Match preview

Having finally won first the first time this season, can Elche put together something somewhat resembling good form?

A fortnight ago, los Franjiverdes beat Villarreal, Pere Milla with a hat-trick, which was their first league win of the entire campaign.

Pablo Machín’s team then firmly came crashing back down to earth on Wednesday night, smashed 4-0 by Real Madrid at the Bernabéu.

So, Elche remain rock bottom of the table, with just nine point to their name, 12 points adrift of safety.

If they are planning a great escape, it’s surely going to have to start soon.

Espanyol are the side they’re hypothetically trying to catch, with the visitors starting the weekend one point and one place clear of danger.

Diego Martínez’s side did enjoy back-to-back wins in January, but those are the only victories they’ve enjoyed in 12.

So, given Elche’s strugglers, Espanyol will feel this trip to Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero is simply must win.
