The BAR vs ALA match preview –
Spanish giants Barcelona will be starting their campaign to defend the La Liga title as they host Alaves in the first game of the season.
Barcelona won the title by a margin last time out. A lot of talks were done about how the transfer of Neymar away from this team will affect their chance of winning a single championship. The maestro Lionel Messi put all those talks to rest as he produced a sensational season. They narrowly missed out a spot in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League, and have strengthened smartly this summer. With Cristiano Ronaldo no longer affiliated with Real Madrid, it’s hard to see anyone usurp the Catalans in 2018/19 season.
Meanwhile, Alaves finished 14th in the table. They secured promotion before the season ended, and it can be said that for a club with their stature, it was a successful season. They have added some firepower in the Summer Transfer Window, and this will be their attempt to get a higher classification in the table than what the team achieved in the previous season.
