Tip Reasoning

  • Barcelona have won five of their eight home games this season, with four of those victories coming by at least two goals.
  • Alaves have three defeats in four away games in La Liga and have failed to score in all of those losses.
  • Barca beat Alaves 5-1 in the corresponding fixture last season.

Barca looking for reaction after Koeman exit

Barcelona begin life without Ronald Koeman as coach when they entertain Alaves on Saturday after the Dutchman was sacked following a dismal 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday.

Former midfielder Xavi is expected to be named as their new boss imminently, although he may not be in charge for this weekend’s fixture with Sergi Barjuan currently the interim boss.

When a club changes manager it is always hard to make a prediction on how they will respond, but we may well get a reaction from the struggling Catalan giants and the visit of Alaves does look like an opportunity to bounce back after two successive defeats.

The visitors have managed three wins in their last five games to move out of the drop zone after losing their first five games of the season. The Babazorros picked up a shock win over Ateltico Madrid at the end of last month, scoring with their only shot on target, but their other two wins have come against teams currently in the bottom six.

Barca may be struggling, but most of their woes have come on the road and at Camp Nou they have just two defeats in eight in all competitions – against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in El Clasico.

The Blaugrana have won five of their home games and four of those wins have come by two or more goals so a home win with a -1 handicap is the main bet for this fixture. Alaves have failed to score in three of their four La Liga trips, and with that in mind a 3-0 win for beleaguered Barca is the correct score selection.
