Atlético de Madrid vs Elche Boasts a Solid Track Record and Hopes to Play Comfortably at Home
Atletico is disputing the direct pass to the Champions League with all of its might. They are confident they can reach this great competition and shine this year.
At the same time, they are also fighting to get closer to those top positions that, until the 8th matchday, Barcelona, Real Madrid (current champion), and Athletic Club monopolized.
But to achieve any of this, they have everything they can to win Atlético de Madrid vs Elche in a match served on a platter for the Colchoneros.
Without the Win, Elche Is Sure to Sink Even Further
While Elche might be going down kicking and screaming, it’s clear the club will have to do something more to stop itself from sinking.
In their second match, they got one point, and until the 8th matchday, it was their only point. And while the draw with Mallorca that followed allowed them to accumulate two more points, it was not nearly enough to get them out of the bottom of the standings.
It’s a tough spot to be in, and although Elche keeps on fighting, the lack of confidence is holding them back. In Atletico Madrid vs Elche they must go all out to rescue themselves in a game that seems already lost.
