona in the last few years. Arriving for free from Manchester City at the start of the 2023-24 season, Gündoğan has thrived here. The midfielder has 4 goals and 4 assists in the league to show for as well.

Match Facts

  • The hosts have 3 wins and a draw in the last 4 league games. And last two have been victories with a clean sheet each
  • After a 5-3 defeat to Villarreal, Xavi and Co responded positively win a 1-0 win over Osasuna
  • In their last meeting, Barca won the game 2-1

Injury & Team News

No trouble in the talent management department of the hosts. Omorodion is expected to headline his side after a brace last time out.

In the visiting camp, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Alejandro Balde, Marcos Alonso and Gavi seem unquestionably out of the game. Sergi Roberto and Raphinha are also recovering from injuries. Inigo Martinez’s availability is a thing of time and recovery.

Head to Head

Total Matches – 46

Alaves wins – 7

Barcelona wins – 32

Draws – 7

Predicted Lineup

Alaves predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):

Sivera (GK); Gorosabel, Marin, Duarte, Lopez; Blanco, Guevara; Vicente, Guridi, Rioja; Omorodion

Barcelona predicted lineup (4-3-3):

Pena (GK); Kounde, Araujo, Cubarsi, Cancelo; Gundogan, Pedri, de Jong; Yamal, Lewandowski, Torres

Match Prediction for Alaves vs Barcelona

Barcelona have already got the better of Alaves this league term. But Xavi’s men had to depend on teenager Vitor Roque’s goal off the bench to get all three points last game. Barca would want more from their first team in this game. Still, a win for the visitors could come in very quickly.

Prediction: Alaves 0-2 Barcelona
