Barcelona are ending what has been a hugely disappointing La Liga campaign with a visit to Estadio Mendizorroza to face Alaves on Sunday.

The Blaugrana had won eight of the last 11 La Liga titles but ceded their crown to fierce rivals Real Madrid after a 2-1 at Camp Nou by Osasuna.

Quique Setien's men still have the Champions League to play this season, but they will be extremely deflated after such a disheartening end to their domestic campaign which has seen them win just four of their last eight games.

Latest Alaves vs Barcleona odds
The Basques achieved their first flight status on Thursday evening with a vital 2-1 victory at Real Betis and they will be extremely relieved to get into the last game of the campaign without having to claim points.

They are priced 9/2 (5.50) with bet365 to end the season on a high with a win, with Barca offered at 53/100 (1.53) and the draw at 10/3 (4.33 ).

Alaves vs Barcelona team news
Barca are set to do without injured French trio Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti, while Gerard Pique, Junior Firpo and Ivan Rakitic are all suspended which could lead the young players to see a few minutes.

The organizers will miss central defender Rodrigo Ely following his red card in Thursday night's win at Real Betis, while goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco remains sidelined due to an injury.

\ Preview Alaves v Barcelona
With nothing in the game on either side this risks being a strange affair and Alaves is one side that has caused trouble for the Catalans in the past.

It will take a huge effort from Barca to wake up from the disappointment of giving up their title and we are unlikely to see much intensity in their display.

Three of the last five meetings between these teams have been scoreless at the break, while Barca have failed to score in the first half of two of their last three games and another low-key 45-minute opening seems likely. .

Alaves have struggled hard for the goals themselves and with nothing to play they are unlikely to contribute to an opening with high scores.

Alaves vs Barcelona Tips and Predictions
The price of 7/5 (2.40) for the game to be a half-time draw seems attractive, while less than 0.5 goals in the first half at 12/5 (3.40) could be a wise option for a value bet.
