Barcelona made hard work of their Copa del Rey clash against Cornella on the road. The third-tier outfit forced extra-time before Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite secured the win for the Catalan club. Ronald Koeman’s side have won their last three league matches on the bounce, but they remain 10 points of the pace of Atletico Madrid at the top of LaLiga. They need to keep up the pressure today.

Elche are winless in their last 12 matches in LaLiga, which has left the club sitting in 18th place in the table. Last time out they did storm into a 2-0 lead against Real Valladolid courtesy of a brace from Josan Fernandez. However, Valladolid battled back to earn a share of the spoils. Jorge Almiron is under pressure and needs a positive result to guide the newly-promoted side away from danger at the foot of the table.

Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the LaLiga clash between Elche and Barcelona at the Martinez Valero.
