Barcelona vs. Elche Football match in Spanish Primera Division tournament

We are offering our experts' prediction for the Spanish championship match, in which "Barcelona" will host "Elche" on February 24. Will the guests be able to resist the vice-champion? The answer is in our material.

F.C. Barcelona

February can hardly be called successful for "Barcelona". Catalans made it to the Spanish Cup semifinals after they knocked "Cornella" (2:0) and "Rayo Vallecano" (2:1) out of the tournament. In the first match of the 1/2 final stage, the "blue-garnets" failed to beat "Sevilla" (0:2). The team was also left without the Super Cup losing to "Athletic" in the final (2:3).

In La Liga, Ronald Koeman's wards started their performance unsuccessfully, but after 23 rounds they managed to win 14 victories and draw five times, which brought 47 points and the fourth position.

Since the beginning of 2021, the team has issued a streak of seven victories, which was interrupted last Sunday, when they failed to deal with "Cadiz" at home (1:1), although before that they had beaten "Athletic" (2:1), "Betis" (3:2) and "Alaves" (5:1). It must be noted that the team has the best performance in the attack line, having hit the opponents' goals 50 times. The main scorer of the team and the entire league is Messi (16 goals).

Today Araujo, Fati, Roberto, and Coutinho, who has a knee injury, will not participate in the match.

Elche CF

"Elche" returned to the elite championship after five years. The start in the Spanish Cup for the "white-greens" was not very successful, although the team from Alicante had passed two stages, beating "Bunol" (2:1) and "La Nucia" (1:0). In the third stage, the guests were defeated by "Rayo Vallecano" (0:2).

In the Primera Championship, the situation for Francisco Escriba's guys is very alarming. In 2021, the "green-striped" played in a draw with "Villarreal" (2:2) only once and could beat "Eibar" (1:0) in the last round. The team has 21 points and 18th place in the relegation zone. The gap from the last place is only two points.

The team's weakest line is the attack, having scored only 20 goals, which is the second-worst result in the tournament.

Diego Gonzalez and Fidel are in the infirmary of the team.

Statistics

  • "Barcelona" has won only one of their last 4 matches.
  • "Elche" has lost 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • "Barça" won their last five head-to-head matches.
  • The last personal match ended with the victory of "Barcelona" (2:0).

Our Prediction

"Elche" will have to fight for survival, but the team's chances of success are low. "Barcelona" lost points with "Cadiz" and suffered a fiasco from PSG, but this will hardly affect the result of this duel because the team has experienced performers and an ambitious coach.

We believe that Ronald Koeman will be able to set "Barça" up for this duel and the favorite will win.

Our prediction is a confident victory for "Barcelona" and we bet on this with odds of 1.14 on 1xbet
