Barcelona has a much more classy player material compared to Elche. Evidently, the inclusion of the Bundesliga’s top scoring star, Robert Lewandowski, was able to add to the Blaugrana’s attack data, after being left by Lionel Messi who moved to PSG.
Unfortunately in the last match in the 2022-23 Champions League group stage, Barcelona actually lost to Lewandowski’s former club, Bayern Munich. However, the results in La Liga are quite encouraging so that Barcelona can still compete at the top of the standings.
Victory over Elche tonight could be a solace for the Blaugrana who had just lost to Bayern Munich in the 2022-2023 Champions League.
In order to get full points, Barcelona coach, Xavi Hernandez is predicted to play Lewandowski, Ferran Torres, and Ousmane Dembele as a trio on the Barcelona front line supported by Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets.
