Elche will play at home with Barcelona in the 27th round of the championship of Spain. The match will take place on April 1, starting at 19:00 GMT.
Elche is having a disastrous season in the league and the team is currently in last 20th place in the table with 13 points, 14 points clear of the safe zone.
The club has very little chance of remaining in the top flight next season. The main problem of the team is poor performance, as they scored only 19 times in 26 matches.
In the last round of La Liga, Elche lost away to Real Sociedad with a score (0-2), before that there was a draw with Valladolid with a score (1-1).
Barcelona, meanwhile, after leaving the 1/16 Europa League from Manchester United on aggregate (3-4), the club is actively fighting for the championship in the league.
Xavi’s team is in first place with 68 points, 12 points ahead of second place.
In the last round of the championship of Spain, Barcelona defeated Real Madrid (2-1) at home and strengthened its leadership in the championship, and before that there was a minimal victory over Athletic Bilbao.

The hosts have very little chance of success in this match, as Elche are having a disastrous season and are likely to be relegated to the second division next season.
We believe that Barcelona will confidently win this match with a difference of two goals. The guests will probably actively attack throughout the meeting, and Lewandowski will also try to score a goal.
Prediction for this match: Handicap Barcelona (-1.5)
- Both teams to score.
