Barcelona vs Alaves – Copa del Rey Final
Saturday 27th May 20:30, Vicente Calderón
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Barcelona missed out on the La Liga title, but still could rescue their season by lifting the Copa del Rey against Alaves tomorrow.
The Catalonains head into the game as the huge favourites to win this competition for the a record breaking 29th time, while Alaves prepare to claim their first ever domestic cup competition, having not even made it to a single final before this one.
Both teams ended the season strongly, and I hope that means we are in for a competitive match. Barcelona won all of their last six games and are the clear form favourites ahead of kick-off, while Alaves were also unbeaten during that period with three wins and three draws to their name.
Barcelona might be the huge favourites with the bookies, but they are going to be without Suarez and Sergi Roberto, both of whom are suspended for the final.
With Messi leading the line its still hard to see Barcelona losing tomorrow, and my money is going on the favourites to win with both teams finding the back of the net and Alaves’ Brazilian striker Deyverson to pick up the first booking of the game.

Barcelona vs Alaves Stats
These two sides have met 28 times before, and earlier in the season Alaves caused a huge shock when they took all 3 points against Barcelona in their own back yard.
The last meeting between the pair went as expected though, with Barcelona getting their revenge and some, with a huge 6-0 win in Alaves.
The deadly trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar were all on the scoreboard as hosts Alaves were dominated from start to finish, with four of the six goals arriving in the second half and one coming from an Alaves player as Alexis put the ball into the back of his own net.
