Barcelona Overview

Barcelona vs Elche Prediction

Barcelona has not improved too much since Xavi took over in place of Koeman. Because after the victory over Villarreal, Barcelona did not win any matches in the last 3 rounds, of which there were 2 defeats and only 1 draw. 

In addition to being unable to improve their position on the La Liga table, Barcelona was also officially eliminated from the Champions League group stage. Barcelona’s attack ability has generally improved, but their defense is quite weak and conceded many goals.

Elche Overview

Elche CF is gradually minimizing the number of defeats received in recent times. In the last 5 matches in all competitions, this team only had to receive 1 defeat, of which there were 3 victories and only 1 draw. 

This is clearly quite a significant improvement for a team that is weak and constantly in the bottom group like Elche CF. However, if they want to increase their rankings steadily, they still need to maintain stability. Elche CF has also gradually improved its goal-scoring process recently.
