Barcelona vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga

Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona.

Barcelona some way or another figured out how to return from behind and edge past Sevilla 2-1 to lift the Spanish Super Cup trophy and they'll come into Saturday's La Liga opener against Deportivo Alaves in high spirits. 

The Catalans got off to an unpleasant begin in Tanger as Pablo Sarabia pushed Los Rojiblancos ahead only 8 minutes into the amusement. 

In any case, Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele turned things around for Blaugrana later on to enable the group to help up the certainty before the begin to the title-safeguard journey in Primera Division. 

The primary obstacle comes in any semblance of Deportivo Alaves who are driven by previous Barcelona's full-back Abelardo. 

Babazorros finished the past battle down at the fourteenth place in the alliance step basically in view of poor shows on movements. 

Alaves lost upwards of 12 of 19 away diversions in the season which is the reason we consider them to be monstrous underdogs against the protecting heroes away at Camp Nou. 

Barcelona vs Alaves Head-to-head 

Barcelona won 15 and lost just 2 of 21 H2H amusements with Babazorros. 

Blaugrana won every one of last four conflicts against Alaves, including the Copa del Rey last a year ago (3-1).

Barcelona vs Alaves: Prediction 

We anticipate that Ernesto Valverde will utilize a squad fundamentally the same as the one which played Sevilla on Sunday evening. 

Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic could find the opportunity to begin for Rafinha and Arthur this time around. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are protected in advance, while it will intrigue check whether Ousmane Dembele will begin by and by here in the wake of scoring the victor against Sevilla. 

Barca won 16 and drew 3 of 19 home recreations last season and we can't envision some other situation yet a sure triumph for them here. 

You can have Barca to win by at least three goals at the chances of 1.90, while we will on the other hand back the host to net at least three goals in the match at 1.53.
