Real Madrid – Elche Preview: Team News, Latest Form, and Lineups

Here you can check our previews of both teams, news, forms, and our predicted Real Madrid vs Elche lineups:

Real Madrid

Just a few days after being crowned the World Champions by beating Al Ahly in the final of FIFA Club World Cup, Real Madrid is back at it in La Liga again as they try to keep the title race interesting. That being said, Barcelona is currently eleven points ahead, so Real Madrid will have to do better and hope for Blaugrana to slip or they won't be defending their title.

Meanwhile, Lucas Vazquez, Ferland Mendy, and Eden Hazard are currently out with injuries, while Vinicius Jr. is suspended at the moment.

Real Madrid Predicted Lineup:

Courtois – Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga – Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos – Valverde, Benzema, Rodrygo

Elche

After nineteen matches in this La Liga season without a win, Elche finally managed to get all three points for the first time by beating Villarreal away from home. It was a surprising result and truly a positive one for Elche, but it seems that this is a bit too little and definitely too late for Elche to avoid relegation.

When it comes to team news, Elche will miss injured John Nwankwo, Alex Collado, and Tete Morente, while Omar Mascarell and Helibelton Palacios are also out to serve a suspension.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Gonzalez, Roco, Magallan – Carmona, Guti, Gumbau, Clerc – Ponce, Boye, Fidel

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: Karim Benzema

There is little doubt who is the most valuable player in this Real Madrid team right now, with all due respect to the quality and contributions of many other players at the club.

So, our player to watch for this game is Karim Benzema, the reigning winner of Ballon d'Or. The French striker scored nine goals in twelve appearances for the team in La Liga this season, so Elche will have to focus on him and hope that he is not in his element.
