Barcelona had a bad start at La Liga this season, but it was showing the positive return in recent rounds. The army of Coach Koeman has a sequence of 4 consecutive matches, in which they won 3 matches and mixed a match. That form helped Catalunya team shortened the gap with the top team to 8 points.
Messi and teammates are good form
The opponent of Messi and his teammates were Eibar struggling in the relevant war with only 1 point more than the red light area. They were having a chain of 2 consecutive failures and owned a series of 4 consecutive rounds without knowing the victory smell. With such a disastrous form, it's hard for coach Luis Mendilibar to create a surprise on the Nou Camp.
Similar to Barcelona, Real Madrid is also expected to have an easy match against Elche. Zidane's army is the most impressive team of La Liga at this time with a series of 5 consecutive matches. As a result, Los Blancos rose to 2nd place on the rankings with 32 points, equal to the leading team Atletico Madrid but played more than 2 matches.
Meanwhile, Elche is currently lined up at No. 16 on the rankings and only over the red light area of 1 point. Almiron's army is also very bad when not winning in the last 8 rounds. In terms of confrontation, Elche lost to Real Madrid in all four most recent meetings. With such an opposite form, a victory will be almost difficult to escape Real Madrid in this match.
The top team Atletico Madrid will welcome Getafe in the derby into Madrid. Simeone's army has a great form at La Liga when he loses only one match after 13 matches. Immediately after the defeat against Real Madrid, the Wanda Metropolitano team was immediately returned to 2 consecutive victories later.
Getafe was unable to beat Atletico Madrid for the past 10 years in La Liga, with their latest victory at home in 2010. Since then, Atletico Madrid won 14 out of 15 times between the two teams. Coach Simeone's army even defeated Getafe in the last 12 matches without hishing. This is a match that Maybe not expect, and the nightmare for them will repeat again this season.
