The weakest team in La Liga, Elche will face Barcelona, the league's leader, and national champion, without five minutes. After 26 games in La Liga 2022/23, Elche is in 20th place with 13 points, 14 points less than Espanyol in 17th place. It is doubtful that Elche can be saved from relegation, although sometimes the future hosts can surprise the results, as it was in the recent away game against Mallorca. Elche's home stats are also the worst in the division, +1=4-8, 11:21 goal difference.

Expert Betting Tips
Barcelona has conceded only nine goals in 26 games in La Liga 2022/23. In the last four games, the Catalans conceded only once, from Real Madrid in the league; in the same cup, they failed to score against Barça, Valencia, and Athletic. We believe that the leader of the Spanish championship has an excellent chance to play one more dry game; on the other hand, our opponent is Elche, an outsider with one of the weakest offensive lines in La Liga. As for the outcome, we have no doubts that Barcelona will win the game.
