In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the LaLiga match between Real Madrid v Elche
Real Madrid v Elche
Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain
16th February, 01:30 a.m.
Los Blancos return to the league after a remarkable Club World Cup campaign in which they were crowned world champions for the eighth time, welcoming bottom-placed Elche to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Any result other than a win tonight could further diminish the Madridistas’ league title hopes, as fellow archrivals Barcelona enjoy an 11-point lead and sit comfortably atop the table. A win tonight could lower the gap back to eight points, and Madrid would be hoping to do the same.
With a Champions League clash against Liverpool and Copa Del Rey semifinals against Barcelona around the corner, it would be interesting to see how Carlo Ancelotti manages the work-load of his men, and this could be a decent opportunity for Elche to take advantage of any slight stress or mistake in the Real Madrid camp to secure all three possible points and gain some confidence in their fight against relegation from LaLiga.
