Atletico, to go back on winning ways vs Elche

Atletico, to go back on winning ways vs Elche

Atletico Madrid is looking to finally return on winning ways, as they meet with Elche in this match. Atletico are currently at the fifth of the league table with 24 points across their names. However, recently, they failed to win their recent matches. As for their opponents, Elche is the last in the league table, with just four points. In fact, this squad only awaits to finish the season, as they no longer have the chance for the knockout stage. These two teams will lock horns on December 30, 2022, at 4:30 AM (GMT+8), with Atletico hosting this game.

On their last 14 meetings, the hosts claimed 11 wins, while the hosts only won twice, and had one draw. Since November 2013, the hosts remains unbeaten by the visitors from their last 10 meetings. As for the visitors, it is very obvious that they have yet to have a good record this season. With four points across their names, this team have yet to win a game this season, losing ten and having four draws. They are hoping to at least not experience defeat in this match.

This team managed to go through the second round of Copa del Rey when they had a 3-1 on the road game against Arenteiro. Across all competitions, they won their last three games, scoring nine goals and conceding three goals. Now, they turn their focus on La Liga, but they are currently not doing well there. They are now in a three-game winless run in La Liga, but they are still lucky as they are still at the fifth in the league table. Their 24 points from their 14 games is enough to retain their fifth spot in the contest. Despite their not-so good run in the league, they are still in a fine form.

Rodrigo De Paul, Nahuel Molina, Angel Correa, and Antoine Griezmann may all be available for this match. This is after their recovery period due to the World Cup.


La Liga: Elche

This squad was not able to use fine form in the third round of the Copa del Rey here in La Liga, which is actually surprising. In Copa del Rey, they had a comfortable 3-0 win against Gudalajara, but have failed to win a single match in La Liga. Before that win in Copa del Rey, they are from a two-consecutive losses in the Friendlies against Leeds, and Genk. With their return in La Liga, they are hoping to finally pick-up a win in this match. Additionally, they are hoping to gain confidence from that victory in Copa del Rey.

John Donald, and Jony Alamo, will both miss this match, following their injuries. Josan on the other hand is hopeful that he can just shake off the muscular problem he sustained.
