Barcelona v Deportivo Alaves Preview, Premiership, 10th September 2016

Barcelona have started their new season in emphatic fashion and must be scratching their heads as to why they are not currently top of the la liga table having won both of their opening games 1-0 and 6-2.

The reason why they are not sitting pretty at the top where they are used to being is because Las Palmas have shocked the Spanish league by also winning their opening two games with incredible score lines of 5-1 and 4-2 !

Obviously, the Barcelona team will see this game on Saturday night as a real chance to set things right and re-claim their familiar top spot with a victory over newly promoted Deportivo Alaves.

Deportivo Alaves have done ok in their opening two games having picked up a 0-0 draw at home against Sporting Gijon and a remarkable 1-1 draw away against power houses Atletico Madrid and they will no doubt be right up for this game and confident of coming away with at least something from the match.

Barcelona Team News :

The hosts will be without Andre Gomes as he continues to recover from a foot injury, Lionel Messi and Andre Iniesta wil both under take a late fitness test but both players are expected to be passed fit and be available for the game. Neymar is also back in contention and should start up front alongside Suarez.

Deportivo Alaves Team News :

The visitors continue to be without Zouhair Feddal as he continues to receive treatment for an ankle problem and Aleksandar Pantic is also a major doubt and looks unlikely to feature. Other than these two players though, their manager has a full squad to choose his starting lineup from.

Barcelona v Deportivo Alaves Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday night’s game from the Nou Camp Stadium will become the 17th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Barcelona have won 11 times overall with 7 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Deportivo Alaves have managed to secure 3 victories overall with 1 of those having came away from home and although not many people will be expecting them to record win number two at the Nou Camp, their players will almost certainly believe they can.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows Barcelona having dominated proceedings having won all five previous encounters and it would take a brave person to bet against them making it win number six come Saturday night.

37 of those Goals have came in the 8 previous matches played at the Nou Camp Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 4.63

Based on both sets of data shown above the information does seem to strongly suggest that this game will see at least three or four goals scored on Saturday night and Over 3.5 Goals looks a good choice here.

Barcelona v Deportivo Alaves Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Barcelona will look at this game as one that could see them claim top spot in the league, but will be fully aware that their opponents will not be an easy team to beat after holding Atletico Madrid to a draw.

However, with the likes of Messi, Saurez and Neymar the hosts do have an abundance of firepower up front and the Deportivo Alaves defence looks to be in for a very busy night.

Many people will be looking at the visitors to try and score at least one goal as the popular both team to score and Barcelona to win betting market will no doubt attract quite a bit of interest for this match.

Barcelona are a powerhouse when playing in front of their home fans at the Nou Camp stadium and I fully expect them to deliver on Saturday night with a one or two goal victory.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Neymar Jnr to Score and Barcelona to Win as with the Brazilian striker now fresh from his return from holiday he will be eager to get back to doing what he does best, which is scoring goals.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Luis Suarez to open up the goalscoring in this match as he has looked as good as ever in the opening few matches of the league season so far and with players like Neymar and Messi alongside him he will no doubt get more than a few chances to put the ball in the back of the net.
