Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona will look to remain unbeaten in La Liga play against Deportivo Alaves on Saturday. 

Messi’s fitness is in question after Barcelona confirmed he is dealing with a hamstring issue. He did play all 90 minutes in Argentina’s world cup qualifier against Uruguay on Friday.  

Barca won its final game before the international break on Aug. 28 against Athletic Bilbao. They opened league play with a 6–2 win over Real Betis the week before. 

Alaves, which is back in the top division for the first time since the 2005–06 season, drew against Atletico Madrid and Sporting Gijon in its first two games of the season. 

Details for Saturday's game are below.
