Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Jose Zorilla will host Wednesday’s La Liga game between Real Valladolid and Elche. La Pucela head into the midweek clash following a 4-1 Spanish Cup win over Pena Deportiva, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of Elche. Real Valladolid aim to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the relegation six-pointer. Garcia, Janko, Kiko, and Marcos Andre are all sidelined with injuries, while El Yamiq has been tested positive for coronavirus.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, aim to make amends for the Copa del Rey defeat to Rayo Vallecano. The likes of Boye, Fidel, Gonzalez, and Morente Oliva are all out of contention through injuries, while Marcone is banned. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Real Valladolid looked sharp in front of goal in the extra-time win over Pena Deportiva.
Highlighted Player (Bruno González):
Bruno Gonzales Cabrera is a product of Tenerife football academy. The 184-cm-tall defender played 77 games for los Blanquiazules before joining Real Betis in 2014. Bruno signed a three-year deal with the Andalusian outfit and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the La Liga club.
The centre-back scored three goals in 81 appearances for los Beticos in the league and at the end of the 2016/2017 La Liga campaign he moved to fellow Spanish club Getafe. Bruno Gonzalez was born in Las Galletas, Spain on May 24, 1990 and he has yet to make his debut for the Spain national football team.
You should bear in mind that he scored his first professional goal on December 1, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Girona during his spell with Real Betis. His preferred foot is right and his contract with Getafe should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Elche):
Established in 1923, Elche is a Spanish club that competes in La Liga. Los Franjiverdes welcome their rivals at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero, the stadium which can hold up to 33,732 spectators. The venue was opened on September 8, 1976.
Elche wear white shirts with green stripe and white shorts when playing at home, while black is the dominant colour of their away jersey. The club’s biggest success came in 1969 as Elche made it to the Copa del rey final. Los Franjiverdes faced Club Atletico de Bilbao in the Spanish Cup final, with the Basques winning the match by one goal to nil.
The likes of Mario Pasalic, Ivan Bolado, Garry Rodrigues, Goran Djorovic, Albert Nadj, Wakaso, Moha, Carlos Sanchez, Ioan Andone, Enzo Roco, Dominique Malonga, Richmond Boakye, and Sory Kaba are some of the notable players who were part of the team in the past. Elche have never represented Spain in European competitions.
