Barcelona played Elche to a scoreless draw on Sunday night to take only one point in their race for the La Liga title. Luckily, table leaders Atletico Madrid also drew, meaning the two clubs will be separated by just three points when they face each other in one week.
This was a statement game for both clubs. Barcelona were, of course, looking to keep pace in the title race, while Elche looked to officially secure their place in the Primera next season and succeeded.
The Catalans got off lucky despite putting in a weak performance and now hold their fates in their own hands on Sunday when they host Atletico at the Camp Nou.
With all of that being said, let's now take the time to look at six things we learned from the result on Sunday. Feel free to get involved in the discussion below and let us know what you think of Barcelona's scoreless draw.
