Barcelona look for success on the field away at Alaves

Barcelona return to the sight of Aleix Vidal’s horrific leg break last season in a 6-0 win but will be hoping to only replicate the result. Alaves meanwhile will be looking to repeat last season’s victory over the Catalans early on in the campaign at the Camp Nou, only this time on home turf.

Alaves began the season poorly with a dull and desperate away defeat to Leganes at Butarque on the opening day. The lack of attacking threat will be a real concern after a summer of change in Victoria.

Barcelona have also seen a number of big changes across the summer, but they got off to a winning start, albeit unconvincingly, as they saw off Real Betis by two goals to none.

Alaves: Pacheco, Vigaray, Rodrigo Ely, Alexis, Pedraza, Burgui, Manu Garcia, Wakaso, Ibai Gomez, Sobrino, Santos

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Umtiti, Pique, Alba, Busquets, Rakitic, Sergi Roberto, Deulofeu, Alcacer, Messi

Alaves will be missing Hector Hernandez who is suffering from a knee problem and Victor Laguardia who should return from a cruciate ligament injury in December.

Barcelona will be without long term absentees like Luis Suarez and Rafinha as both suffer with knee injuries. It is also too soon for Andres Iniesta who is fighting to overcome a thigh problem and Thomas Vermaelen (leg).

Alaves are looking weaker than ever and will not put up as much of a challenge as Real Betis did last weekend, but don’t expect Barcelona to achieve a cricket score given the lack of world class quality to support Messi in attack.
