epl predictions this weekend

Date and time: October 31, 8pm

Location: Mendizorrotza Stadium

Barcelona will be looking to make up lost ground at the top of La Liga on Saturday when they travel to Alaves. Defeat in El Clasico to Real Madrid was a bitter blow, but they bounced back to beat Juventus in the Champions League after controversial president Josep Maria Bartomeu and the entire board resigned.

Against an Alaves side who have only won twice in their last six games, and just once at home, they should really fancy their chances.

Lionel Messi’s long wait for a goal in open play goes on, and Alaves have kept three clean sheets in six games. It could be a low scoring affair here, and we think you should look at BTTS – no at 19/20 with Bet365. But we think Barça will win.

Why are we backing Barcelona here?

They need to, it is as simple as that. They also showed at Juventus that they can turn up and ease to victory away from home.

There is real value in backing a draw HT/Barcelona win FT at 3/1 with Bet365.

What other markets are worth a look?

We like the look of Ansu Fati to score anytime on his 18th birthday after his goal against Real Madrid last week. That is at 11/8 with Bet365.

Odds correct as of 30/10/2020
