Barcelona have conceded in each of their last eight competitive matches.
Elche have scored in their last three La Liga games.
Barcelona have averaged 2.87 goals per game in their last seven La Liga outings, winning six of them.
Struggling Barca to find their feet
It’s safe to say that it hasn’t be the best of weeks for Barcelona fans, with a 4-1 humbling at the hands of a Kylian Mbappe-inspired PSG being followed by a frustrating draw at home to Cadiz, leaving them on the brink of Champions League exit and eight points off the pace in La Liga.
However, the Catalan giants should be able to return to winning ways on Wednesday when they host an Elche side battling relegation.
The visitors did manage to end an eight match winless streak at the weekend but that came against fellow relegation candidates Eibar, and a trip to the Camp Nou is a different prospect entirely.
Still, they are showing signs of improvement. The visitors have scored in each of their last three games and, with Barcelona conceding in their last eight competitive games backing both teams to get on the scoresheet could prove fruitful.
A Barca win looks very likely though. They have averaged 2.86 goals per game over their last seven league matches and have won their last six meetings with Elche, so a 3-1 correct score prediction is our choice.
