Elche vs Real Madrid: preview

Real Madrid will go provisionally level on points with LaLiga leaders Real Sociedad if they can see off Elche at the Estadio Martínez Valero on Saturday - but Carlo Ancelotti’s men will have to end Los Franjiverdes’ unbeaten home streak in the process.

After the high of beating arch rivals Barcelona last weekend, Madrid suffered a frustrating night on Wednesday, as Osasuna held Los Blancos to a 0-0 draw at the Bernabéu. It was a stalemate that allowed La Real to move three points clear at the top with victory over Celta Vigo on Thursday, albeit Madrid have a game in hand on the Txuri-urdin, who take on Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby on Sunday.

Having avoided the drop by two points last season, 15th-placed Elche currently sit two points off the relegation zone in 2021/22, despite being yet to taste defeat in five league games at the Martínez Valero. The problem for Fran Escribá’s men is that four of them have been draws, and in the 11 top-flight matches they’ve played overall, they’ve managed only two wins.

Elche haven’t beaten Real Madrid since back in 1978 - but did take a point off the 34-time Spanish champions when they hosted them in LaLiga last season, Fidel’s second-half penalty cancelling out Luka Modric’s early opener.
