Barca to win game of two h-Alves
Daniel Alves is facing his toughest test since joining Barcelona in the summer, as he travels back to Sevilla in the La Liga Primera match of the week.
Alves, arguably the best right back in the world, made his name under Juande Ramos at Sevilla after starring in consecutive UEFA Cup triumphs, now he makes his return to Andalucia with the Catalan giants and can expect an icy reception.
Barca currently top Spain's top division and have been in imperious form of late, with Alves instantly finding his feet alongside the likes of Messi, Eto'o and Henry.
However, as shown over the past few years, Sevilla can never be ruled out and despite losing their prize asset have regrouped and lie in 6th place with the best defensive record in the league.
The Rojiblancos major problem this season has been scoring goals, managing just 18 in the first twelve games, and this could prove to be their downfall against free-scoring Barcelona, who have 37 goals already.
Daniel Alves would love to cap his return to the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium with a goal and can be backed at 8/1 to score anytime. Other more obvious options could be Samuel Eto'o (13/8), Lionel Messi (2/1), or for Sevilla, Luis Fabiano (5/2) and Frederic Kanoute (11/4).
Also on Sunday, Getafe face Real Madrid at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, in a must-win game for Los Galacticos.
Real need the three points as they try to keep pace with their Catalan rivals, and will feel confident against a struggling Getafe.
