Elche marked their return to the top flight after 24-years away with a disappointing opening day defeat to Rayo Vallecano and will be looking to quickly resurrect their season.
There are genuine concerns for coach Fran Escriba as he saw his side fail to cause any problems for the Rayo backline, who had been completely overhauled over the summer.
la Real have picked up where they left off last season and, in their 2-0 victories over Getafe and Olympique Lyonnais in La Liga and Champions League qualifying respectively, and will be hoping to build on the good form they’ve displayed so far.
However, the side from San Sebastien may be feeling a little jaded thanks to their jaunt to France so Elche could hit them on the break if they want to take advantage.
But, Real, with Carlos Vela leading the line may just have a little too much for the side from Alicante.
