What’s at stake?

Three early points to kick off the season. Barca has title aspirations and is the favorite, while Alaves finished 18 points clear of the relegation zone with 47 points, and this season they’ll hope to build on the 14th-place finish.


Barca all day here. At home and with the talent this team has, some of which has come this summer like Arturo Vidal, it should be a comfortable victory for Ernesto Valverde, Lionel Messi and company. Barcelona 4, Alaves 0.
