Espanyol vs Elche | LaLiga 22-23 | Matchday 11
It has been a tough campaign to match; what some teams have achieved is formidable. Others, however, have been unlucky enough to suffer the consequences of the success of others. While some see stars, cheers and applause, others get whistles, boos and reproaches. This has been the story of these two clubs this LaLiga season, where at the point of stars they see no other way than trying to improve. Espanyol vs Elche shows the face of two teams that need a convincing victory to give them a sign of life.
Two teams struggling between life and death
Elche agonizing in the bottom of the table
What Elche Club de Fútbol is going through is a real agony. And the fact is that for its first bunch of matches this club did not know the victory even once, it was far from doing it. In their first match, against a Betis team that has been sweeping this season, they lost 3-0, with no right to reply. Subsequent dates they were again knocked out with two consecutive defeats, one by Villarreal, who conceded 4 goals. The next one was a 1 to 4 result against Athletic, in one of the most shameful matches they have ever played.
It seems that they give away game after game and that no formula in the line-ups works. They have not been able to get back on track so far in the competition and so far they are only in the relegation from the First Division. They are outgrowing it and Espanyol vs Elche will be an opportunity to show what they are made of.
They have not done enough, Real Club Deportivo Espanyol, who are struggling but not giving up.
While their history is not going as dramatically as their opponents for this matchday, they have a lot to do if they want to climb a bit in the table. They have had more even games, containing their opponents a bit more. Their most significant defeat was against Real Madrid, where they conceded three goals and managed to concede one. On the other hand, it obtained a victory against one of the teams at the top of the table, Athletic Club.
It is important for the Pericos to take advantage of a match like this, against a moribund rival to get a victory and three vital points. Espanyol vs Elche will be the silver platter that could be served to the Barcelona team.
