He had already appeared to score on his return from injury last week, and now he did it again to say ‘present’ and begin to silence criticism. Memphis Depay did not miss the opportunity from the penalty spot and scored the 2-1 of the Barcelona vs Elche comeback for LaLiga Santander, so that the azulgranas continue on a great streak.

Barcelona vs Elche: what’s coming
After the duel for LaLiga, Xavi Hernández’s men will have to quickly change their ‘chip’ and get into Europa League mode. The azulgranas will host Galatasaray on Thursday for the first leg of the round of 16.
After the clash against the Turks, Barcelona will think about LaLiga again, when on Sunday they host Osasuna at the Camp Nou, in search of continuing to fight for the Champions League qualification spots.
For its part, Elche will have action on Saturday, March 12, when they visit Granada, which has just been left without a coach after the dismissal of Robert Moreno.
