Can Athletic Club Bilbao get back on track following their first defeat of the season?
Last weekend, the Lions were beaten 1-0 by Espanyol and San Mamés, the go-ahead goal coming just seven minutes from time.
The statistics that underline Athletic’s performance are the fact that they mustered 17 shots, but only two of which were on target.
Six days earlier, Ernesto Valverde’s side had scored four in a comfortable victory at Cádiz, the club’s biggest away victory for 19 months, when they last visited Nuevo Mirandilla.
But, in general, goalscoring continues to be a big issue for the Basque giants, so will they score enough to leave Elx with all three points?
Hosts Elche meantime kick off in the relegation zone with just one point to their name.
Los Franjiverdes were demolished 4-0 at Estadi Ciutat de València by Villarreal last time out.
This saw them concede 4+ for the first time since 22 September last year which, coincidentally, was also away to the same opponents.
This year, Francisco’s team did battle to a draw with Almería, but have otherwise lost all three games without reply.
All in all, Athletic will fancy their chances of victory at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.
