Elche require a positive result, as Mallorca go to Estadio Martínez Valero

Can Elche make it three out of three, having turned over Rayo Vallecano 2-1 and Barcelona 3-0 in their last two games?

Also, Elche will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose five games this LaLiga season. With one point (0W, 6L and 1D), they are established in twentieth position in the League having drawn one game and lost six matches.

Playing at home, Elche have drawn one game and lost two meetings.

A win in this fixture would take Elche’s points to 4 in the League.

Elche’s squad will likely be depleted of four of their key players when they start on Monday, due to injury or illness.

Mallorca’s campaign so far has seen them accrue eight points this season

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Barcelona for Javier Aguirre’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Also, Mallorca have now lost two of their last three fixtures, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Javier Aguirre. With eight points, they currently sit twelfth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws having won two matches, drawn two meetings, and lost three games.

Mallorca will travel to Elche with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory, one dart, and one losse.

Winning this fixture will see Mallorca on 11 points.

Mallorca are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Javier Aguirre’s selection choices significantly.
