Match preview

Will Elche, finally, claim their first La Liga win of the season?

On Monday night, los Franjiverdes did, at least, get another point on the board, holding Cádiz to a 1-1 draw.

Ezequiel Ponce’s late header snatching a draw at Estadio Ramón de Carranza.

Nevertheless, Elche are still searching for their first victory of the season, accumulating a measly five draws from 17 outings.

This leaves Pablo Machín’s side 12 points from safety so, if they are to pull off the greatest of great escapes, it’s going to have to start soon.

In stark contrast, Osasuna are chasing European qualification, beginning the weekend seventh.

Jagoba Arrasate’s team beat Mallorca last weekend, Aimar Oroz the only scorer, meaning they’ve won four of their last eight in La Liga.

Then, on Wednesday night, los Rojillos upset the odds in the Copa del Rey, knocking out the holders.

Osasuna, somehow, held Real Betis to a 2-2 draw, with David García equalising in stoppage time, before Rubén García made it 2-2 in extra time.

In the subsequent shootout, Chimy Ávila, Ante Budimir, Jon Moncayola and Kike Barja all made no mistake from 12 yards.

This meant that, by the time Guido Rodríguez slipped and scooped his effort over the bar, Osasuna had done it.

Los Rojillos have reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010, meaning their season could hardly be going any better.

Thus, everything points towards an away win at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.
