Ivan Rakitic is the only one of the starters that Ernesto Valverde left at home for the match in Vitoria against Alavés, a match for which he recovered in the call to the Belgian center Thomas Vermaelen, who was injured. Apart from the absence of the Croatian midfielder, Barça coach left out the call to Kevin Prince Boateng, Murillo and Todibo. Barça needs six points, regardless of what Atlético de Madrid does, to ensure the domestic Championship. Abelardo Fernández, local coach, recovers for this envite the defenders Víctor Laguardia and Rubén Duarte, fundamental in the defense of Vitoria, but will not be able to count on the Argentinean Jonathan Calleri, offensive reference throughout the year, for accumulation of warnings.
Deportivo Alavés: Pacheco; Vigaray, Ximo, Laguardia, Ely, Duarte; Tomás Pina, Wakaso; Rolan, Jony and Borja Bastón.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti, Sergi Roberto; Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Aleñá; Coutinho, Dembelé, Suárez.
