Home Fans Nervous About Relegation, as Elche Host Girona on Tuesday
With a win in their previous game, (2-1) against Real Valladolid, Elche will likely be in a positive frame of mind.
Also, Mantecon may ponder the reasons why his Elche team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But eight defeats out of the last 11 fixtures, should be all the analysis that he really needs. They currently stand twentieth in the League, with four points for a total of 0 wins, 9 losses and 4 draws having drawn four games and lost nine fixtures.
When Elche host Girona, they will do so on the back of two darts and four defeats on their own ground.
Victory for Elche would take their points tally to 7 so far this season.
Elche’s squad has depth, but even so, Mantecon is likely to be missing four of they key players when they start Tuesday’s game.

Girona come to this match on the back of a victory, having beaten Athletic Bilbao 2-1 at Estadi Montilivi.
Also, with three draws in five meetings, Manager Michel has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With a fourteenth position in the league and 3 wins, 6 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 13 points in the League having won three fixtures, drawn four fixtures, and lost six matches.
It must be a worrying prospect for Girona to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two draws and four losses to the home team.
Girona will have secured 16 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Girona’s squad will likely be depleted of six of their key players when they start on Tuesday, due to injury or illness.
