What is happening with Barcelona?
Barcelona are in a series of 13 games in La Liga without a loss. Nevertheless, the situation around them has become more complicated.
First was the unpleasant loss to PSG.
And then the complete superiority over Cadiz and lost points after a goal from a penalty in the 90th minute.
Thus, the Catalans failed to take advantage of the wrong step of Atletico after their home loss to Levante.
And they even allowed the winner Osasuna – Sevilla, to bring them down to 4th position.
Conditions and restrictions apply. 18+.
Elche has a new coach and hopes!
Elche are a newly promoted team in La Liga. And of course, they are involved in the struggle for survival.
And with them the situation is very interesting.
They are currently in 18th place. But with a distance of 1 point from the 16th in the standings and 2 games less than them.
It is also interesting that they definitely perform above expectations according to xPTS . Instead of the expected 12.37, they have 21 points.
They perform above expectations both in the attack phase and in defense. And then at home and on the road.
I have no idea if this is the result of any luck or just their merit.
But due to the persistence in this trend, it is rather the second probability.
They enter the match after an extremely important 1-0 victory over Eibar in a match for 6 points. But the truth is, she was completely undeserved.
Forecast for Barcelona – Elche
For this match, the difference in class and goals of both teams is huge.
Probably the home victory for Barcelona will take place. But I am not interested in the coefficient offered for it.
At least, Elche have a new coach from February 14 – Fran Escriba. And they are after the victory.
It is difficult to play against an opponent who has new ideas. And there is no basis from which to analyze it.
Barcelona is in such a situation. And the recent failures are not known how they have affected the psyche of the players.
However, I will bet the guests to score a goal. And in the household, I have no big doubts.
A small bet, however, on this forecast.
- victory for Barcelona
- security: 10/10
- exact result: 1-0
