 Espanyol is looking for a second win at home against Elche

Three more points. With that sole objective, Espanyol receives Elche, the bottom team. After the defeat against Osasuna (1-0), victory is the only way to get away from the relegation zone. The results of Diego Martínez's team this October are not negative -two draws, one win and one loss- although they have also been accompanied by individual errors that prevented them from obtaining more points.

“You have to make the team's good football moments more common and have more defensive reliability”, claimed the coach, very dissatisfied, still because of the correlation of points obtained in comparison ;n with the game displayed. “We are still far from the point where we can, we want and we are going to be,” predicted the technician,which demands competitive tension before the date.

Nobody trusts the team from Elche, who arrived after losing against Real Madrid (0-3), but who previously sealed the victory. two separate draws against Valencia (2-2) and Mallorca (1-1). The visiting team has yet to win this season, and doing so at home against Espanyol is not something frequent: they have visited the Blue and Whites' fief on 22 occasions and have only won twice, although the second occurred last season (1-2).

Without wasting time complaining, Espanyol intends to sign their second win of the campaign at home, after the one on October 16 against Valladolid (1-0). Concentration to avoid mistakes is a priority.

Find hope

Diego Martínez's coaching staff will not be able to keep up. to count on the injured Gori, Rubén Sánchez nor Pedrosa. In addition, Óscar Gil, precisely a former Elche soccer player, is in doubt due to discomfort. Be that as it may, the call will be made public. little this very Sunday.

The people of Elche travel with the need to win so as not to sink further to the bottom of the classification and find a point of hope. The only one in the competition that still does not know what victory is, Elche has hardly noticed the effect of the arrival of a new coach, Jorge Almirón, since he has only been able to add one point out of six in play.
