Alaves vs Barcelona (By: Isaiah)
Alaves had the double lead against Valladolid at home last Friday night at it was early in the game, however, couldn't keep up with the visitors in a 2:2 draw in the end.
As time progressed, they were too passive and unable to bounce back later on. The side is now winless in last five rounds and in case of failing here, their European race will probably be over.
No doubt that Barcelona will be new champions in LaLiga, being now nine points ahead of the second Atletico. Their primary focus is within the Champions League now, as the side comes from a 2:1 win at home over Real Sociedad, increasing their undefeated streak in official matches to twenty clashes.
Forward Burgui (16/1) is out for the hosts, while Barcelona could rotate some of the main guys here. They continue to miss midfielder Rafinha (5/0) and central back Vermaelen (8/0).
Alaves is in a poor momentum, but still, have chances to get the European exit. Even without it, playing against Barcelona there's no reason not to be fully motivated and try to surprise.
This game doesn't come as a must-win for the guests, not even close to it. However, with the hosts being in need of points, I definitely see Barcelona reacting in attack as well. Two times in a row, a game like at Huesca would be too much for the guests.
