Two of La Liga’s bottom three go head-to-head in a huge Monday night clash at Nuevo Mirandilla.
Elche are in far more peril, given that they’re still seeking a first victory of the season.
Los Franjiverdes’ nightmare campaign continued last weekend, with Celta de Vigo leaving Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero victorious.
That means Elche have now lost five La Liga matches on the spin, collecting a measly four points from 16 matches so far.
Will Pablo Machín’s first victory as els Ilicitans’ boss come here?
While Elche look doomed, Cádiz start the weekend just three points below Girona in 12th; the bottom half is very congested.
Ten nights ago, el Submarino Amarillo enjoyed a famous victory over Valencia, with Rubén Alcaraz’s early goal enough to see them leave Mestalla with all three points.
Sergio’s side have now won two of their last five, losing only two of their last 11, with draws certainly halting any potential climb up the table.
Nevertheless, given Elche’s current turmoil, a home win seems very likely at Estadio Ramón de Carranza .
