Mallorca vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: 4 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca).
Mallorca have been impeccable in the league games on the home patch since the World Cup break.
They will be looking for the fifth consecutive home win on Saturday afternoon as the rock-bottomed Elche come to visit Palma de Mallorca.
Elche are already one foot into Segunda Division as only a miracle can keep them alive in the elite class by the end of the campaign.
The visitors played a crazy five-goal thriller against Real Betis last weekend. It was a match in which Elche dropped an early two-goal lead by getting two men sent off and giving as many as three penalties to the rivals.
Obviously, Betis just had to take advantage of the gifts and complete the comeback late in the game at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero.
Elche now have four defeats in the last five league games. They sit firmly at the bottom of the standings with 15 points between them and the safe zone.
It is worth noting that Elche have by far the worst defensive record in the competition with 48 goals conceded in 23 games so far in the season.
This will be the music to the ears of Vedat Muriqi who took his league tally to 10 goals by scoring his team’s only goal in a 2-1 defeat at Espanyol seven days ago.
