Barcelona and Elche will face each other in La Liga this weekend. The match will be held at Camp Nou and is scheduled to kick off at 3:15pm UK time on Saturday.

Barcelona

Barcelona are doing well in La Liga at the moment and are certainly a genuine threat to their bitter rivals Real Madrid in the race for the La Liga title this season. Madrid won the league title in Spain last season with ease, but Carlo Ancelotti’s side are facing stiff competition from Barca at the moment.

Xavi’s side are second in the La Liga table at the moment with 13 points from five matches, just two points behind leaders Madrid. Barcelona will head into the match against Elche at Camp Nou on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich away from home at the Allianz Arena in the UEFA Champions League. It followed a 4-0 victory over Cadiz away from home in La Liga.

Team News:

Robert Lewandowski has been in brilliant form for Barcelona so far this season, and the Poland international striker will continue to lead the line for the Blaugrana against Elche. Ousmane Dembele should also start for Barcelona, and so should Gavi and Pedri.

Elche

Elche are struggling in La Liga at the moment and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Segunda Division at the end of the season. They are second in the standings now with one point from five match, three points behind 17th-placed Real Valladolid.

Francisco’s side will head into the match against Barcelona on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Athletic Bilbao at home in La Liga. It followed a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Villarreal in the league on the road.

Team News:

Edgar Badia will keep his place in goal for Elche. Domings Quina, Alex Collado and Pere Millia all are likely to start as well for Elche.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Barcelona have scored 15 goals in 5 La Liga matches.
  • Barcelona have conceded 1 goal in 5 La Liga matches.
  • Elche have scored 2 goal in 5 La Liga games.
  • Elche have conceded 13 goals in 5 La Liga games.
  • Robert Lewandowski has scored 6 goals in 5 La Liga matches.

Conclusion

Elche are really struggling at the moment, and it is hard to see them get anything from the match against Barcelona at Camp Nou. True, Barca lost in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, but they have a far superior team and should be able to win the La Liga game against Elche with ease.

Prediction: Barcelona to win 3-0

Best Odds: 5/1
