HC - 2 Barcelona

Barcelona vs Elche 17.09.2022

Despite their impressive start to the new La Liga season, Barcelona could not replicate that form when they travelled to face perennial foes Bayern Munich in the German capital. Two goals in a span of four second-half minutes condemned them to a 2-0 loss on matchday 2 of the Champions League. They did however hold their own for vast spells and even created and wasted numerous goal-scoring chances. They nevertheless have a chance to overtake Real Madrid at the summit of the table if they can conjure a ninth consecutive win over Elche here

Elche are in dire straits. They are yet to register a win this season and their return of 4 losses and a draw has them in relegation territory, just one place of the bottom in 19th place. They looked totally out of place at home against Bilbao last time out with the visitors running them ragged in a 4-1 loss. The odds are stacked against them here having lost to Barcelona the last 8 straight times they faced off.

Based on the form of both teams coming into this match, we can only foresee a comfortable Barcelona win here. They have been smashing all visitors to the backyard and we pretty much expect that trend to hold here. We are therefore backing the Catalan giants to overcome a -2 handicap
