Elche – Real Madrid Match Preview

  • Elche defied the odds to stay up on the final weekend last term, and another successful escape act will hinge on them replicating the never-say-die spirit of their last home game (D 2-2 v Espanyol). While it took an 84th-minute equaliser to salvage the point, the ‘Franjiverdes’ managed to make it six La Liga (LL) home games unbeaten (W2, D4).
  • Despite following that up with a midweek loss at Alavés, a repeat of last season’s corresponding fixture (D 1-1) – during which Elche equalised after a HT deficit – would surely lengthen the odds against their relegation. Only the most ardent Elche fans will aspire for better than a draw though, with the club’s last win over Real Madrid dating back to March 1978.
  • Real followed up a valuable El Clásico victory with a disappointing 0-0 draw against a resolute Osasuna on Wednesday. That ensured they ended the latest midweek round just two points better off compared to the tally they held after ten LL games two seasons ago, when they won a 34th national title.
  • Given that Real followed up August’s 4-1 away win against Alavés with five LL road trips settled by single-goal margin or drawn, nothing can be taken for granted. Even with the gulf in quality on paper, you would certainly get long odds against Real coming anywhere close to repeating their 11-2 drubbing of Elche (Feb 1960) – still the club’s biggest LL victory to date!
  • Players to watchDarío Benedetto netted the equaliser for Elche in their last home game, meaning that four of his last six goalscoring games have seen both teams score. Yet, he could well be upstaged by Real menace Vinícius Júnior, who struck a quickfire second-half double (51’, 56’) in Real’s most recent handicap-beating competitive away win.
  • Hot stat: Elche have lost the corner count in nine of their 11 league matches this term.
