Alba explains difference between Cadiz and Elche matches

Alba says that Barca improved during the Elche game which allowed them to grab the three points.

The visitors opened up after the first goal, which was the key to scoring more, the left-back adds.

Alba claims that Messi's brace gave the players peace of mind.

"The draw the other day was a hard blow, I already said it, if we were not 100% it would be difficult for us to win. Today it was difficult for us in the first half, but in the second we were much better, and the goals came," Jordi Alba said after the Elche win.

"Right away we were able to score 1-0 and that led to more spaces and they opened up more. Leo Messi's two goals gave us a lot of peace of mind and then I was able to score the third. Now it's time to keep improving."

In the Cadiz game, meanwhile, Barcelona failed to score a second goal, which led to the visitors equalizing after an individual mistake from Clement Lenglet.

After the Elche win, the Catalans are back in third spot in La Liga with 50 points, overtaking Sevilla, although they have a game in hand. Atletico Madrid still remain league leaders with 55 points and a game in hand.
