Following a pair of truly disheartening results in Europe and La Liga, Barcelona will be desperate to return to winning ways against a lowly Elche team in Wednesday’s top-flight battle. The hosts could only take a point from their clash with Cadiz at the weekend, whereas Elche claimed a long-awaited victory against fellow strugglers Eibar. It was a tale of two spot kicks as Lionel Messi’s penalty – his 16th top-flight goal of the season on his record-breaking 506th La Liga appearance – was cancelled out by Alex Fernandez’s successful conversion from 12 yards in the dying embers of the match, and Barcelona have now won just one of their last four matches in all competitions.
Barcelona had their seven-game winning streak halted by Cadiz in a 1-1 draw last weekend. Ronald Koeman claimed the stalemate to be more disappointing than the 4-1 hammering they received at the hands of PSG in the Champions League, as it was an opportunity for the Catalan giants to close the gap on Atletico Madrid after the league leaders lost to Levante at the weekend. Elche are currently 18th in the league and are level on points with their recent victims Eibar. Although Los Franjiverdes do have 2 games in hand over other relegation-threatened teams, they will have to do exceptionally well to get a point against the Catalan giants.
This is despite the fact they dominated from minute one to minute 90, and led through a Lionel Messi penalty, before Cádiz equalised with a penalty of their own a minute from time.
Five days earlier, their Champions League dreams were all but shattered thanks to a 4-1 demolition by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg.
Unless they pull off an even more surprising remontada than last time, Barça will crash out in the last 16 for the first time since 2007.
Barcelona are back in action in La Liga this week with another important fixture as they take on Elche at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Barcelona have been inconsistent in recent weeks and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture.
