Our Latest Elche vs Barcelona Predictions and Picks

If you're looking for reliable La Liga predictions, such as our picks for Elche vs Barcelona, you've come to the right place.

Barcelona to Win and Lead at Half Time

While Barcelona is seemingly cruising towards the title this season, Elche is stuck in the last place in the standings, with little chance of survival at this point.

Based on that alone, it's clear why our first Elche vs Barcelona prediction is for the guests to win the match after also leading at half time, but on top of that, Barca is simply a much better team and in much better form.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last four head-to-head meetings between these two teams have gone over 2.5 total goals, so our second Elche vs Barcelona prediction is for that to happen again on Saturday.

Furthermore, Elche averaged 2.69 goals per game in La Liga this season, although Barcelona only averaged 2.23 goals per game, but they seem to be turning on another gear when they play Elche, so we expect a high-scoring game.

Elche vs Barcelona Preview: Recent Form, Latest News, and Potential Lineups

Read all about the latest developments at both teams ahead of their duel, including our predicted Elche vs Barcelona lineups:

Elche

It's been a pretty bad season for Elche so far as the team only managed to win two games in twenty six rounds of La Liga, so it's hardly surprising to see them sit in the very bottom of the standings. Elche is currently fourteen points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, so their chances of surviving are pretty low at this point.

Meanwhile, Lisandro Magallan, Alex Collado, Enzo Roco, and John Donald are out with injuries, while Pape Cheikh and Lucas Boye are suspended at the moment.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Morente, Palacios, Verdu, Gonzalez, Clerc – Fidel, Mascarell, Gumbau – Milla, Ponce

Barcelona

After their win over Real Madrid in El Clasico in the last round, Barcelona now has twelve points more than their fierce rivals in the race for the title, with twelve games to go. So, they pretty much already have one hand on the trophy at this point. On top of that, Barca also has a one-goal lead over Real Madrid in Copa del Rey semi-finals ahead of the second leg at home, so we may see a double for them this season.

When it comes to team news, Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, Andreas Christensen, and Frenkie de Jong are on the team's injury list right now.

Barcelona Predicted Lineup:

Ter Stegen – Kounde, E. Garcia, Alonso, Alba – Roberto, Busquets, Gavi – F. Torres, Lewandowski, Fati

Player to Watch: Robert Lewandowski

With little doubt about the outcome of this game, our player to watch has to come from Barcelona and it's hard to choose anyone else than Robert Lewandowski.

The experienced Polish striker is one of the main reasons why Barca is heading towards the title as he contributed to this with fifteen goals and five assists in twenty two La Liga matches.
