Will Elche, finally, win for the first time this season?
Monday night was another Halloween horror show for los Franjiverdes, beaten 1-0 by Getafe.
Lucas Boyé the villain at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero, seeing an extremely tame late penalty easily saved.
So, Elche have still not won this season, with that Jorge Almirón’s fourth attempt since returning as manager.
This, unsurprisingly, leaves los Ilicitanos rock bottom of the table, six points worse off than anyone else.
If they don’t win here, and/or beat Girona on Tuesday, they’ve certainly entered the realm of ‘cut adrift’.
Given their visitor’s struggles, Real Valladolid will certainly fancy their chances of a victory.
Blanquivioletas had won back-to-back games, beating Celta de Vigo and Real Sociedad, before defeat on Sunday.
Pacheta’s team conceded twice in five first half minutes, unable to recover, so beaten 2-0 by Osasuna at El Sadar.
Nevertheless, Valladolid kick off in 11th, seeking a third successive victory at home.
Will the supporters inside Estadio José Zorrilla be celebrating another win?
