We are heading to the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero where Elche will host Barcelona in a game from La Liga’s 27th round. Stay with us and these best football tips for today. Here we go!
Let’s start with Elche here. Their situation is okay at the moment as they are 13th in the standings with 29 points won. This puts them 8 points ahead of the 18th Cadiz and the relegation zone. If they keep these performances they should survive for another season.
In the previous round Elche suffered their 11th defeat for the season, though. Francisco’s team played a pretty bad game in Valencia and didn’t have the tools to oppose Levante – 0-3. Elche won two of their last five matches so far and they can be dangerous in certain situations.
Barcelona are enjoying revival under the management of Xavi Hernandez. The Catalans won four of their last five games in the league so now they are 4th with 45 points. They are playing so good right now it’s obvious they are in great shape.
Last weekend Los Cules made another masterful performance and enjoyed a solid 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao at the Camp Nou. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the score in the first half while Ousmane Dembele, Luuk de Jong and Memphis Depay scored after the break. Dembele provided two assists as well so it was a really wonderful performance by the Frenchman. Don’t be surprised if you see him in the starting eleven on Sunday – he’s playing very well at the moment.
Ansu Fati remains sidelined for Barcelona, though. The talented striker is plagued by injuries so he can’t be used on regular basis. Xavi has enough options in attack, though – he’s not worried.
That’s the best football tips for today for the La Liga fixture between Elche and Barcelona. Can the hosts make a surprise here? It will be very difficult against a Barca team that plays so well at the moment.
