Match Facts

  1. Alavés have failed to win in their last 10 LaLiga games against Barcelona (D2 L8) - conceding 3.1 goals on average in these matches - since a win 2-1 away from home in September 2016. This game was Sergio Busquets’ 250th appearance for Barcelona in the competition.
  2. Barcelona have avoided defeat in their last seven away LaLiga games against Alavés (W4 D3), keeping a clean sheet in six of them; their longest unbeaten run at Mendizorrotza in the top-flight.
  3. Barcelona have lost only one of their last 21 away LaLiga games against Basque sides (W14 D6), 0-1 v Athletic in August 2019, after losing six of their previous 13 (W4 D3).
  4. Barcelona have won only two of their last 10 away games in LaLiga (D6 L2), 1-3 against Villarreal in November 2021 and 0-1 against Mallorca in January this year, after winning 12 of their previous 14 away games in the competition (D1 L1).
  5. Alavés have drawn each of their last three LaLiga home games. They have never done it in four games in a row at Mendizorroza in their history in the competition.
  6. Barcelona have used 12 different U-21 players in LaLiga this season (same as Stuttgart), a total only surpassed by Saint-Étienne (14) and Rennes (13) in the big five European leagues in 2021/2022.
  7. Alavés’ Luis Rioja has only scored five goals in 84 LaLiga appearances but he has scored three of them against Barcelona, netting in his last three games against them in the competition – he could become in the fourth Spanish player to score in four LaLiga appearances in a row against Barcelona in the 21st Century, after David Villa and Fernando Torres, both in 2006, and Rubén Castro in 2012.
  8. Barcelona have scored their last three goals via headers in LaLiga, two of them by Luuk de Jong, after scoring with a header in only three of their previous 26 goals in the competition.
  9. Alavés’ José Luis Mendilibar has won only one of his 23 LaLiga games as a manager against Barcelona (D3 L19), and he has lost more games against them than against any other opponent in the top-flight (19).
  10. Alavés have not won any of their first three LaLiga games under José Luis Mendilibar (D2 L1). The last Alaves manager who failed to win his first four games in the competition was Pablo Machín in 2020/21 season (D1 L3).
