One change for Barcelona at half time. Franck Kessie is replaced by Gavi – perhaps a sensible move by Xavi with Kessie infuriating the Elche players with three robust challenges in the first half and avoiding a second yellow.
They finally broke the deadlock through Robert Lewandowski, before Memphis Depay added a second.
Pedri had a third ruled out, before Elche manager Francisco Rodriguez was also sent off.

Barcelona have simply been superb, helped by the early red card for Gonzalo Verdu after just 15 minutes.
10-man Elche are putting up a good fight and frustrating the Barça attack after the first 30 minutes, and the home team needs a goal before halftime to stay in control of this one.
It’s another sending off for Elche, but it’s manager Francisco Rodríguez who gets a red for insulting the linesman who didn’t flag Pedri for offside.
It’s an amazing second goal was Memphis Depay receives the ball with his back to the defender, spins to his left and fires a rocket into the crossbar and into the net!
It looked like a tight offside but Lewandoski was ruled to be onside.
That was the Pole’s 10th goal of the season already – what a signing the £45m signing is proving to be.
Barcelona nearly score moments later and you just wonder if the floodgates will open now after the visitors held out for 34 minutes.
Pedri makes it 3-0 for Barça with a tap-in after a save by Badia, but the midfielder was offside after Lewandowski’s initial shot and the goal is called off by VAR.
Ousmane Dembele has looked imperious, while young left-back Alejandro Balde has been very impressive.
