Elche vs Real Madrid: Match Preview | La Liga 2021/22


After a poor showing in midweek, Real Madrid will have the opportunity to bounce back to winning again when they play against Elche on Saturday, October 30.

Madrid were held by Osasuna as they failed to score after 90 minutes of action, leaving Carlo Ancelotti’s side in total frustration as they left the Santiago Bernabeu.

Elche on the other side, are without a win in their last three games across all competitions, last winning against Celta Vigo earlier this month.

Since that win, Francisco Escriba Segura’s men have lost against Rayo Vallecano and Deportivo Alaves, with a draw to Espanyol in between those games.

In the managerial head-to-head, Ancelotti has won on all four occasions he has faced Segura, making him favourite for yet another win on Saturday.

The Los Blancos has won five of their last six games against Elche in the Spanish top-flight, drawing one game – a one-all result back in December 2020.

Real Madrid has only managed two clean sheets against Saturday’s opponents, while they have scored more than two goals just on two occasion’s against the same opponents.

10 points from 11 games mean Elche are languishing in 15th position on the league table while Madrid are only behind Real Sociedad, who are unbeaten in their last 10 games in the league.
