How to watch the La Liga match between Barcelona and Alavés, as well as kick-off time and team news.
Barcelona will look to bounce back from Champions League disappointment when they host Alaves on Sunday in order to keep pace with the top two in La Liga.
The Blaugrana are coming off the back of their first Champions League defeat since October of last year, losing 1-0 to Shakhtar Donetsk away from home on Tuesday evening.
Xavi's side currently sit third in La Liga table as they trail Girona, who have a four-point lead over the Catalan giants, while perennial rivals Real Madrid are two points up the road.
Alaves, meanwhile, are down in 14th with only three wins so far this season in what looks like yet another long and arduous campaign for the visitors. They will enter this match off the back of a high as they beat bottom side Almeria 1-0 in a crucial six-pointer at the foot of the table.
That result was their first victory in eight matches, and lifted them to five points above the relegation zone. Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
The Spanish Primera Division match between Barcelona and Alaves will be played at the Luis Companys Olympic Stadium in Barcelona, Spain.
It will kick off at 3:15 p.m. GMT on Sunday, November 12, 2023 in the United Kingdom (UK).

Barcelona have had to cope with some significant absentees in recent weeks and months, but the situation in the medical room has improved of late.
Pedri made his return from the bench against Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek, and could make only his third start in the league this year having returned from a significant injury, while the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha are back and can start from the get-go here.
Sunday's game may come too soon for Frenkie de Jong, while Sergi Roberto is also ruled out with a calf problem sustained last month. Gavi is suspended for this match due to accumulation of yellow cards, so there could be a reshuffle in midfield.
The only major absentee for Alaves is Atletico Madrid loanee Giuliano Simeone, who has suffered a serious ankle problem. The striker is joined on the treatment table by fringe cast Carlos Benavidez, who has a muscle injury and will miss most of November.
Nikola Maras could return to the fold now that he has mostly recovered from a nasty head injury. Samu Omorodion could come in this weekend to replace Kike Garcia up top.
