FULL-TIME, Alavés 0-2 Barcelona: Dominant performance, clean sheet, good defending. Great work, boys!

GOAL!!!! Alavés 0-2 Barcelona (Suárez 60’): IT’S TWO FOR BARÇA! Suárez takes the penalty and Fernando Pacheco almost saves it, but it goes in anyway. A quick two goals for Barça, and this game is probably over.

PENALTY! It’s a crazy play at the box after a cross from Ousmane Dembélé: Gerard Piqué tries to score but his shot is saved, then an offside Samuel Umtiti scores the rebound. But VAR alerts the referee for a possible handball by Tomás Pina, and the penalty is given!

GOAL!!!!! Alavés 0-1 Barcelona (Aleñá 54’): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Sergi Roberto plays a beautiful pass into the box and after a gorgeous dummy by Luis Suárez, Carles Aleñá finds himself in space and just passes the ball into the net. Great team goal, and a deserved lead for the visitors.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Alavés 0-0 Barcelona: Come on, boys! Let’s find the winner and get the three points!

HALFTIME, Alavés 0-0 Barcelona: Barça dominated the entire half and created some good chances, but just couldn’t finish them. Hopefully we’ll find the scoring boots in the dressing room.

KICKOFF! Alavés 0-0 Barcelona: Come on, boys! Please don’t give me a heart attack. Just win this thing.

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, no swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
