Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Eldense and Elche go head to head at Estadio Nuevo Pepico Amat in what is going to be their first ever meeting in Segunda Division. Eldense desperately needed a win against Huesca and they managed to get one thanks to Mario Soberon’s goal, with the team putting an end to their three-match losing run. As they are no fresh injury worries in the home team, Fernando Estevez is unlikely to make changes to the starting XI that faces los Azulgranas at the weekend.
Los Franjiverdes, meanwhile, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Gijon, with the team beating Andorra 2-1 in their last league match. Elche aim to keep on climbing the standings, but beating Eldense in Valencia is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s encounter. Midfielder John Donald Chetauya should be the only absentee in the visiting 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.
