Fine performance from the goalkeeper, who repelled everything that came his way this evening. Made a couple of very important stops.
Picked up an unnecessary booking, and lucky not to have been sent off after an off the ball tackle on Sanchez. Other than that, made a solid defensive contribution.
Lomban experienced a few hairy moments, but over the course of the 90 minutes, put in a stubborn performance to keep his side level.
Assured performance on the right by Suarez, who struggled initially by the width that Barcelona offered. Dealt well with the aerial opportunities.
Cisma fared well on the left, supplementing the attack on the counter, but made greater contributions to the defensive effort. Limiting Dani Alves on the far side, especially on the second half.
Combined well with his attacking partners, with good passing and creativity in the final third. At times, was lacking a killer final pass however.
Showed brief glimpses of quality, attacking well on the far side. Should've put this game to bed, skying a fine opportunity late in the second half.
Struggled in the second half, as Barcelona upped the ante, resorting to kicking the ball away at every opportunity. Could not close the visitors down in and around the penalty box.
Strong showing from Javi Marquez, who broke up the opposition, and drove the counter attack forward. Calm and efficient in possession.
The Colombian midfielder had his work cut out this evening, but put in a solid showing, with a number of last minute interventions.
Coro posed a few problems for the Barcelona defence with his movement, but he was unlucky to not test Pinto more. Was replaced in the second half.
Comfortable performance from Pinto, who made a couple of good saves when it counted.
Failed to spark on the left wing. His deliveries left a lot to be desired, as they more often than not failed to find a teammate. Disappointing.
Like Adriano, his crossing disappointed this evening, but maintained good pressure on the right, linking up with Iniesta and Messi. Was a potent threat on the right.
Struggled with his positioning, but put in a decent performance at the back. Got up forward on occasions well also.
Not overly pressurised by an Elche team pinned back in the second half. Went about his duties accordingly, with minimal fuss.
Struck a stunning volley in the first half in what was Barca's best opportunity. Created a host of chances, but not always on the same wavelength as Messi.
The combative defender picked up a booking in the first half, and got stuck in, making a couple of key interceptions to limit Elche in the second half.
Will be disappointed by his lack of action in the final third, but asserted himself well in the middle of the park this evening.
A frustrating evening for the Argentine star. Was kept at arm's length by an outstanding Manu Herrera, who denied him twice. Missed a late chance also, to cap off a barren game.
Did not impress this evening. Pedro was the beneficiary of much of Barcelona's attacking ventures, but he failed to seriously test Manu Herrera. Lacked precision.
Scored a hat trick in the reverse game, but couldn't replicate that this evening. Shined in the first half, with his movement and pace causing problems. Tailed off in the second period.
