Barcelona-Elche betting preview
Two weeks ago, Barcelona beat Getafe in Madrid by 5-2 and kept the number one position in the Primera League. However, Atletico Madrid are closely following Barça, hoping for their bad results. If Barcelona want to stay on the leading spot, they need convincing wins.
Barcelona are on the top position in La Liga with 46 points, same as Atletico Madrid, but with a better goal difference. That means that the Catalan squad needs to continue their good run. Luckily for them, they have a relatively easy challenge this Sunday – Elche. Injuries are the thing that bothers Barcelona. For this game, they’ll be without Messi, Xavi, Valdes, Busquets, and a few others. That could be a serious problem if not for excellent form Barca’s Pedro is in. He has been the team’s best striker in the Spanish League with 10 goals already. If Pedro manages to continue his spree, Barcelona have nothing to worry about.
Elche were lucky to get away from the relegation zone, but they are far from a safe position. They are seven places away from the bottom, with 17 points. It doesn’t seem so bad, but their recent form is more than terrible. From the last five games, Elche got only one point (2-2 with Villarreal in Copa Del Rey). They have three losses in a row after a surprising win against Valencia in November. January is going to be a tough month for them as their fixture list is very hard, starting with a trip to the Camp Nou this Sunday.
Barcelona plan to win this game with a large difference and I’m sure they’re gonna make it happen.
