Will Elche suffer an historic Copa del Rey upset?
So far in this competition, los Franjiverdes have won a pair of away games 3-0, ousting both L’Alcora and then Guadalajara.
Meantime though, Elche are rock bottom of La Liga, with just four points after 15 outings, failing to win any of them.
Five different men, including two caretakers, have taken charge of an Elche match this season, with Pablo Machín’s first game resulting in defeat at Atlético Madrid last Thursday.
So, can Cueta add to Elche’s misery?
The hosts ply their trade in Primera Federación, Spain’s third-tier, and are looking to reach the Copa’s fourth round for the first time ever.
To get this far, Cueta have beaten Utrera 1-0 and the UD Ibiza 3-2, setting up this historic occasion.
Will Elche avoid an embarrassing exit at Estadio Alfonso Murube?
