Elche vs Barcelona: Tips and prediction – 15.01.2015

By on January 14, 2015
We expect a very easy mission for Barcelona this Thursday from 21:00 (UK Time), considering that they are 99.99% qualified in the Quarter Finals of Copa del Rey. The catalans will travel to Elche, one of the worst teams in La Liga this campaign.
 
Elche are under the red line in Primera Division, but their hopes are still alive when it comes about their chances to avoid relegation. The home side is coming after an important victory, 2-1 against Bilbao away, but this will probably be the end of their adventura in Copa del Rey. Elche won only two of the last ten home games, 2-1 against Espanyol and 1-0 vs Valladolid, so there are not many expectations from this game.
 
Barcelona will probably rest some important players, considering that they won 5-0 in the first leg and there are no concerns right now. The catalans won 3-1 against Atletico Madrid few days ago in Primera Division so they are still in the title race, even if Real Madrid is biggest favorite. Barcelona didn’t manage to score in their last two away matches, recording a goalless draw with Getafe and a defeat, 0-1 against Real Sociedad.
 
Prediction: 2/2 @ 1.53
As we said, we could see some players from the bench in this match, but we still consider Barcelona a much stronger side than Elche, so we expect them to control the whole game, both on the pitch and on the scoreboard.
The best odds for Elche vs Barcelona: 15.00 – 7.00 – 1.20
