Alaves vs Barcelona
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Barcelona is so close to their treble dream. But still, certain formalities remain. They need to seal in the league title as fast as they can, which will provide them with ample rest before their awaited Champions League semifinal tie against Liverpool. Most probably, a major chunk of Barca starters will be rested for the Levante tie, with the CL in mind, and it makes this tie even more interesting.
Alaves is currently just below the final European spot, and at this crucial point of the season, it’s almost cruel that they have to deal with Barca. Alaves needs to make up a difference of just one point from the next six match-days, but competition in the league is at an all-time high.

Alaves vs Barcelona Prediction
Alaves is winless in their last four ties, and in 11 of their last 14. At home, they remained winless in their last four attempts as well. In the meantime, Barcelona is slowly transforming themselves into the best team in Europe. They were unbeaten in 19 of their last 20 ties, and in their last ten on the road.
H2h ties show that Barca has been a far superior side than Alaves for the past many years. The current Spanish Champions won the last five meetings and ten of the last eleven as well. On top of that, Barca scored two or more goals in ten of these last eleven fixtures, and in the last four at this venue. They also won these last four matches at this stadium, and have not conceded a single goal in the last six encounters.
With Barca’s decision to wrap up the title as fast as they can, and with Leo Messi’s determination to defend his Golden Boot, expect the table-toppers to record a huge win this Tuesday.
