FC Barcelona vs Elche CF: Picks & Preview 9/17/2022

September 15, 2022



Game Preview


Barcelona will be trying to make it five La Liga victories in a row when they continue their domestic campaign at home to an out-of-form Elche side on Saturday. The Catalan outfit are currently second in the table, two points behind the leaders Real Madrid, while Elche are down in 19th, having only picked up one point from their first five games of the season.


Elche are currently in their third straight La Liga campaign, claiming 13th in the top flight last season, which proved to be their joint-highest finish since 1976-77. Los Franjiverdes were only four points outside of the relegation zone last term, tough, and they have found it difficult in the early stages of this season, picking up just one point from five games to sit 19th.


Elche have scored just twice and conceded 13, meanwhile, which are worrying statistics ahead of a trip to Camp Nou, especially with Barcelona looking to bounce back from their European disappointment. Francisco’s side started their 2022-23 campaign with a 3-0 defeat at Real Betis before claiming their first point of the season at home to Almeria one week later.


Since being held to a goalless draw by Rayo Vallecano on the opening weekend of the new campaign, Barcelona have been in brilliant form in La Liga, recording four straight wins, scoring 15 times in the process and conceding just once. A 4-1 victory over Real Sociedad on August 21 was followed by a 4-0 win over Real Valladolid, while they have also beaten Sevilla 3-0 and Cadiz 4-0 in their last two league games.


Xavi’s side will enter this match off the back of a defeat, though, having suffered a 2-0 reverse to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last Wednesday, it was a largely even game in Munich, but the home side scored scored twice early in the second half through Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane to secure the win.
