Barcelona will look to continue its winning streak in the La Liga, as it welcomes Elche to Camp Nou on Saturday.
Contrary to the previous season, Barcelona has managed to start the new season in extremely good form. After sharing points with Rayo Vallecano in the opening match, Barca has managed to win each of its last 4 outings. The latest among those was a trip to Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla last weekend, where it decimated Cadiz 4-0. However, Barcelona will be pretty disappointed with the mid-week loss it suffered in a Champions League fixture against Bayern Munich this Tuesday. The Catalonian giants had no answer to the two goals by Bayern and went on to suffer the first competitive loss of the season. Nevertheless, Barcelona is second on the points table, with a real chance of overtaking Real Madrid this weekend.
At the other end of the spectrum is Elche, who is yet to register a win this season. Playing its third consecutive season in the top flight, Elche started off with a loss against Real Betis but managed to get a point against Almeria in the very next match. The club has however suffered 3 consecutive losses since then, the most recent of which came last week against Athletic Club. The hosts were trailing by 4 goals at half-time, and a goal by Ponce in the 59th minute wasn’t enough to make any impact on Athletic. Elche, with its solitary point, is 19th on the points table, and there is likely to be some panic within the camp as it heads into the international break.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Barcelona F. C. vs Elche CF La Liga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at Camp Nou, Barcelona, on 17th September 2022.
Despite having a busy schedule over the past couple of weeks, Xavi does not seem to have any significant injuries within his camp and is likely to be able to shuffle his players at will.
On the other hand, Elche is likely to miss out on Gonzalo Verdu and Gerard Gumbau due to injuries.
We expect the hosts to continue with their winning form, and score an easy win here.
Bet on a Barcelona victory.
Barcelona has kept a clean sheet in 8 of its last 10 competitive games against Elche. They have also kept a clean sheet in each of its last 3 matches this season. Elche has scored in just 2 of its last 5 matches, and we do not see them going through the strong defenses of Barcelona. We are therefore recommending against a BTTS bet.
Lewandowski has scored in each of the last 4 league matches, with a total of 6 goals against his name so far. He is already the top scorer in La Liga, and we expect him to extend his lead further.
