This article discusses Barcelona’s recent form in La Liga and their upcoming match against Alaves, as well as the challenges they will face due to injuries and the strong form of their opponents.

Barcelona’s Good Form and Injury Woes

Barcelona has been performing relatively well in La Liga, winning four of their last five matches. However, they have suffered a blow with Ferran Torres joining the growing list of injured players, who will miss the next month. This presents a significant challenge for Xavi Hernandez’s side as they face Alaves.

Team News and Expected Lineups

With Torres out, Fermin Lopez is expected to replace him in the upcoming match against Alaves. Additionally, Vitor Roque, who scored his first goal for Barcelona in the midweek game, is likely to remain on the bench as Xavi manages his minutes effectively. Meanwhile, Alaves will make two changes, with Andoni Gorosabel suspended and Carlos Vicente injured.

Alaves’ Strong Form and Tough Test

Luis Garcia Plaza’s Alaves side has won their last three La Liga matches, making them a formidable opponent for Barcelona. With a string of victories behind them, Alaves will be looking to extend their winning streak against Barcelona, posing a tough challenge for Xavi’s team.
