Can Elche climb off the bottom of the table?
On Wednesday night, los Franjiverdes were simply swatted aside by Real Madrid, who left Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero 3-0 winners.
This was the first match of Jorge Almirón’s second spell in charge, inheriting a team who are still yet to win in La Liga all season.
As a result, unsurprisingly, Elche are in last place, now six points from safety.
Espanyol meantime are only one point above danger themselves.
Blanquiazules were in action on Thursday night, going down 1-0 at El Sadar against Osasuna.
Diego Martínez’s team did at least beat Real Valladolid last Sunday, so are seeking to make it back-to-back home wins.
Will Espanyol prevail at RCDE Stadium?
