BAR vs ELC Dream11 Prediction for Barcelona vs Elche La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


BAR vs ELC Dream11: A 2-2 draw away to Osasuna last week continued Barcelona’s run of poor performances and results. Xavi’s appointment in mid-November was always unlikely to be an immediate fix for their many, many issues and the Catalans remain outside of the European spots in the table ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures. They come up against an Elche side that come into this on the back of a 2-1 defeat in the Valencian derby away to Valencia last weekend. The visitors had lost just one of their last five matches in all competitions but they remain firmly in the bottom-half. Despite their poor form, Barca will still expect to win this one.

Who will win today’s football match?

  • Barcelona’s miseries continued last weekend when they failed to hold out against Osasuna, drawing 2-2 despite goals from Nico Gonzalez and Abde. That result followed the thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and that means Xavi Hernandez’s men are now three games without a win.
  • Since then, the Blaugrana have made the long trip to Saudi Arabia to face Boca Juniors in a tribute match to Diego Maradona a year on from his death.
  • It will be interesting to see how that result will impact Barcelona’s fitness levels here. On paper, the trip is not what this struggling Barcelona side needed.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a Barcelona win in this clash is 1.40 as per bet365.
