Deportivo Alaves vs Barcelona Match Analysis and Prediction

After a disappointing end to the El Clasico, Barcelona will be keen on returning to winning ways this weekend as they travel to take on Deportivo Alaves. The match schedules for Saturday at the Estadio de Mendizorroza with kickoff at 11 pm.

Ronald Koeman suffered his first 3-1 El Clasico defeat for the Catalans last weekend against rivals Real Madrid. The Catalans are currently 12th on the table while their opponents sit 15th with seven points from their last seven matches.

It marks the fifth season for Alaves in the La Liga since their promotion. Their last season ended with the side 16th on the table with only three points off the relegation side. The side started their new season with four straight defeats. However, two wins and one draw saw the side earn seven points.

Pablo Machin head into the match with good form, especially after taking two wins from their last three matches. It includes a 2-0 win to struggling side Real Vallavoid. The side has a poor record against the Catalans with seven consecutive losses.

Recent news from Camp Nou comes with the resignation of President Josep Maria Bartomeu with the entire board of directors. It has been a rough start of the season, but a 2-0 win against Juventus in the Champions League might be what Koeman needs to come back to winning ways.
