Are Elche perfectly positioned to be on the wrong end of a Copa del Rey upset?
On Tuesday night, they were beaten again, this time by Girona, despite taking the lead through Pol Lirola.
This means los Franjiverdes remain bottom of La Liga, having failed to win any of their 14 matches so far, losing ten.
So, despite only returning at Head Coach on 12 October, Jorge Almirón has already been sacked after just six games at the helm.
With Alberto Gallego in caretaker charge, again, will Elche crash out in the Copa del Rey’s first round?
Given what’s going on at their visitors, Club Deportivo L’Alcora must surely fancy their chances.
They ply their trade in Spain’s sixth-tier, namely Regional Preferente in the Valencian region.
This is L’Alcora’s first-ever Copa del Rey tie, so will they defeat top-flight opposition at Ciudad Deportiva Pamesa Cerámica?
