Mubarak Wakaso rallies Alaves fans ahead of Barcelona clash



Deportivo Alaves midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has urged their supporters to turn out in large numbers and rally behind the team during their crunch La Liga clash against Barcelona.

The Basque club will face a tough test when they host the Catalan giants at the Mendizorrotza Stadium on Saturday.

Barcelona won the corresponding fixture 6-0 in 2016-17, but lost 2-1 at home to the Basque outfit, whom they then beat 3-1 in the final of the Copa del Rey in May.

Deportvo Alaves posted a video of Wakaso on their Twitter page, with the Ghanaian player saying: “Necesitamos tu apoyo vs @FCBarcelona”  which literally translates We need your support vs @FCBarcelona”.

Wakaso made his debut for Deportivo Alaves in their 1-0 loss to Leganes last week.

He joined Spanish top flight on a permanent basis from Greek side Panathinaikos after his loan at Granada CF ended.

Alaves impressed in La Liga last season, finishing ninth in the Primera Division and also reaching the final of the Copa del Rey, losing 3-1 to Barcelona at the Vicente Calderon.
