Elche and Barcelona will play on Sunday, starting at 4.15pm, at the Martínez Valero, behind closed doors, in a match belonging to the 20th round of LaLiga Santander.
Elche arrives at the meeting in a delicate situation. Despite their last league draw in Valladolid, Almirón’s men are in the relegation zone (although they have 2 fewer games). At home, your balance is worse than outside: 1 win, 5 draws and 3 losses (with 8 goals scored and 13 conceded). In the last 6 games he has not been victorious (3 draws and 3 defeats). The franjiverdes need to scratch some point to get morale and try to get out of the last 3 positions.
Barça arrives at the clash after having played 3 consecutive overtimes, 2 in the Super Cup and 1 in the Cup (Thursday night). The culés players accumulate many minutes in the last days and will not have much margin to recover. In addition, they will not be able to count on Leo Messi, who will serve his second penalty game. The meeting will be a test of effort and character for those of Koeman, who will have to distribute minutes to maintain the physical tone.
