Best Tip: Barcelona to win

The stands should be full at Juegos del Mediterráneo on Thursday night but, unfortunately, we predict the majority of those in attendance will be leaving the place 90 minutes later rather less happy than they arrived. The statistics below, including head-to-head (H2H) records and recent form, are all pointing towards an away win in the win / draw / win market, with visitors Barcelona getting the better of hosts Almeria. It will be a tough one to take for home manager José Mel Pérez but, in the meantime, we'd strongly recommend making the most of best bookmaker odds of 1.44 to back the away win.
