Elche vs Barcelona LIVE Streaming: La Liga LIVE – This is the third successive season for Elche in the La Liga first division and the hopes of making it a fourth have all gone in the drains as they sit at the bottom of the table. Whereas, Barcelona recently increased their point gap to 12 as they defeated Real Madrid before going into the international break. As the situation is, it seems nearly impossible that Elche will be able to revive their situation as they welcome the table toppers. Follow La Liga LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Elche’s from this season has been incredibly poor as they have only won 2 games, while drawn 7 and lost 17 out of the 26 games they have played. They were having the best run since the 1970s as this was their 3rd successive promotion to La Liga’s first division. However, their condition seems bleak as they have a 14-point gap from the 17th-placed Espanyol. Closing that huge point gap as they face the table toppers next seems impossible as well.
On the other hand, Barcelona won 2-1 against the 2nd-placed Real Madrid before the international break. The league is in its closing stages and while it is still possible that Barcelona still can bottle such a lead, it seems impossible. Additionally, their focus is now only on the national league and Copa Del Rey where they also have a lead over Real Madrid in their semi-final 1st leg. With a chance to win a double, it can be guessed that they will not be taking this match lightly and will manage a win.
During the pre-match press conference, about facing Elche Barcelona boss Xavi said, “We don’t think about the next game, just tomorrow. We don’t know what they’ll do with the change of manager. They have little to lose. They’ll make them proud.“
About the possibility of Messi coming back to Barcelona next season, he said, “Messi is an option we are dealing with, and I have a friendship with him. I would like him to come back to help us. If Messi wants to return and is willing to do so, we will talk about it. However, we have not discussed this topic extensively. We are one month away from winning two important titles, and it is not the right time to discuss transfers or Leo.”

Elche Team News
- Elche have both suspension and injury concerns as they face Barcelona this weekend. They will miss both Lucas Boye and Pape Cheikh owing to suspension.
- Their injury list consists of Alex Collado suffering from an abductor muscle tear, Lisandro Magallan suffering from a hamstring injury, John Donald suffering from a fibula fracture, and Enzo Roco suffering from a muscular strain.
- The good news for the side has been the return of Pere Milla. The 30-year-old is Elche’s top goalscorer and will give their side a boost as they face a mighty opponent next.
- The new coach could opt for Ezequiel Ponce rather than Randy Nteka and Gerard Gumbau could back him in the midfield.
Barcelona Team News
- The list of long-term absentees still includes Ousmane Dembele and Pedri who will still take at least another 3 weeks to recover from their hamstring issues.
- Meanwhile, both Frenkie de Jong and Andreas Christensen picked up a hamstring issue and a calf injury respectively during the international break. Hence, as of now, they both will be out for this fixture.
- While Araujo has recovered from his injury, it’s unlikely that Barcelona boss Xavi will risk him before the El Clasico next week. Hence, Marcos Alonso and Eric Garcia could be starting at the back in his place.
- On the frontline, Raphinha will be out owing to a suspension, so both Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres could be joining Robert Lewandowski in the attack.
Elche vs Barcelona Probable XI
Elche Predicted XI: Badia; Morente, Palacios, Verdu, Gonzalez, Clerc; Fidel, Mascarell, Gumbau; Milla, Ponce
Barcelona Predicted XI: Ter Stegen; Kounde, E Garcia, Alonso, Alba; Roberto, Busquets, Gavi; F Torres, Lewandowski, Fati
