Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following three consecutive defeats, Amorebieta will look to return to winning ways in La Liga 2 when they take on Elche on Matchday 26. The Basques failed to find the net in the previous three league matches and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to their goalless draught. Talented forward Angel Troncho limped off with injury in a 1-0 loss to Racing Santander, with Rayco Rodriguez being ready to step up.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Andorra (1-0) and Burgos (2-0) in the previous two league matches. As Elche managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last five league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. Forward Oscar Plano remains in the recovery room, but there are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
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.
