Pablo Martín Páez Gavira, known sportingly as Gavi, scored the 2-0 goal in the match between Barcelona and Elche on the 18th date at the Camp Nou. The Barça squad showed off with a spectacular personal move to increase the advantage of the team led by the Spanish Xavi Hernández.
Barcelona vs. Elche: the match preview
Barcelona, which in the last week has had to process the blows of participating in the Europa League draw and the withdrawal of Sergio Agüero due to his heart problems, needs against Elche to add again three by three so as not to move away more of the positions that give access to the Champions League next year.
The elimination of the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich and the point of six possible that Barça took in the last two league games against Betis and Osasuna have once again diminished a Barça mood that had temporarily rebounded with the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the bench.
Right now, Atlético de Madrid, fourth with 29 points, is the last team to qualify for the 2022-2023 Champions League. Barça is eighth, 5 points behind the ‘colchoneros’ when it has practically said goodbye to the league title by finding itself 18 behind the leader, Real Madrid, although with one game less, the one that will play on Tuesday against Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán .
