Dembele, De Jong and Braitwaite after scoring // IMAGE: FC BARCELONA Barcelona will visit Elche on Sunday and we took a look at the stats to see what we can expect from both sides. Barça is currently sitting in fourth (third if they beat Elche), while their opponent is currently in a relegation battle, as they're 19th in the league. Looking at an xPTS standings, however FC Barcelona would be in third, with 36.10 points instead of 34. Elche would be in 19th, but they are actually overperforming in points, as they have an xPTS of 10.52, which is the worst in La Liga.
