FC BARCELONA VS ALAVES
Can Barca get one step closer towards winning the title with a home win?
After the blood-tingling win against their local rivals in Copa del Rey now Barca should focus on their league run. Alaves who just got evicted from the copa del rey quarterfinals by Barca’s semi-finalist Valencia, now travel to Camp Nou. Alaves are really struggling to find their winning ways and are very much a part of the relegation battle. They Just need to hold on to their shape if they really want to cause problems.
Coutinho after his promising start in the last match is likely to start for the first time in La Liga. Yerry Mina is also expected to make his debut. It’s going to be an intriguing match on Sunday night.
