Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Elche will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Cartagena and Real Oviedo when they welcome Mirandes to their Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero on Matchday 21. Los Franjiverdes are eager to move closer to the playoffs berth and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s encounter. Sebastian Beccacece should have a full squad to choose from against Mirandes.
Los Rojillos, meanwhile, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Albacete, but seeing that Elche are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Carlos Martin, who produced a brilliant display at the weekend, while both Miguel Baeza and Diogo Verdasca are sidelined with injuries.
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.
