Match preview

!No Hay Liga! which, if you’re a Barcelona supporter, is fantastic news.

Before the international break, Barça came from a goal down to beat Real Madrid in el Clásico, pretty much rubber stamping the title in the process.

Sergi Roberto equalised on the cusp of half time before, in stoppage time, another unlikely hero Franck Kessié fired home a dramatic winner.

This was made all the more sweet because, minutes earlier, los Blancos thought they’d snatched a crucial win, only for their goal to be disallowed by VAR for offside.

As a result, Xavi’s team are now 12 points clear at the top of the table and, even with 12 games to go, Barça’s first title in four seasons looks to be wrapped up.

Ahead of another Clásico on Wednesday, this time in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, Barcelona will be hoping for a comfortable victory in Elx.

During the international break, los Franjiverdes sacked Pablo Machín, with Sebastián Beccacece appointed the new Head Coach.

Presumably, this is looking ahead to next season, with Elche surly planning for life back in the Segunda División.

Anything other than an emphatic away win at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero would be a major surprise in this clash of bottom vs top.
