THE PREDICTION

Barcelona are closing in on the title and they will be keen to wrap it up as quickly as possible to focus on the Champions League. They face an Alaves side whose form has dipped in recent weeks and while they may hold Barca for a spell, the visitors' quality will eventually shine through to win.
