It's a good time for Barcelona football right now. After a disappointing loss to Real Sociedad that triggered #TheCrisis, the team has responded in spectacular fashion, riding an impressive five-game winning streak in which they have beaten Atlético Madrid twice while delivering an exciting set of performances. Over the last five games, Barça have scored a whopping 17 goals, good for a plus-16 goal differential, a great mark for a team that struggled to find the net a while ago.
The Blaugrana will look to keep their momentum going by getting the better of Elche in Round 20 of the Spanish League. Elche are a familiar side for Barça this season; they have already met three times so far, twice in January alone. The Catalans have won all three games by a combined score of 12-0, which suggests that a Barcelona win this Saturday will not be a shocker. Not even close.
