ALA vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: In the Spanish La Liga clash on Saturday night, Barcelona will face the challenge of Barcelona. After losing El Clasico last weekend, Barca responded in style by beating Juventus in Turin in midweek to get back ton track. They have lost their last two games in the league and that will be something Ronald Koeman will know he has to remedy. They make the trip to Vitoria to face an Alaves side that is coming off an excellent 2-0 win away to Valladolid. That will give them plenty of confidence ahead of this game but it will not be easy against this Barca attack. They went down 3-1 to Villarreal earlier in the season but have otherwise not faced any top opposition so far. Their defence will struggle to cope with the Barca attacking quartet and the visitors can come away with a victory. Let’s take a look at ALA vs BAR Dream11 Team prediction now.
