On Sunday, November 12th, Barcelona plays La Liga at Estadio Olimpico against visiting Alaves.
When Barcelona plays Alaves within La Liga on Sunday, they will be looking to get back to winning ways. The Catalan giants lost 1-0 to Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, which meant they might have needed two more games to advance to the Champions League’s round of 16. In addition to losing the El Clasico at the culmination of the previous month, Xavi’s team defeated Real Sociedad during La Liga this past weekend, giving them a total of 27 points and a third-place finish in the standings. At this point in the campaign, Barcelona would have preferred to be closer to the top of La Liga, therefore a victory over Alaves on Sunday in Catalonia would be the only result they want to get. Girona are currently leading the way in Spain, even if Real Madrid is currently ahead of Barcelona by a few points. Although it’s assumed that they will eventually withdraw from the title race, Barcelona needs to focus on winning their own games right now.
Alaves advanced to La Liga during the playoffs after placing 4th within the Segunda Division standings the previous year. They are not enjoying the greatest of circumstances and are predicted to have difficulty staying alive within the top flight this campaign. With 12 points from 12 games, Luis García Plaza’s team is now 5 points from the drop zone in 14th place in the La Liga standings. Almeria, with 3 points after 12 games, is the bottom team. Alaves will be coming off a 1-0 league road loss to Almeria going towards this weekend’s La Liga matchup versus Barcelona. Following a 1-0 loss to Deportivo Murcia within the Copa del Rey and a 2-1 triumph against Atletico Madrid in the presence of their own supporters in the league.
