Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Mallorca, Real Madrid will be looking to return to winning ways in the La Liga round 12 when they take on Elche at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero. Los Blancos aim to melt Real Sociedad’s advantage in the La Liga standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at los Franjiverdes. All Ceballos, Isco, Valverde, and Bale are sidelined with injuries, while Eden Hazard is pushing for a start.
Elche, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-match winless run in the Spanish top flight. Elche suit Real Madrid, and seeing that Carlo Ancelotti’s men are eager to return to winning ways in Primera Division, away win should be considered. Fran Escriba should have a full squad to choose from for Saturday’s encounter with the Spanish giants.
Highlighted Player (Victor Rodriguez):
Victor Rodriguez is a professional player who began his senior career at Vilajuiga, playing 36 matches for the club and scoring 11 goals.

Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
