Elche vs Barcelona: how & where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need on how and where to watch Elche host Barcelona at the Estadio Martínez Valero in LaLiga on Sunday.
Barcelona come into this LaLiga fixture against a struggling Elche side, having played 360 minutes of football over the past week. Extra time on three separate occasions in two separate competitions means Ronald Koeman's side are not starting fresh on Sunday afternoon in Alicante.
The Catalan side will be without LaLiga joint- top scorer Lionel Messi as he serves the second game of a two-game suspension for violent conduct in the Spanish Super Cup final defeat to Athletic. Viewers in the US can watch live on Fanatiz with Elche in need of points as they continue to battle against an immediate return to Segunda.
Messi will be free to return in next Wednesday's Copa del Rey last-16 clash against Rayo Vallecano, with another meeting with Athletic, this time in LaLiga, to follow on January 31.
Barça have played 27 official games (18 in LaLiga, six in the Champions League, two in the Spanish Super Cup and one in the Copa del Rey) in less than four months. Along the way, they have lost a number of key players to injury: Piqué, Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, and Coutinho, but welcome back Sergiño Dest for the trip to Elche.
