Elche won their last game, 1-0 versus Eibar played at home. Preceding that game, the 1-3 loss visiting Celta de Vigo's place.

Nobody expects Elche to collect anything from a game like this. The team has been David versus Goliath one time before, with the overall statistics of won one, draw zero and lost zero. When defeated, zero matches have been lost by two or more goals.
