La liga opener for Barcelona is against D.Alaves. After having such an impressive pre season series of games. They look a more stronger side then last year. With the addition of Arthur, Malcom, Lenglet and Aturo Vidal, they have an exceptional bench and an exceptional starting 11. D. Alaves tho just edged Relegation last year and this year too, they would be looking to avoid relegation. Barcelona of course will be looking for a good start in La Liga and their main objective will be winning La Liga and the Champions league. These are two teams with extremely different objectives this season.
Barcelona, with the money they’ve spent this summer will definitely be trying to make the most out of this season. They’ve won the Super Copa De Espana against Seville and also won the Joan Gamper Trophy against Boca Juniors. These both were great victories and they showed the depth of Barcelona this season. While this will be the first competitive match for D. ALAVES. So let’s break this match down.
Barcelona’s form is excellent. They’ve already won 2 trophies namely the joan gamper trophy and the Copa de Espana. So now they Will be looking to grab some more trophies this season. The Barcelona Manager Valverde looks like he’s figured out how to manage Barca properly and we all know Barcelona know how to come out of tricky situations. Back in September 2016, Alaves claimed a shock 2-1 win in Barcelona – which remarkably remains the Blaugrana’s last home league defeat – whilst Barca scored two late goals last season in this fixture to win by a 2-1 scoreline. But Barcelona have mostly always found a way to defeat Alaves.
Their players including Coutinho, Malcom, Pique are all on form. The Barca Captain Lionel Messi is also on form. But Luis Suarez looked like he’s a bit unfit after the holidays. Aturo Vidal also didn’t quite surprise anyone. But all the players will be looking to impress the fans and the manager in today’s clash.
Alaves will be playing their first competitive match of the season against Barcelona, bad luck I know. But they will be pleased if they at least get a draw. But Barcelona at home are always dangerous and they’ve not lost a home match since 2016. While Alaves lost many of their matches at home. ALaves have brought in some names this summer however that will strengthen their squad. Since returning to Spain’s top flight, Alaves have finished ninth and 14th, comfortably avoiding a relegation battle on both occasions. They averaged a goal a game away from home last season and the Basque Country outfit always seem up for this particular road trip.
Manager Abelardo has bolstered his attacking options by completing a permanent deal for powerful striker John Guidetti, who impressed on loan from January onwards.Borja Baston has come in from Swansea after a decent stint with Malaga and Patrick Twumasi is a useful recruit from Astana. So while everyone thinks Barcelona will get the win, it won’t be as simple for them as you think.
Barcelona vs Alaves Prediction will go in favour of Barcelona. Barcelona will secure a victory in this match to kick start la liga but as I said, it won’t be easy at all and Barcelona will win 3-1.
