Spanish action on Monday night football as struggling Eibar host relegation threatened Elche in what should be a tense encounter. Eibar have lost three in a row and have looked pretty poor in all three games, Eibar have now lost four of their last six home games and are in danger of dropping down the table and into a relegation battle if they continue this poor form. Eibar will look to both Piovaccarri and Arruabarrena to lead the way up front but both have struggled this season scoring just ten between them in over forty appearances in the league.
Elche are in a dog fight for survival but they have shown a little form of late and have won three of their last five to move out of the relegation zone. Elche have some promising young players in their ranks with Adrian, Rodriguez and Jonathas all looking like they may move on to bigger clubs if Elche end up relegated. This is going to be a tough game on Elche but one they must look to take points from as they are meeting Eibar at a good time.
I am going to take Elche +1 on the handicap. I like the way Elche have played recently but being away from home I think taking them straight up may not be the best move I do think Elche can get a draw here though and cash a winner for us.
