Barcelona ace Neymar expects to play against Alaves

Barcelona ace Neymar expects to play against Alaves this weekend.

He is back in Spain after a long summer of international football with Brazil.

"I'm happy to be back in Barcelona and can see myself playing on Saturday," the 24-year-old said.

While Lionel Messi's absence could perhaps speed up the Brazilian's return, Luis Enrique's new squad depth shouldn't require Neymar's services against a newly promoted side.
