Elche – Barcelona – Betting Review 01.04.2023
Elche hosts Barcelona at the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in a match from the 27th
round of La Liga. Remain with us and our free soccer bets for today.
Let’s start with the hosts here. Elche are at the bottom of the standings with just 13 points
won this season. They have achieved just two wins during the 2022/23 campaign. Their
relegation looks unavoidable at the moment – Elche are 14 points behind the 17th
Espanyol and the safe zone.
Before the international break, Elche suffered another loss. The team paid a visit to Real
Sociedad and unsurprisingly suffered a 0-2 defeat in San Sebastian. It was a 0-0 draw at
halftime, but after the break La Real took control and scored twice.
Once again Elche decided to change managers. Pablo Machin was sacked from the job.
It’s Sebastian Beccaece who is now coaching the team.
Barcelona are heading to another La Liga title. The Catalans are leaders in the league with
68 points won. This puts them 12 points ahead of the second Real Madrid. Everything is
going according to the plan for Xavi’s team.
Before the break Barca faced Real Madrid in El Classico and enjoyed a 2-1 win at the
Camp Nou. Ronald Araujo scored himself an own goal, but Sergi Roberto equalised for
Barcelona. It was Franck Kessie who scored the winning goal in the last minutes of the
game. These three points moved Los Cules very close to winning the title.
Franck Kessie could be rewarded with a starting spot after his winner against Madrid. The
bad news for Barca is Andreas Christensen’s injury – the Danish center-back was injured
during international duty.
That’s the free soccer bets for today for the La Liga clash between Elche and Barcelona
on Saturday. It’d be very surprising if Los Cules lose points here – Elche are the weakest
team in the league at the moment.
