Barcelona vs Almeria: Predictions, tips & betting odds

6:23 PM MYT 04/11/2022
The Blaugrana have been in spectacular form at home in the league and that should continue against their struggling opponents this weekend

Barcelona welcome Almeria to the Camp Nou on Saturday evening in what is an important La Liga clash for Xavi Hernandez's men.

The Catalans will move ahead of leaders Real Madrid with a win, as Los Blancos do not play until Monday, and Barca will surely relish the chance to put pressure on their title rivals.

The game will also be a significant event for Barca as Gerard Pique plays his final game in front of the Camp Nou crowd and the side will be desperate to give the centre-back a winning send-off.

Barcelona vs Almeria latest odds

The Catalans are yet to concede a goal at home this season in La Liga and have won five consecutive matches in front of their own fans following their 0-0 draw with Rayo Vallecano on the opening weekend of the campaign.

A home win is offered at 1/8 (1.12) with bet365 while Almeria are available at 14/1 (15.00) to claim what would be a historic victory given they have lost every match they have ever contested at the Camp Nou.

The draw is priced at 9/1 (10.00).

Barcelona vs Almeria first goal scorer odds

Robert Lewandowski is the shortest priced player to score first and the Polish forward will return to the starting eleven having been rested for the midweek Champions League win against Viktoria Plzen.

Lewandowski is available at 2/1 (3.00) to break the deadlock with Ansu Fati at 9/2 (5.50) and Ousmane Dembele at 11/2 (6.50).

In his farewell match in front of the home fans, Pique is offered at 14/1 (15.00) while for Almeria, former Atletico Madrid forward Leo Baptistao is priced at 18/1 (19.00).

Barcelona vs Almeria preview

Domestically Barca continue to pick up points and last weekend they capitalised on Real Madrid slipping up at home to Girona.

The Blaugrana boast an exceptional home record and their five consecutive Camp Nou wins contrast starkly with Almeria's five successive defeats on the road.

The side from Andalusia have scored just three goals in six away matches this term and against the best defensive unit in the division they are likely to draw another blank.

Barca will dominate possession and are likely to be able to rack up another high-scoring home win against the side with the worst away record in La Liga.

Barcelona vs Almeria tips and predictions

The hosts can be backed at 8/11 (1.72) to win to nil while they are also offered at 4/5 (1.80) to win with -2 goal handicap.
