Likely, a high-scoring affair is on the cards.

Elche are placed 20th in a table of 20, and need to close a gap of 17 points to avoid relegation. And they have just six fixtures remaining. Not only do they have to win each one of these six games, but several other results have to go down their way as well.

On the other hand, Almeria lost just four times at home in the past eight months in all competitions, and they will likely use this match-up as an opportunity to build on their safety cushion of points.
