“Now we wait on Atletico,” he says after the 2-0 win over Alaves.
“Or, in another case, we can wait until Saturday to win it with our fans.
“I’d prefer to win it on Saturday at home and celebrate it with our supporters, although if we win it before then it will be welcome.
“We deserve this league title, we’ve been the best.”
Alena was one of a few changes made by Ernesto Valverde from the home win against Real Sociedad at the weekend and he repaid the coach’s faith in him by scoring in the second half.
“We started well,” Alena says of the match.
“We had a few chances in the first half, then they made it more difficult for us.
“It was a great pass from Sergi Roberto that Luis Suarez, who is great and the best No. 9, dummied perfectly and it was 1-0.
“I’m happy to help the team where I can and it was three important points.”
